It was certainly readable enough, just some of the detail was lost

Next time I'll either use a thinner line at the same scale or the same line at a larger scale and see what the results are like. I need to tidy up my linking a bit as well.

The next strip I have out for FQP is in Dogbreath and was digitally inked, it has a smoother look but digital has always ended up as a bit of a rabbit hole for me. it starts fine but before long I end up working to a massively wasteful and over elaborate process.

what I assume is a Justice Department cartoon aimed at getting kids to grass people up to Judge Pal.

Judge Fudge and his Pals is indeed an in-universe cartoon show, as mentioned in one line in the middle of a text article in the 1989 Judge Dredd Annual.

I suspect that probably counts as the most obscure character from the canon to ever appear within the pages of Zarjaz.

I suspect that probably counts as the most obscure character from the canon to ever appear within the pages of Zarjaz so far...

FTFY...

The ComicHaus Blog- Dave Evans interview... Ooh, look what I've found.

Does anyone else here use ComicHaus? I thought there would be a thread for it but I can't find one...

David- great to hear. The Comichaus app is pretty good in my opinion- the display is clear and the support team have always responded to my wittering requests within minutes. They also pay every quarter regardless of the value of your shares. None of this '$100.00' target malarkey.

I'd be wary of hosting comics that are actually in print, though.

Pete who runs it seems like a dude and they're always very attentive when responding to questions.

I put all the Hallowscreams on Comichaus but they're no getting much love. I've 11 titles on there in total but not had more than 50 views for them all. Got a teeny-tiny payment last month but would love to know if anyone's actually made any 'serious' cash out of putting their products on.

Agree with your print comment Dave. I've seen some folk add their brand new comics straight to the app but that just seems like a sure-fire way to cannibalize print sales.

Ghastly- Think it is a great resource for older works and I agree with you on the number of views.

I'm not going to give numbers away but I'd be a lot happier if they were higher.

I see this as a companion to Comicsy- whereas if a reader wants to take a punt and see if they like a book- use Comichaus as you can consume all you like there for a single price, but if you want a top quality pdf of the book that you can take with you and read in whatever way you like- the comicsy downloads are perfect for that.

I plan on keeping the Comichaus a couple of issues behind.

And yeah, loads of respect for Pete for listening and actually putting things into play that I've asked for.
