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.

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, Sept. 24, 2021



In comics, as in life, characters will come and go in your story. However, how does one go about introducing them in an organic way? Sticking the landing of character introductions can make or break how memorable they are. So here are three things to consider when introducing a new ...

Banes at 12:00AM, Sept. 23, 2021



Malcolm Gladwell was in an interview, and expressed a theory, or mini-theory. He talked about the show Law and Order and how it works, with almost every episode a comforting victory of the system.
