If I create a castle-ish web comic, would you read it?

Postby deathdog1 » Thu Feb 19, 2009 3:21 am

I'm moving away from brickfilming because it takes too much time and bother, so I'm considering creating a webcomic around the characters in the Glomshire movies . I'd like finish the story I've started in the films (Can't leave the castle in danger, can I?), but I'm just curious as to how many folks around here would be interested in seeing something like that.
Anyway, it would likely be a weekly or bi-weekly series. If I do it, I'll post a link on this message board to get the ball rolling.
Let me know what you think.

Short answer: No.

Long Answer: if the question was, "If i create an interesting and funny web comic..." then the answer becomes yes, I'd give it a try.

Of course it will have the disadvantage of following the now-defunct but grossly hilarious Life in Plastic Pants.

See for yourself. The link's in my sig. If it doesn't live up to your expectations, fine. I can accept that. What I cannot accept are pork chops without applesauce!

I'd suggest not forcing yourself to make a certain number per week... these things are hard enough to do, much less to do with a quota to meet (unless it's your job :) )

But yes, I'd probably read it (and have read some of it) - I live for LEGO Castle stories. 8)

OK, now that I have actually read the first few strips...

I had a few LOL moments ("Lets do the Time Warp again" was my favorite) and generally was amused by the strips. While still getting established the series looks promising with nice use of "illustrations". It is clear you have developed a good "eye" for composition from your brickfilms. There is also a good balance between "set-up", character development and plot. Keep the gag-to-plot ratio about the same and you will have a winning formula! :lol:

Oh yeah, I should mention I am a big fan of Order of the Stick and this strip has a similar feel.
