Solving Webcomic Issues We All Face.
When to start?
- Miri LR Powell asked: “I’d like to hear more about planning and scripting for long-form comics… what you should have before you begin, how much buffer you need to start with, etc.”
- Darren Silvers Jr asked: “When do you begin publishing everything when you first start? Do you wait until you have a lot of content and post a chunk big enough for a passing reader to make sense, or do you publish right away the moment have finished a page? Question mostly for action long form comics and less gag a day formats (I meant online, but knowing the print publishing is always helpful for anyone who makes the swap from online to print)”
Some of the things we mention in this podcast include:
- Write or Die
- 4thewords Writer RPG
- Nanowrimo and NaNoManGo
- Monster Soup Webcomic
- Suihira and Make 100 Kickstarter Projects
- Rana Voicemails
Lyrics for “The Longform Takeover” sung to the classic “Final Countdown” by Europe
We’re writing together,
But it’s hard as hell
And maybe we’ll have to
Rewrite, who can tell?
I guess there is no one to blame
Full disclosure (Full disclosure)
Should I redraw the whole thing again?
The Longform takeover
We’re heading for reveals (reveals)
Though it’s at a crawl
These plot points I’ve concealed
Will surprise them all, yeah
With so many pages to go
Can’t lose my composure (my composure)
I’m sure that they’ll all love it so
The longform takeover
