General / What to read after 9 years away?
« on: 23 September, 2019, 12:04:27 PM »
I fell away from reading the prog around 2010. Kept buying weekly until I realised I had a two year backlog!

Last Dredd storyline I can definitely remember is Tour of Duty, but I think I read a bit further than that.

I'd like to start reading the prog weekly again, but would like to catch up on some of the stuff I missed in between.

Will the Day of Chaos, Trifecta and Dark Justice collections catch me up with the majority of important events?

Are there any other Dredd stories that you would recommend I'd track down either for continuity or just for being great stories? (Trades ideally or digital back issues maybe, depending on how much that would cost).

Also, what are some of the popular new non-dredd series that I've missed out on? Any in that period that are screaming to be collected but only available in back issues?

Thank you!

I'm hoping there'll be more.

(apologies if this has already been posted. I did google to check)

Hi,

I recently completed my first short comic and have just put it up online.

It's a bit abstract :)

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Books & Comics / The Private Eye - Brian K Vaughan, Marcos Martin

Pay-what-you-want digital download (you can pay zero, they suggest 99c)

No plans for print collection

Really enjoyed this.  Well worth a quid.  It's done in landscape format but seems to be more dense than the 2 screens = 1 page pacing a lot of similar webcomics seem to be using.

Download the entire collection of Magical Game Time comics in one massive 139 page PDF for whatever you’re willing to pay! This PDF also includes unfinished comics, sketches, character drawings and pretty much every video game related comic that I’ve done to date.

Note: PDFs don’t play animated gifs—so these comics are motionless!

All of the comics in this collection are larger than what you get online and formatted to look beautiful on an iPad or other tablet device.

BUY IT HERE! ($1 Min.)

Every purchase helps…

Earlier this week, I experienced a pretty sizable financial setback when my old computer dropped dead on me out of the blue. I lost some files (including some of the most recent comics), some time, and most of all some cold hard cash.

By purchasing this PDF, you’re not only getting something cool to read but also helping me get right back to doing what I love doing…making comics!

Which reminds me! I also have a store!

Thanks!

- Zac

His animated gif comics are really great - and they do lose something when flattened for PDF - but if you pay under a quid (one dollar) or more he can get a new PC and get back to making more and posting them online for free.

Remember that scary Korean webcomic that everyone was passing around about a year ago?

Webcomics are huge in Korea, and now a new site, Comic Panda, has launched that brings some elements of the Korean model to the United States. While it offers free hosting for any webcomics creator, the site is particularly looking for episodic stories that can be read in big chunks in a vertical-scrolling format, like that scary comic. This is a little different from the standard webcomics model here, with its daily or thrice-weekly single-page updates.

I poked around the site a bit and found the vertical-scrolling format is pretty easy to read; I had previously encountered it on the Korean-owned site NetComics, and of course Dash Shaw uses it in Bodyworld. Still, looking at the site raised some questions for me, and fortunately Comic Panda’s Chris Klein was ready with some answers.

This looks really interesting.

I've only had a quick browse of the site and none of the strips have really caught my interest, but I find the scrolling format is a really nice way to read comics on the ipad or pc.

ComicPanda's approach of free-for-everyone, creator-owned hosting alongside developed content is commendable.  I'd love to see this venture do well.

For some great comics in scrolling format have a look at
Bodyworld (as mentioned in the article) http://www.dashshaw.com/prelude.html
and Study Group Comics http://studygroupcomics.com/main/

And check out this article that looks at the effect of adapting "Secret Voice" from print to scrolling format.

Off Topic / Anyone fluent in Spanish?
« on: 11 July, 2011, 12:11:21 PM »
Hi everyone,

I'm grasping at straws here, but have left this quite late and am looking for help.

I want to submit my short film to Alcine
http://www.alcine.org/inscripcion/europeanshortfilm.php?idioma=2

But I need to include Spanish subtitiles.

I've tried google translate, but on translating back the results were unusable (if hilarious).

I would massively appreciate it if anyone here, fluent in Spanish, could help.

(it's less than 300 words)


Thanks

Brian

Creative Common / Ian Rankin talks Dark Entries

He says he writes an A4 page per panel.  I'm guessing he read an Alan Moore script before any of Wagner's.

I'm sure John Wagner would have been fine with "The man walked into the pub" :D
