This week's ComicLab!

Thursday, May 24, 2018 - 09:14 AM

For the cartoonists and comics lovers among us, I have something new and fun: A weekly podcast called ComicLab, with my friend and fellow cartoonist, Brad Guigar. It's half cartooning shop-talk, half pro tips, and half friendship. WE SQUEEZED IN THREE HALVES.

...have a listen below, or on iTunes, Stitcher, Libsyn, or anywhere podcasts can be heard! Or even on our dedicated Patreon page:!

Today on ComicLab, Dave Kellett and Brad Guigar take a full one-eighty on Bonjoro. After trashing it last episode, they're ready to sing its praises as a game-changer in crowdfunding and web publishing. Find out what caused this massive reconsideration. THEN the guys take an audio question from a Patreon backer who wants to know how to address concerns from readers who find a story hard to follow. And FINALLY, another backer asks how much effort should be put into making sure your idea hasn't been done before.

BUT FIRST... Whether it's Flash vs Reverse Flash or Green Lantern vs Sinestro, why do supervillains always have to be the exact opposite of their corresponding superheroes? Is it hack writing or is there something deeper going on?
