How to Make Webcomics
From 1985 to 1995, American cartoonist , Bill Watterson, created the popular syndicated comic strip called ‘Calvin and Hobbes’. Now for those of you not in the know, ‘Calvin and Hobbes’ was a really light and funny tale about a six year old boy and his pet stuffed tiger, whom both got themselves into jovial scrapes set within middle-town America. Since then, however, Bill has left his artistic mantel on the rafters so he can do his ‘own thing’, thus inadvertently opening the doors for my mate Patrick to continue Bill’s legacy with his web-comic, www.supersiblingscomics.com.
To use Patrick’s own words...
‘Super Siblings is a comic strip for geeks and their kids. It follows the adventures of an average family with kids that have extraordinary powers. Conrad uses his for good while his sister, Courtney, uses hers for bad. Neither one knows the other's secret identity so they have unwittingly become archenemies.’
Sound’s good, huh? And in some way reminds me of...
www.supersiblingscomics.com was first devised by Patrick in 2007, and since then, he updates his comic section every Monday, post comments on his integrated blog throughout the week, and on top of that, also has ties to Twitter: twitter.com/supersiblings and facebook:
facebook.com/supersiblings, too. In addition to all of this, Partrick provides an online shopping portal so that you can purchase his comic, join his ‘Fan-Club’, whilst at the same time giving away ‘freebies’ to boot.
Trust me when I say that this is a great web-comic – as it has that earnest and pith tone to it that is just captivating and congenial to read. In many ways, it reminds me of the old ‘Peanuts’ cartoon, except that www.supersiblingscomics.com has a more retroactive vibe running through it’s veins, giving it an earnest edge that is just really nice to exhume. So go on – give it a click – you won’t be disappointed that you did.
