Minicomic Mondays

I’ve created a new category for posts to this site called, creatively, “Minicomics”. I’m aiming to start working my way through the backlog of minis I’ve got sitting around, discussing at least one every Monday. (We’ll see how long that lasts.)

While going through boxes preparing for this project, I was reminded again of how many talented people have wandered into comics and wandered out again. I found a couple of lovely pieces by artists with no contact information attached, and web searching only turned up reviews and pictures of art from more than four years ago.

Alternately, several of the items I have as minicomics are now webcomics, and good for them — that’s a way to make sure more people see your work more easily. I still like the printed items, though.

    Great addition to the site, Johanna, can’t wait to see what you cover in this category. Have you read Corinne Mucha’s stuff? It’s available at USS Catastrophe and is very good stuff…

    I haven’t… I’m trying to accomplish two things here: get caught up on the backlog, and see what people send me as a result. :)

    Thanks for the good wishes!

    I´ve gotta say, as much as I love that people continue to publish their comics on the web, as much as I try to keep up (and it´s not that hard, sitting in front of the computer all day long), I just can´t be bothered more often than not.

    Book collections of web-comics however, and I´m so there.

    If this is the way it will be, serialization on the web + book collection later on, I´m totally cool with that.

    There’s a weird kind of cycle where if I get something for free, it’s easier to ignore it or downplay it, but something that exists as a paper object seems to have more value.

    I haven’t thought this through completely, so forgive me for rambling.

    I think some of it relates to the fact that with comics, I want to be in control when and where I read them. It´s the same reason why I don´t buy floppies anymore. Complete stories, instead of trying to keep up with some publication schedule.

    Also, I noticed in the world of music reviews, most reviewers tend to be far too lenient with the stuff they review. That´s because there is a difference in how I feel about a work, if I have to pay for it. With everything I review (if I got it for free), the question is, would I have bought it?
