Journal Comics and Questions

edited March 2010 in Artist's Corner
Here are some issues from my journal comic Halley's Comic that I'm doing currently, so of you might remember that I've posted comics from the first incarnation of my journal comic before, but then I took a break from that, but now I've restarted it with a revamped style and approach.

Mostly what I'm wondering about though, is what people think about when a comic switches from daily to three times a week. I'm seriously considering changing it up to have a comic that's twice the length of the comics i have here, running Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

The pros and cons get even more complicated by the fact that it's a journal comic, and I generally have something to write about each and every day, but I'd like to have that bigger format and more time to work.

And since you guys are avid webcomic readers, as I am (assumedly anyway, since you post on a webcomic forum) I figured that you're perspective would be the most informative.

    Are journal comics common? I've never heard of that, so i think that it's a cool idea.
    Like the art work. Also, love the fact you do a new illustration for each frame (unlike a lot who copy/paste one frame and change the eye or arm placement :))

    Thanks! :D

    And I don't know that I'd call journal comic "common" but there are a handful of other people who do them... the two most known are probably American Elf and DAR (Though DAR has actually ended recently.)

    I usually find myself pretty bored with journal comics, but I enjoy this.

    Yeah, pretty much what Koch said - your comic is easy to read, adorable and entertaining.

    Keep on truckin'.

    These are dope! I quite like your simplifications of anatomy. The head shapes and facial expressions in particular!

    Awesome! :D Thanks for all the kind words everyone!
    I hope that this delving into longer format is actually helping and not just making it so i don't edit my concepts and keep them tight...

    I think it was because yesterday at 8 am was when I was sickest and about to pass out. I guess it's good that half-conscious me is also a decent poster.
