Solving Webcomic Issues We All Face. Now featuring a listener’s issue each podcast!
This podcast we discuss:
Ken: How do you guys evolve your characters – both personality-wise and graphically.
Dawn: Gimmi ideas of how to market (and if you even should?!) a webcomic to kids who are too young for social media, project wonderful ads and the like!
Chris: “I established Capes & Babes as a humor strip from the very beginning. Lately though, I’ve been contemplating doing more interpersonal related stories where there may not necessarily be a humorous punchline in every last panel. I’ve been reluctant to do that though simply because I worry the change would be too jarring for the people who have come to expect humor in Capes & Babes. I know it’s my strip and I shouldn’t base my creative decisions on fears of what my readers may or may not like but for whatever reason, I’m still reluctant to pull that trigger – even though I think it could potentially take Capes & Babes in a new and exciting direction. So why can’t I do that? What’s holding me back?”
Byron: A simple one: Should I put my blog posts on my home page or not? I have had them turned off for a long time for it felt to me it made the home page really long and ugly, but then I also notice the blog posts get few hits, even though they have their own page. What say you all?
Reader Issue: from Robyn of LeyLines: “Is it better to be your own publisher, or seek one? Do the connections outweigh the control? Death by “exposure”?”
