Webcomics I read
by Jay042

While I have quite a number of  subscriptions on Comic Fury, there are quite a few comics out there on the web I go out of my way to read regularly:


The Bare Pit  by Stephen Crowley (currently on hiatus) it's just your basic sitcom set at a nudist colony. I've always been amazed he could come up with as many fun and intersting ideas for his series, which has lasted for over ten years. No surprise there is lots of nudity.

Rich's Comixblog by Rich Morris (updates sporradically) Rich is a big fan of Doctor Who, and his Comixblog (which is really just a side project for his regular comic Yet Another Fantasy Gamer Comic) is most noted for his Doctor Who Fan Comics. His magnum opus, The Ten Doctors , brings together every  Doctor from William Hartnell to David Tennant, and just about every Companion that's ever existed in a 247 page graphic novel spanning all of time and space.

The Non-Adventures of Wonderella by Justin Pierce (updates on Saturdays) Wonderella would be one of the world's greatest superheroes, if she could be bothered to actually, you know, be heroic on occasion.

Darwin Carmichael is Going To Hell by Sophie Goldstien and Jenn Jordan (updates on Tuesdays) After he accidentally caused the future Dali Lama to suffer sever brain damage, Darwin has a massive debt of bad karma to work off or else he's destined for damnation.  It's a rather quirky little comic with some fun and cute art. 

Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan by Reinder Dijkhuis (on hiatus) a long running fantasy series about a group of outlaws. It started out as a humorous series, but has become more serio-comical as the years go by. While Reinder is technically not producing new pages, he has been going back and upddating the art on some of his earlier works. There is occasional nudity.









Fun with site trackers!
by Jay042

To supplement the information the ComicFury stats page provides, I added a site tracker from Extreme Tracking. That's the little icon at the very bottom of the page, and it provides a bit more specific information on  where all the readers have come from. I had it up since ysesterday's update, and already it's provided some interesting information.

It turns out my listing on the Belfry comics list has sent a lot of traffic this way, almost as much as Comicfury so far.  What I really didn't expect to find is that my comic on the links list for a blog called A Natrurists Journey. I wouldn't categorize my comic as natruist, but I'm quite happy  for the shout out.


Prep for NaNoMangO
by Jay042

Next month is NaNoMangO, the artistic equivalent of NaNoWriMo. I'm planning on participating, though I'll working on a different project than Kaza.  Which means I want to get a few more pages done and in the queue before June. I have the first two weeks covered, but that still leaves three more pages to get done in the next nine days.

If I'm fretting over three pages in nine days, who will I get a page a day done? Well I'm doing the Kaza pages on 11"X17" (A3) sized paper, and I'm coloring and lettering the art in photoshop, which factors a lot more time into the creation process. For the NaNo, I'll be doing doing the art on 8.5"x 11" (A4). I'll be coloring with markers on lettering in situ. Plus I'm planning on doing the art in a slightly broader, more cartoonish style with a lot heavier inking than I do on Kaza. Hopefully this will allow me to work fast enough to complete a page a day, but the big issue will be keeping up the pace for a whole month.

I'll be setting up a seperate comic site for the story, so you can be on the look out for than in July.


Next Update: April 28th
by Jay042

Just a heads up that I'm starting my next story this Thursday, and I'll have weekly updates for it.

Guess the Bad Guy!
by Jay042

I have the first page of the next  Kaza's Mate Gwenna story penciled. I had a couple false starts with it, but now I'm set on the story.

Though I kept saying I was going to write out this story before I started it, I once again fell into my habit of improvising. I'll try and write out the next couple pages at least, and make certain I have a firm direction I want to go with this.

I've certainly turned up the crack factor on this one! No spoilers, but I'm going for some sci-fi this time around. I'm using one of the most infamous sci-fi villains ever created. He's instantaneously recognizable, but I'm not worried about potential copyright claims.

It still might be a while before I post anything, I want to get a few pages ahead and set a regular posting schedule.
