The Alliance Chat: where no topic has gone before!
Welcome to the Alliance Chat! This podcast will be about various topics in not only the comic industry, but nearly anything that effects creators of all types. And sometimes just plain old life issues.
In this podcast, we chat about: Listener issue: I have a long format story that’s just starting to get into the real meat and potatoes of the storyline. Recently the readers have began to grow more active with their comments and questions. Whiles its fun to sit back and watch the fans conjecture about story and characters on the rare occasion someone will make a post where they have completely misunderstood/misinterpreted a scene or plot line to a point where they must of read my comic in an alternate dimension. While my own readers will sometimes correct each other there are times when i want to jump in and explain things and/or correct people myself (or perhaps find out what led them to that idea). But I really fight this urge because Im not sure if I should butt in tell people how my story should be interpreted. So i guess my question is when to talk and when to shut up when talking to readers directly about the comic’s story.
And Robin brings up a great topic about a problem that faces Webcomics is a TON of supply (comics) and limited demand (readers). She wanted to know other industries that have faced this (and we give some examples) but we also want to know what you think on this, so add in your examples in the comments section! Listen to the podcast, this will make more sense. WHAT? 🙂
