I like webcomics. You like webcomics. Lots of people read webcomics and lots of people try to make webcomics.
I originally thought about making a comic called "You're a Nerd" and it would have been about nerd stuff and random nerdy things that I see happen. Then I got the idea of making some of the strips about the world of webcomics, which led me to just focus on the webcomic aspect, but still include a lot of the nerd-culturey stuff too. I thought it would be neat if there was a tome in the vein of "Understanding Comics" by Scott Mcloud, only geared for Webcomics and by Adam Gouveia. I could call it "Understanding Webcomics", hey that would be original! It would be B&W, and inked in a clean visual style just like the original book, only more zany and perhaps vulgar to better match the strange world of webcomics. A cartoony version of myself would walk the reader through all aspects of the medium. I'd like to include other popular webcomic characters,
with their authors permission of course, and maybe just have popular authors show up within the comic themselves.
I have begun mapping out ideas, and the geneal structure for the book. Since I have nothing else to post right now art wise, I'll just slap some of my scribblings for now. Since it's about Webcomics, I'd like this series to take the form of a page a week webcomic. Though, I'd like to get quite a few pages into it, before I start releasing anything on the internet. Once the whole thing is done, I'd ultimately like to bet a bound book version of the whole thing but since that is very far off there's no point in worrying about that yet.
Anyways I'm starting this thread now as a means for people to bounce ideas around, and for a general consensus on whether this is a worthwhile idea for a project. Is it a stupid idea, am I stupid? Has it been done before? Let me know!
I read some webcomics, but not a ton of them, and consider myself to be kind of uninformed when it comes to the best webcomics, so if people could post some of their top 10 webcomics and why you like them, maybe which comics you think are under the radar and under appreciated too, that would prob be very helpful. Also any general things that you think should be included in a series like this would also be helpful. Thanks in advance.
My handwriting is messy but the foundation is all mostly here I think.
