So just as I go to post today’s comic my internet goes out. Thank Carl Sagan for the tethering on my iPhone.
Before I get into the usual ramble about today’s strip I wanna thank Scott from Nerf This again for the plug and welcome all the people that have come by to check out my comic, been getting tons of great feedback and awesome comments. I’m trying to get to them all, so don’t you worry.
So what’s the craziest ad you’ve seen online? I swear I saw some pretty bad and/or crazy ads. It’s amazing what people will put in their ads, but that’s a whole other comic…
So yeah recently I’ve been looking into a lot of cool resources for webcomic creators. A lot of stuff has changed in the webcomics landscape in the past 7 years since I was apart of it with CSI:Moberts (I just did a Google search for it and I’m seriously disgusted to find a guest comic I did ages ago, I was not funny back then) It’s nice to see how open this community is. Especially to a relatively new guy like me. So yeah it’s been a fun learning experience. Especially since this comic started as a facebook thing meant for my friends before I decided to see if strangers would like it. I’m glad people seem to responding positively to it.
I stop mention it but I do have a twitter account and a deviant art account and like I mentioned before there’s a comment section. I’m headed out to a cottage this weekend so I’m unsure how my internet connection will be. It might be nice to get away from the internet for a period of time. Then again last time i left the server my site was on gets DDOS attacked.
Well till monday!
I also dropped in via the link from Nerf This (or was it Motokool? I forget). Just wanted to say I love the comics, great fun to read!
Keep it up!
That last panel it reminds me so much of a collage I did back in high school… Except it was Tim Curry’s head…. I need to go sleep now and hope that doesn’t make an appearance in the various dream sets. Lovin your comic!
You had me at the tits.
the best banner ads are the obnoxious evony ones – start your journey, come play now, my lord! (see: http://thesocietypages.org/socimages/2009/07/14/evolution-of-evony-video-game-ads/)
sex always sells… always…
I saw an ad that pulled a page from the Evony book and just asked “Are you 18+ enough to play?” The best part was that I had played the game before seeing that ad, and it was a side-scrolling space shooter, with nothing even remotely suggestive in the entire game.
Also got to this webcomic from Nerf This. Now I have an added favourite!
Your banner on inkoutbreak definitely needs more tits in it…. you know to really get some exposure….
bah dum tsh! but yeah I should update that banner… it could use a splash of colour.
I also came from nerf this. Just archive binged your site and its amazing!
I was directed here by Nerf This yesterday, and I have to say, you’ve certainly made an impression on me. You just gained +1 fan. I read the entire archive you had yesterday and made it a point to favorite this. Lovin’ it!
Somehow I feel that while breasts are a definite “Click Me” sign, the jaw scruff about an inch higher is a “DO NOT WANT” sign.
aww… no love for the bearded ladiez….
Maybe someone else is into that. Personally, I don’t even particularly care for bearded clams. Hair is NOT my cup o’ tea.
classic arg… Love it. funny, boobs seem to be a common theme in ads, I guess it works. I struggle with the same thing myself.
good luck out there
I think ads are hard to make whether your comic has characters or not. You never know what’ll catch a potential reader’s eye.
I swear I’ve never paid attention to so many ads until I started a webcomic… I’m almost dreading the plunge into starting Project Wonderful.
It’s like gambling, with real money, with… internet people. *shudder*
best thing to do on project wonderful is to find sites that have no cost to post the ads and test them out. you can only post for 2 days but it’s nice to get some traffic.
Giant breasts with a beard is an attention grabber, *shudder* but I particularly like the pug + big eyes (toilet genie) + wondermark-esque hunched figure + XKCD stickman. It is obvious you read others’ comics, but yours has a unique flavour. Well done and reading the archive made me LOL a couple times (who doesn’t love ass-faces).
*note* If I misinterpreted some of the depictions, forgive me internet trolls. My bones are neither tasty nor conducive to baking.
yeah I wanted to stuff that last panel with more content but I was bumping against my 1 hour limit.
Puppy… A puppy?! Man you know me too well! Must… Read… More…
