Wow that really sucks for him.
I didn’t see it at first, but now the slow build in the early chapters introducing Andy’s friends and his relationship with Yumi makes this scene so much more powerful. Because we know everything he left behind, we can feel his panic so much more strongly at the thought of losing it.
YES. I can’t tell you how frustrating it is how so many people think my stories are directionless or random after only reading a couple chapter or watching 10 minutes. My stories are actually very meticulously crafted and everything’s in there for a reason. Your comment made my day, Dave.
Thanks Derek! Good storytelling is really important, whatever your medium. I’m so pleased to read a webcomic that shows such care in its construction- it’s pretty rare.
I can appreciate your frustration if people only read or watch a small amount of the story. Mythomania 1-9, if seen as a pilot for a longer series (as opposed it a series in itself), lays the seeds for some first rate drama. The comedy there is a short term solution to keep each individual episode engaging, but it will be the emotional core and the drama that will sustain the longer narrative.
Anyway, please stick with it!
@ Dave: Wow. This is more or less what I wanted to say for a long time. Thank you.
It’s the webcomic curse. No one reads one page of a book book and then reams out the author for being utter shit. But they do with webcomics, especially ones that aren’t joke-a-day.
Dave’s comment is the best!
Well, it think “judging a book by its cover” have some evolutionary basis
to it. As the amount of books are increasing in amount and people are
having less time to read them, they often predetermine the quality of
the book through those first few pages.
Therefore, having a good first impression and getting the readers/audiences to take interest immediately is crucial. That’s not
to say to skim on the quality of the rest of the story.
Comic book series of your style keeps the pace at an even and
manageable level in order to develop a better story, creating a
smaller, but more dedicated audience. Your style of comic book
writing is still just as good as any other, so keep at it.
Allow the rest of us to expand the audience of your books by
“enthusiastically” recommend it to our many friends and family……….
…..and perhaps a couple of strangers as well. I mean, why not?
Nothing like a douchebag to spice up the worst news one could possibly get.
Look at Dash in the last panel – what’s on her mind?
I figured this won’t go so well. But that’s good, cause now he’ll have to work together with Mo. I have to know what he looks like!
Methinks that a certain vertacle challenged person might have switched the contracts around on him…
In a way, this kind of is an Illustration major’s wish. Assuming he lets him draw in his cell, he could hypothetically just sit and draw and entertain people every day and get paid massively but not have to worry about cooking, cleaning, or paying bills.
Guess you gotta be careful what you wish for.
What is that guy’s problem?!
I have no idea, Brian. I’m not a web guru, I’m afraid. And so far I haven’t really had any complaints other than it the design was too wide for people with older computers.
