The comics or the cartoonists? Because I'm cool with either, though one would be a lot more fun.


We should gather both up into a big pile and create a Keenbonfire.

That would be a good name for review site made by keenspacers.

:oops: My first attempt well... ten months of being in and out of the hospitle and not being able to hold my hand steady enough for anything caused the downfall of Promise's Kiss.

TFTF isn't going down so easily, I doubt the characters would let me.

"setting you on fire, so you don't have to"
You are the Non. You must go now, and never return."

"1.Scan in high res 2.tweak with curves,levels or something to clean up the scan (or use channel mixer to remove blue pencil lines) 3.Add colour using a layer set to multiply. 4.Add wordbubbles and text as vector shapes. 5. Merge all layers. 6.resize to the web size. 7. Export/Save for Web" that's all I know about webcomicking.

I prefer "Just bring the marshmallows"
Faith is what credulity becomes when it finally achieves escape velocity from the constraints of terrestrial discourse- reasonableness, internal coherence, civility, and candor. Thus, the men who commited the atrocities of September 11 were neither cowards nor lunatics of any sort, but Men of Faith- perfect faith- and this, it must finally be acknowleged, is a terrible thing to be.

Both are good, but I think I like the "Setting you on fire, so you don't have to" the best. It betrays a certain stingyness in the reviewers.

Going back on topic for a second. I am one of those artists who abandoned his comic. From my experience most of these comics that get abandoned is because the artist hasn't planned the comic properly. They had no idea where to go with the comic, they may of also expected everyone to flock to their comic within a couple pages.
When I started back in 2000 I can admit I started my comic more to try to get fame; obviously that didn't work out. Now with this comic I'm doing now I'm just having fun with it and improving myself and go figures now people actually like it.
