Spent some time redesigning the Cast page, and added Claustria’s niece, Solstice. Check it out! http://www.zombieboycomics.com/the-cast-2/
Ok, it’s like this. I’ve been drawing this strip for almost a year now and I’d like some feedback. If you like what I’m doing, please send me a comment. It’s the only compensation that I get from all the work I put into this. And I know you’re out there, I can see you in my stats! Please drop me a line, it would greatly appreciated.
Sometimes you come up with a great idea for a gag, only to find out later that someone else already came up with it. It happens every now and then and it can be a real drag.
Anyone who makes their own comic strip can feel me on this.
It especially stung me recently when I was watching a ridiculous television commercial for a product that I couldn’t care less about, and right at the end, there it was, a funny situation that I wanted to use in a strip that I had already laid out. I know that I couldn’t have seen this before, because I usually avoid commercials like the plague (thank God for the mute button), it was just a weird fluke.
Ok, so it’s not exactly like what I came up with, but it’s oh so close. So I angst about it. People are going to think I stole this idea, that I’m a plagiarizer.
I started thinking about it, and now I have a theory. All ideas and thoughts seep out of the world’s consciousness and drift into an ocean of collective ideas. Sometimes when we come up with something, we take a dip into that great big body of thought.
So I’ve been rethinking my fears about this problem and decided What the Heck? I genuinely came up with it, and I know it wasn’t because I had seen it before, so I’m going to own it. That’s right. And if anyone wants to make a big deal about it, go ahead. I’ve got a clear conscience.
Make sure you visit Kevin Preece’s zombie-friendly website, www.zombieinfo.com, for the Zombieking’s interview with me and Zombie Boy Comics! It’s online now!
Zombieking demonstrates his unique approach to interviewing in this illustration I created for the feature.
You may have noticed a few subtle changes to the website. I had some cosmetic changes made by JJ Sandee (aka Nismorack), a gentleman and genius. JJ has an incredible knowledge of building and designing websites. Check out his website here. Also, he creates his own webcomic five times a week, No Tie Zone, you can see it here. Thanks, JJ!
