Wonderdrome wrote:[edited to add] ALSO: Thanks for the review. I appreciate the time and effort you put into it despite Wonderdrome not exactly being your cup of tea. We comickers work hard for attention to be paid to our stuff, and to make stuff worthy of attention.

If it's not a comic that is "weird for being weird", then I'd be interested to hear which underlying logic dictates this weirdness. I'm wondering just what is it that the guy is trying to do there.

Which is rather more polite than it deserves to be honest.

But honestly I think I'm giving too much credit here, from perusing the extra stuff on Wonderdrome I get the feeling it's creator is trying to simulate an acid trip without ever having experienced one (I haven't either but I know people who have - used to work with them).

Komiyan wrote:I completely didn't think about how it would read as a one-off book though, which was stupid of me. I guess that's one of those mistakes you find when you translate from web to print, doh. Another on the list of lessons learned.
Komiyan wrote:Ditto with Sid's 'abilities', basically he's okish at actual magic, but he prefers stage magic and that's what he's good at. His little problem manifests as shiny things ending up on him, for the most part. Again, I'll have to clarify this later, thanks for the warning that it didn't come across clearly enough.
Komiyan wrote:I'm glad that the lightness of it came across alright, I was aiming for an Indiana Jones feel, and from what a few readers have said, I seem to have managed to hit the spot I was going for. This couldn't make me happier
Komiyan wrote:With regards the orientation of the book, it's a trick I stole from comics like Sorcery 101, Octopus Pie, and Oglaf. Landscape fits the screen much better, the shelf less so, but since 99% of readers will be reading the web version, I thought I'd give it a shot!
Yeah, it's definitely something tricky to pull off.Komiyan wrote:Thanks again, it's always heartening to hear you've managed to put across most of what you wanted to say with a comic
