1) I'm dissapointed with half of you. Godlike, Jaeger Rising, and Vendetta are fine, but the rest of you don't seem to understand that the members of this dropdown are expected to be drawing FIGHT SCENES, not stories ABOUT fighters. And War World hasn't updated in 3 months. It's not that you can't have plot and dialogue, but if you aren't going to draw some occasional fights, what's the point of being in this dropdown?


There's such a thing as pacing. When you do non-stop action, you get garbage like Van Helsing. I think many people here know better how to tell a story with fights than Stephen Sommers. It's this kind of attitude that I assumed would be had that has disuaded me from joining. My comic has fights, some of them long-drawn out, some not, but even a quick spurt in a dialogue-oriented section would meet your criteria. But I don't want to have to insert unnecessary action to appease the dropdown. It'll come when it comes. A couple weeks ago I had a quick spurt fight, and another a month or so earlier. Before that there was a mass of fighting. In January I'm going to have a long action sequence with a load of fighting that'll probably last over a month and a half.

But I shouldn't have to draw that back simply because the space between big fights is over four months' time. Give people a chance.

I love fight scenes. I just think they're beautiful. That's why I started my comic as a hobby (because, I assure you, it hasn't brought me fame or fortune). The point of the dropdown is to let fans that like webcomics with fight scenes readily identify other webcomics that cater to that interest, not to give people who agree to put in the minimal extra scene an extra hit a month.

Some of the webcomics on this list only have 1 real fight scene, months ago. Others have just apparently stopped updating altogether. I'd just like some confirmation along the lines of "yeah, I'm still alive, and they'll be another fight eventually."

And I still need those .gifs from the rest of you

Updates are going to be sporadic for a while while my wife and I get ready to put our house on the market and look for a somewhat larger place.

The plan with Cold Servings is to run it in "issues" of about 20 pages each. I expect, on average, 1-2 fight scenes per "issue."

One of the things I work very hard at is keeping everything realistic, especially the fight scenes.

My "normal" (as opposed to current) update schedule is once a week which I hope to push to twice a week if I can get my pencilling time down.

That sounds pretty reasonable.

I'd consider joining, but I can't make .gifs. Good luck with the dropdown though.

All right! We are added here at Chaotic Comics! Link Below.

Most importantly, I wanted to tell all who visit that the comics that apply to this dropdown start at the beginning, or you can click here below.
http://chaoticcomics.comicgen.com/d/20050220.html

also note that I am changing the file types for the first 5 comics to jpeg. I noticed they were .png, and over 1.5mb in size. Yeah, I know, I'm slow.

EDIT: Hang on, it's spazzing out on us.
EDIT2: Okay, got it working now. Note: If you replace old comics, make sure to delete the old ones in /comics, then put the new ones in workspace/comics then refresh at the control panel. Otherwise it won't work.

On my site right now is part 2 of "How Not To Draw a Fight Scene." The series might be relevant to some of the dropdown members.

I am not quite sure. My comic is (as of now) 5 pages. There are already a lot of extreme violence shots. If you care to look at what's present already:

Fight scenes will be very prominent. I will likely have longer ones sometime in the next week for that matter. I will come back with longer scenes if necessary.
