What do you think about the up and coming trend of motion comics? DO you think it will last or is it something that will be looked back on in a few years in a "WTF were we thinking" kind of way? And if you think they last, what series would you like to see become motion comics?
At your level, how do assignments usually work? Like, what goes into the process of pitching something beyond writing the pitch?
I hope this doesn't offend, but I thought it was pretty funny. An excellent issue, by the way.
Dammit, did I kill the Q&A by bringing up sres topic helath carrz?
and horror comics have over horror film what any comics have over film, yknow? they're each discrete, distinct media with discrete, distinct techniques to evoke story, mood, and provoke effect.
It's best not to get me started on comics as a rhythmic--as opposed to a literary--medium. I tend to judge a page of comics by how the pictures sound, and I'm very aware of what a weird sentence that is. This isn't synesthesia. I just sort of hear panels and pages in my head as if I were reading a musical score. When the rhythm is off, the page doesn't work. When it's particularly good, the work comes to life in a way that's hard to communicate. Conversations with a number of other cartoonists lead me to believe this is a fairly common experience.
I saw Warren and Paul Pope on twitter casually mentioning what it would be like to have the freedom to create a comic unhindered by any fixed format. Would you ever like to do something like that if you had the time and/or artist crazy enough to draw it? Like the comics version of a self-indulgent guitar solo. Conversations and/or fight scenes going on for as many pages as you want. Something like that.
ALSO: Any desire to try a webcomic like Freak Angels in the future?
These X-Men folks are HARD to get a grip of, you know?
does anything Steve says here resonate with you? (And again, I'd love to hear from Fabio, Warren, KellySue, David, or anyone else who's working on comics.)
