The dust has settled, my exams are finished and it’s finally time to make some more comics. It’s interesting trying to take the elements that have made previous webcomics successful and then build on that.
People like Avengers, they like characters they recognize and they like to see them acting silly. Mission accomplished?
Eleven more days until Guardians of the Galaxy TWOOOOO!
Boom! Two comics, two weeks. It’s like I’m getting good at this or something. Or something.
Thanos is the sort of dude who shows up 12 movies into a franchise, but he’s also the sort of dude who gets taken out by a teenage girl and her pet squirrels. I don’t blame him for wanting that infinite power, I DO blame him for not using it creatively.
Keep an eye out for Avengers: Infinity War in 2018, and keep an eye out for Thanos to use the infinity gauntlet to…shoot slightly larger lasers at people. Coming to theatres near you.
I’m learning a lot of harsh lessons about the reality of cartooning in a very short amount of time, and I spent the last few weeks locked in mortal combat with a comic I just couldn’t get right. 3 different versions and countless hours of editing later, I had a not-funny joke that was landing straight on its face.
May it never see the light of day. For your benefit, as well as mine.
Anyways, Overwatch is pretty great. You may have heard of it. Little game by the guys who made World of Warcraft. Anyways, that edgelord up there is Reaper, and his verbose catchphrase is…. “die, die, die”. The thought of these guys playing DnD and getting riled up about grammar tickled me.
It’s a dumb joke, but those are kind of my specialty.
Anyways, pencils are already done for the next one! Expect it sometime this week, and hopefully with some regularity going forward.
So long as I don’t have any exams, right? That’d suck.
