When characters take on a life of their own

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, Sept. 17, 2021



As I was unwinding by absent-mindedly scrolling through Twitter, I happened upon a tweet asking if other writers/creators experience creating characters who take on a life of their own, and it got me to thinking. Recently I had drafted two scripts for one of our comics, only to then ...

Things You Wish They Taught in School

Banes at 12:00AM, Sept. 9, 2021



I've had the conversation multiple times - maybe based on something I read in the past - that the
business of taking care of your money, your credit, taxes and expenses is something that was never touched on when I went to school.

Well, these have been proclamations rather than conversations ...

FEATURED COMIC --> Follower

Ozoneocean at 12:00AM, Sept. 1, 2021



The world is turning to crap. Things are slowly unravelling outside, beyond the confines of the safe corridors of this secret biological military test facility. What's happening? We're only getting hints as the lines of communication are being restricted. Protests, war, military crackdowns… Inside the military scientists work ...

Laughter as Medicine

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Aug. 16, 2021




I walked down two flights of stairs lined with framed black and white photographs of great comedians who had visited the same comedy club years prior. The downstairs room opened up to a speakeasy-like venue with red bricked walls, a flat screen television on the left side and a stage ...

The Torture of Watching

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Aug. 7, 2021



Greece is burning, as I'm writing these lines.

There is fire everywhere, and it's only getting worse. It's probably going to extinguish itself in the sea, when it gets there, in all areas, from central Greece to Attica to Euboia. The ecological disaster is enormous. The consequences ...

Writing Women, Writing Men

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, July 31, 2021



We've all seen the cringy dialogue. The weirdly stereotypical and awkward situations. The sheer effort of the script writer, the novelist, or the comic book writer to write someone they don't know: a woman, or a man.


Too often the problem is very stark when comparing character designs ...

Mind Games

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, July 24, 2021




Sometimes the arch villain of the story is the one pulling all the strings in the background, and the protagonists don't know about them until the endgame.

Intrigue and Scheming

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, July 3, 2021



Who doesn't love a good intrigue, some scheming in the shadows, some low chuckling behind a curtain?

The author.

It's the author that doesn't love it. Or rather, the sheer background work that needs to go into writing a good scheming plot, counter plot, and the whole ...
