I finally got my shipment of a new comic that I'm distributing pretty much exclusively through my website and at cons. Here's my obligatory blurb about the story:

THIS 116 PAGE GRAPHIC NOVEL TELLS THE TALE OF HACKER AND PHONE PHREAK KEVIN “BOINGTHUMP” PHENICLE, AS HE BEGINS HIS FASCINATING CAREER WITH THE EASIEST ACCESSIBLE COMPUTER OF THE 1970S: THE PHONE SYSTEM. KEVIN’S UNQUENCHABLE THIRST FOR KNOWLEDGE LEADS HIM DOWN A DARK AND CRIMINAL PATH OF CHEATING, CONNING, AND TRESPASSING IN ORDER TO GAIN DIRECT ACCESS TO THE INFORMATION HE SO OBSESSIVELY DESIRES.


Here are a few random pages but I have more at the site. I don't wanna make this thread a nightmare for people with 56k modems.

The book contains a bunch of references and shout-outs to geek culture that I don't think the average person may get, but something tells me that I'm in a hip place right here.

    You're doing something that rhymes with "Height Soaring", can you guess what it is?

    Your cover is boring... maybe if you played more with the type a bit, had more variation instead of the same typeface. Also, a more interesting cover drawing to catch ppls attention. Also, is your panel layout always this predictable?

    That's all the critique I have... because this is, after all, a forum for critiquing, not showcasing.

    The description under our forum title says "Discuss art and share your work".
    Is it any wonder that most topics by new users are indeed made for one of those two reasons?
    It should really be changed to "post your art to receive critique/help/input/whatever".

    Anyway, I dig the inking on those pages, very clean.
