When the Hero Is the Villain

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, June 4, 2022

The Use of Imagery

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Sept. 25, 2021



One of the greatest power of webcomics is that a lot can be said with an image, thus making the need for words minimal. The old ‘picture is a thousand words’ adage, and so on.

Through the power of imagery, and what we choose to add or leave out of ...

Rooting for the bad guy

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Sept. 11, 2021



Normally in stories there is the hero vs the villain or the protagonist vs the antagonist. As the audience, we generally expect to root for the hero or the protagonist and hope for the villain's or antagonist's comeuppance.

But there come those times when we find ourselves rooting ...
