Panel By Panel: Workshop Week - 'The KAMics'

hpkomic at 2:47PM, May 3, 2024

Hello, everyone, and welcome to Panel by Panel, a periodic exploration of comic panels around The Duck. As we discussed last time, we are doing workshops where users here on the site volunteer their pages for critique. We'll gather feedback and then review it over the course of the next update, including me sharing my own perspective as someone who writes a lot about this stuff.

Our first volunteer is KAM, who provided us with a page of their comic, The KAMics. This page is called “Where the Bottle Takes You 5” and I will also provide the page here for reference.

Remember, to engage with the best effort you should read a few pages beyond the one page provided, at the very least, for context. Second, be kind. You can be critical, but never mean, especially if you are trying to help. The point is to uplift and provide assistance to volunteers who share their work for the workshop.

With that said, please leave your feedback in the comments of this post for inclusion in the next article. Thank you.

The many panels are symbolic of a rush of thoughts and emotions pulling the character to a realization and sudden abrupt awaking. And of course the line at the end (from the classic Kubrick film) assists the reader understand this. It is a bit of an overload but it works here in that context. As the images are random and quick thought it really doesn't matter what order they are in. The narrative story still reads left to right top to bottom, but doesn't have to.

The panels that look like shades are interesting. I would've done a more minimalistic color palette for that so maybe it would look you're looking through some tinted shades so they pop out a bit more.

I don't find the experimental or pages being readable in more than one ways a mistake, instead of looking for a "correct way" to read, I try to approach these with an open mind. To look for context is generally a good advice in these cases. The shape of the goggles or glasses/headset down there is a good one.

it's quite the sensory overload. The Furby looking creature I like the look of. The page as a whole looks like a sort of wild trip of sorts. Reminds me a bit of Beavis and Butthead do America when they're in the desert and Rob Zombie starts playing ^^
