One of my mindsets when I started making this comic was that, "I'll generate local hype through internet buzz," and by this, I mean, "I'm going to develop a comic for my school paper, but I totally don't want it to suck, so I'm going to make sure it's good before I set us up the bomb
har har har har!"
Here are my questions that I want to address with my comic:
· What's a good title?
I like using the Somewhere I Belong
title, because it's a Linkin Park song I thoroughly enjoy.
However, I'm sure there will be a more awesome name that I would want to use should my comic successfully score an appearance on the Daily Cougar.
Here are the titles that currently run through my mind:
Chadwick Wellingsworth Saves The Universe
Know The Ledge
Archibald Baddington Conquers The World
Flirtations of the Three Kingdoms
Spraypaint & Inkpens
Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Island
Somewhere I Belong
Oh You Mad Cause I'm Stylin' On You?
· Is it better than the competition?
Namely, Getting to Know the Tulip
. No disrespect to the artists, but I overhear so many people cringing at their comics for all the wrong reasons.
On the brightside, when people cringe at my comic, it will be intentional
· What can appeal to the general audience?
Obviously, things like obscure hip-hop and video game references will fly over people's heads, and that's not ballin'.
What works, and what won't? This is extremely critical, especially for the Dead Poets Society
tribute that I plan to put out. "O Captain, My Captain" is a setup for comedic gold
· What can make the transfer from unrestrained internet freedom to politically correct public papers?
I'm talking about my favorite emo, Emo-Man.
I don't think I can get away with the tremendous amount of neck-hanging
he does if my comic hits a university paper.
