Hi, I'm new to these forums (obviously), and am looking for some critique on my webcomic. Honestly, I was originally coming here to hawk my comic, but after looking around a bit, it looks like this could be a much more valuable resource, in that people are willing to give real criticism.
-It's a longform comic, told in scenes, rather than pages, as we didn't want our pacing dictated by needing a "punch" on each page, though that doesn't mean they're without any.
-It's a science fiction piece, set in the post-post-apocalypse (as we like to call it): essentially, this is during the second phase of rebuilding civilization after WW#(you get the idea), where there are a lot of things that are the same and different (we're interested in exploring this more, as we have space for it in diegetic world materials.
What I'm looking for, in terms of criticism:
-What I can do to the images to improve them? Especially, if it's the smaller tweaks (given that I've done about 160 pages, saying "stark black and white would work better" may be honest, but not all that helpful, while "you should use a different layer type for your colors" would be frustrating, but helpful), especially if you can reference examples from others' work of anything less obvious
-Suggestions with layout are appreciated: this is something I can
change, with some work, and an area where I feel less confident.
-Suggestions with pacing or the website… this obviously requires going to site and reading more of the comic, so, here's the link
, if you want to go that extra mile.
-Anything else (other criticism and, if deserving, praise, is always appreciated)
Thanks in advance, and now for some samples (in chronological order):
