A Lesson is Learned Interview

Filed under: — Alexander Danner @ 10:52 am

David Hellman and Dale Beran, the creators of A Lesson is Learned, but the Damage is Irreversible, one of my favorite non-MT comics comics, gave an interview recently:

I want readers to be moved and entertained, but also perplexed. I think one of my favorite kinds of experiences, which is ultimately what I hope to share with my work, are moments when I delight in something while also feeling confused and frustrated by it. Humans are able to perceive and experience incredible beauty, but our imaginations, or maybe simply our natures, push us on to want even more. That’s why some of the most vivid moments of life also contain sadness. I think the best relief for these feelings is making art and developing understanding with other people. - David Hellman

Check out the article! I hope that ou all enjoy.

Oh, and in other news, I found out that the Drunk Duck: Drunk and Disorderly Anthology is available on Barns and Noble’s website here.

WCN Development Update 2/25/2005: Ad Server Alpha Test

Filed under: — Joey Manley @ 11:19 am

Cross-posted from my personal blog:

My overriding philosophy with WCN has been to create and launch a set of tools that webcomics artists can use to accomplish business goals, especially for the three “mainstream” business models (subscriptions, merchandise, and advertising). WCN is not a portal (like Modern Tales) or a hosting service (like Keenspace), though portals and hosting services will be some of the tools that I launch. WCN, in short, is a technology business rather than a content business.

Within the next few days, I hope to launch the advertising “leg” of WCN.

Open Ad Network will be a free service to any and all cartoonists — not just Modern Tales family members. Like Google AdSense, people who want to sell ads can come to the OAN website, sign up, grab a bit of Javascript, and start serving ads on their sites using our system. People who want to buy ad placements can also come to the OAN website, upload their ads, and find sellers whose interests match their own. The service is designed to be more hands-on than AdSense (sellers will actually have to invoice buyers and receive payments directly, rather than just sticking up ad code and getting checks in the mail). The trade-off is that sellers will get 100% of the money they earn, rather than some small percentage (as with AdSense, etc). And buyers will have more control over where their ads appear.

The “killer app” part of it is going to be the tracking and widespread public dissemination of banner ad statistics for all OAN members, broken down by category (yes, the work I’ve been doing to create a better stats package for your comics on MT, etc., is finding its first application here). Example: these are the sites where entertainment-themed banners do well. Another example: these are the technology-themed banners that do well on entertainment-themed sites. And so on.

The idea is that sellers and buyers are both looking for the perfect match: sellers want buyers whose ads are popular and successful (because buyers with good click-through rates tend to renew contracts and buy more ads, and because serving popular ads will increase a seller’s own Seller Ranking), and buyers, obviously, want sites that match their target market, and that have a proven track record of generating traffic and interest for the particular kinds of things that the buyers are advertising.

Over time, if this works well, Open Ad Network statistics for buyers and sellers will be as widely watched (and bragged about) as Google Rankings or Alexa Rankings or whatever.

Anyway, OAN does not take any of the money from the sellers, and doesn’t touch the transactions in any way. However, OAN house ads run 10% of the time in the ad placement slots served through the OAN server. Sellers will be able to filter the kinds of ads they permit — and I may launch a premium version of the service that allows sellers to operate without running any house ads at all.

Basically, the service is for those website owners (especially cartoonists, but not necessarily just cartoonists) who want more control, and more revenue, from their banner sales, but who need help generating sales leads and technically serving banners and tracking statistics about those banners.

OAN ads are now being served on an alpha-testing basis on many of my sites, including this one. But the real stress-test is the TalkAboutComics forums, where thousands of impressions per hour are served.

Very close to finishing this. Mostly I’m struggling with some user-interface issues to make the “dating service” aspect of the site (the perfect buyer trying to find the perfect seller, and vice versa) easier to navigate. I’ll update you guys when it’s finished.


Free Samples of Picture Story Theatre

Filed under: — Alexander Danner @ 9:02 am

So, I just realized that I never set up any free samples in the Picture Story Theatre archives. To rectify that, I have now made two complete stories free for non-subscribers: The Little Bear Who Knew Fear and The Unusual Education of Suzy Finnegan. Of course, I chose these samples without first consulting Bill on my choices, so this may change if Bill has other ideas.


Wouldn’t It Be Rude If We…

Filed under: — Joey Manley @ 1:43 am

… stopped calling them webcomics.

That’s what I think we should do, sometimes.

Just call them comics. And pretend like they are the only comics that exist. We can talk of the comics industry for example, and only mean our specific niche.

Like, you know, they do. You know who I’m talking about.


Clan of the Cats

Filed under: — JamieCOTC @ 12:07 am

I suppose you could put this into the “Shameless Plug” category, but I’ll try to make it entertaining nonetheless.

The girl. The one you can’t stop thinking about. Even though you have a loving wife with three and a half kids she still haunts your every waking moment. She’s not the most beautiful girl in the class, work, or town, but still there’s something about her. In fact it’s spooky if you think about it. Kind of like Magic!

Yeah, THAT girl.

And that girl is Chelsea Chattan of Clan of the Cats

Chelsea

She’s the girl alright. Even Dracula wants her.

Dracula

Of course, she’s a complex girl, so you might want to start at the beginning. ;)

I told you it was a plug.

The Daily Grind Iron Man Challenge

Filed under: — Phil McAndrew @ 9:12 pm

The Daily Grind Iron Man Challenge is a competition between online comic artists to see who can maintain the longest Monday to Friday update schedule. Each artist will be putting $20 USD on the line. The last man left standing takes the entire pot. The contest will begin on Monday, February 28th.

I thought I’d give everyone a heads up on this because Edward J. Grug III (of Modern Tales), Jason Turner (Serializer), and I (also Serializer) will all be participating in this, along with other webcomic giants such as Brian Fukushima, Dean Trippe, Jamie Dee Galey, Jeff Bent, Robin Bougie, and a ton of others.

Daily comics from all these fellows!?!?! Exciting!!! February 28th will be a grand day for web comics.


Shameless Self-Promotion!

Filed under: — Spike @ 3:47 am

I have a forum. This is very exciting.

I figured it’s time I got one, on account it might be a better way to get feedback on Lucas & Odessa and Sparkneedle (Only on Girlamatic!). Also, I have no people skills. That should change.

Feel free to drop by and desecrate the place to teach me a lesson for my monsterous hubris. You can find it here.

Share the Love: Joe Zabel’s The Ice Queen

Filed under: — Chris Shadoian @ 11:10 pm

I’ve avoided this as long as possible.

I was afraid regular readers of The Webcomics Examiner and various other Modern Tales publications might have read Joe Zabel’s frequent praise of my comic, Streets of Northampton, and think we’d made a “you pat my back, I’ll pat yours” kind of agreement. It’s true we Modern Tales folks tend to be pretty chummy — not only do we like each other, we like each other’s work — and the relationship Joe and I have is no exception. But all you have to do is count the number of times I’ve written a Share the Love review (zero) to know I don’t offer praise when I don’t want to.

For a long time, in fact, I wasn’t sure I liked Joe’s adoption of a computer-generated art style. I’ve read just about every bit of comic work he’s ever done, and I was very, very fond of his hand-drawn stuff. The work he did for Harvey Pekar’s American Splendor was accomplished to say the least, and his self-published Trespassers mystery series, which he also wrote, was sublimely rendered. I couldn’t understand why someone with the ability, talent and will to generate hundreds of comic pages, all painstakingly brushed and inked would choose such an ethereal medium as 3-D computer modeling. I thought, Where’s the personality? The little touches? All the quirks and hiccups that are inescapable in brush work, that computers are so bad at capturing?

But then, I had a similar reaction to Picasso.

I encountered Picasso the same way most do: in a confrontation with his cubist style. And man, did I hate it. For years! Until I saw what he could do when he was twelve. I saw this arm he drew, in pencil. A perfect, exact duplicate of a human arm. I could practice for the rest of my life and not draw an arm so well. Suddenly, Picasso’s cubism looked different. He wasn’t some wacky hack who chucked paint at a canvas because he couldn’t do any better. He was frighteningly talented; he could draw anything he wanted, represent its precise likeness. He could already draw perfection. He chose not to because there wasn’t any adventure in it, no mystery. No reason at all for him to do it. So he switched gears and did something no one had done before.

I’m not specifically comparing Joe Zabel to Picasso. I was just skeptical about Joe’s switch in style because my experience with Picasso turned me into a creativity snob. Joe had already proven his abilities in a medium that’s generally thought of as more creative than what computers are capable of, and my superficial examination of his switch struck me initially as a huge step in the opposite direction . . . a bucking of the tradition of bucking tradition. But the progression his 3-D style has shown in the last couple of years in The Return of the Green Skull and The Fear Mongers — along with the emergence of other impressive computer-generated works (most notably The Incredibles), made me realize I was doing the same thing I’d done with Picasso’s cubism. I was judging the medium rather than the artist wielding it. A lot of bad artists have used “weird” techniques as a crutch, and computers do benefit those who don’t want to put much thought or care into their work, but just the teensiest peek beneath the surface of Joe’s stuff reveals a depth of thoughtful construction that should be welcomed in any medium.

Which brings me, finally, to The Ice Queen. Oh, my.

Looking back at the art in his previous 3-D work, it looks to me like Joe has slowly been working his way to what he’s finally achieved with The Ice Queen: the perfect balance between reality and cartoon. The human bodies, most especially the facial compositions and expressions, have taken a gigantic leap forward. They look more human. More real. They’re more, well, flawed. Bodies are more subtly defective; people are fat, and ugly. They have acne. Joe’s even redesigned his two main Trespassers characters, Delphinia (Finn) Morgan and Raymond Fish: Finn is still very pretty, but not too pretty, and Ray has been slimmed down significantly from the hunky jock facade he used to wear over his intellectual, writer’s interior. All of The Ice Queen is like that, it would seem, more at ease with itself. While the figures are more real, the backgrounds have taken on a less real quality, despite being almost completely photographic . . . I think. I can’t quite tell what Joe’s done, actually. Sometimes I think he’s taken photos of every panel’s background, sometimes they look computer generated. He’s done something to the color and texture — though I’ll be damned if I know exactly what — to create that quality, to melt everything together. Maybe the colors have been cranked up. Or maybe it’s what I usually don’t see in computer-rendered stuff: the little touches. The personality. The reflections on glass and the glow of the streetlights that mix so well with the twinkle of a character’s eye, or the jerky twitch of a hand as . . . . Ah. I’d better stop. I wouldn’t want to give too much away. The point is, everything fits. The characters by themselves wouldn’t look real enough and the backgrounds would look too good. Together, though, they make a world that exists apart from reality, which is, I think, the ultimate aspiration of any comic creator.

The Ice Queen is just gearing up, so I’ll reserve judgment on the plot, though I will be reading it each and every day — another improvement — because Joe’s past work has been so good.

Obviously, I’d recommend you do the same.

Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan completes longest storyline ever

Filed under: — Reinder Dijkhuis @ 10:21 am

Cestfini.png After 2 1/2 years and 341 pages, the Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan storyline The Rite of Serfdom is finally finished! It ends in the finest tradition of European comics, but maybe before looking at that, you may want to take a few hours and read the archives of the storyline at Modern Tales, starting with Kangra’s flight into the cobbler’s workshop.

When I started work on this storyline, I had no idea it would be the longest I’d ever done. I knew which events would, roughly speaking, take place, but I didn’t think it would take so long for events to play themselves out. The story grew and morphed into a history spanning 50 years and two countries, touching on the birth of a new nation and the difficulties the peoples comprising that nation have getting along so far. The characters’ family history, languages, ritual, magic, religion and resentments also found their way into the story.

My plans for the next year or so are to do exactly the opposite of what I’ve been doing for the past 2 1/2 years: to create shorter, tightly-scripted stories, not to do everything on my own and keep the coloring simple. I have some collaborations lined up, and about a dozen scripts in various stages of completion, one of which will be written by a guest writer. And… fans have been waiting for this… Tamlin will return!
But first, I’ll tie up some odds and ends in the next few weeks. Starting next week, nitpicks from readers will be answered, the archives will be checked for typos and other errors, and a few things that have been bothering me will be fixed. Then in March, regular service will resume with a new, month-long storyline, Muscle, written by Adam Cuerden of Dangerous and Fluffy.

Various Glych Randomness

First off, No Stereotypes has returned from it’s brief hiatus so that I could finish some other anthology work (warning: may not be a work-safe link due to content). I met my deadline, no problem.
Also, Glych’s Experiment is updating again. ^_^ Just some doodles at first, but i do have a few actual story comics for the future planned out.
Also, I’ve been coloring Gun Street Girl, written by Barb Lien Cooper and Illustrated by Ryan Howe. I’ll be finishing up the colors on this storyline, before attacking the archives with color and catching back up to Ryan (da’ artist wid’ da’ mad skills!)

Just thought I’d let you know. ^_^

Genre City Starts New Chapter With Most Perplexing Gag Yet

Filed under: — BenjaminBirdie @ 3:15 am

Page63miniThis week in Genre City, a new chapter begins, leaving ol’ Noah at the very edge of his own peculiar cliffhanger and reintroducing us to our old friend Kid Insomnia.  It’s become clear to me that the fundamental gag of this page is the most baroque to have ever hit the pages of my already top-heavy comic.  I’m loathe to sit here and explain it, but I will if enough people comment along the lines of, "No, really.  What the eff is going on here."  I don’t know, perhaps I’ve gone too far.  What do you think?

NEW YAHOO! GROUP DEDICATED TO EISNER & PS MAGAZINE
Here’s a new Eisner link. (Details below.) I’m digging deep into my personal vault of over 200 issues to provide content for it. With my son and lots of other Americans in Iraq, its time more attention was paid to this often overlooked part of Will Eisner’s career. The group currently has two complete comic strips, some spot illustrations, and several covers.

Best,

Bob Kennedy

Will Eisner’s PS - Magazine Yahoo Group

Sparked by Will Eisner’s passing, this group will revolve around PS-The Preventative Maintenance Monthly. A monthly magazine, the longest running title that Eisner helped found uses cartoons and comics to keep U.S. Army troops informed on how to keep their equipment in tip-top shape.

Launched in 1951, Eisner stayed with it for over twenty years. Artists like Murphy Anderson, Chuck Kramer, and Mike Ploog assisted Will over the years. Anderson later headed the art shop for at time. These days the signature artist is Joe Kubert.
