    I don't want to have an argument about it.

    Edit: I was thinking of Mark Millar

    He likes Demon, ergo, he's a sociopath.

    Sociopath is a loaded term to me, because I look at the definition and I just see a different type of person. It doesn't lock them into automatically being a horrible person like people seem to think. They can learn to either embrace or mitigate their thought patterns and behaviors.

    That is seriously just some sublime coloring in the last few pages.

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    Octopus pie would be much better though if it was broken into dozens of single panels stacked on top of each other.

    Octopus Pie would be better in french, black and white, and a few sad notes plinked on a piano every few moments while cigarette smoke drifts around the stuffy room

    I don't get what you guys are talking about. Are you referencing something specific?

    Cuz like, different comics need different shapes to maintain the flow of their stories.

    That page was really nice because it's going for sort of a slice out of time feeling, emphasizing the colors and place they're in. So not having much negative space makes sense for the purposes of the strip.

    pi47fw8pfci0.png

    This strip also works really well! Lots of negative space makes each individual frame feel like a composed shot, and the space between frames adds the sense of passing time as your eyes take more time to absorb the image.

    Sometimes the strips are all set up to fit inside of a standard printed page, sometimes they make use of the webcomic format to expand and draw focus on something, or dilate or compress the sensation of time's passage. If a comic is designed to make use of negative space you're not going to improve it by just squashing its frames together.

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    And it is a stupid thing to be a dick about. Medium matters. Newspapers comics have different structures than magazine comics have different structures than webcomics designed for reading on computers have different structures than webcomics designed for reading on smartphones. Like the new Octopus Pie is lovely, but open it up in your smart phone browser and how many pages do you think you're gonna make it through? Fucking pain in the ass to read and navigate!

    A pretty simple random page to use as an example:

    8jr0lbb4hues.jpg

    If this was going to be printed out on a single sheet of paper, it would feel like a lot of negative space. But that's not how it's getting read, it's getting read like this:
    nkjw3uk7o6kj.jpg
    scroll down
    l9bfx8nkwkxi.jpg
    scroll down
    f2arblsoba4v.jpg

    Word balloon reading order tends to be very up-and-down, with the last bubble at the bottom of each "page" leading into the next vertical section. Some extra margins around each frame makes it easy to navigate, means you're not putting your thumb over the words, and gives a little extra space to easily fit all the word bubbles around the art. It also controls the pacing of what you read, it's the same technique as any other piece of sequential art, just used in actually kind of an interesting unique way for a slightly different medium.

    If you don't like something I like that's fine, but It kiiinda grinds my gears for people to be critiquing an art style without doing any thinking about why it uses the techniques that it is!

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    hey robot

    maybe when you cause more pain to the humans, they'll go to even greater lengths to fight you! Thus causing you pain, too! It's win-win!

    I'd say Namesake's present is in 2011, the protagonists have been at Calliope for some time? Doesn't matter, current page is set before the comic begins, noone knows Fred as Fred at that point.
    Oh, and he shouldn't have hair either.

    See, if Thunderstruck had just had Agnir mention what was in the shield, that might not have happened.
