GNP 8 Hour Comic Kickoff!

On Saturday, October 3rd, nine brave students journeyed back to the school they sought all week to escape. Equipped with only their pens, pencils, and as much fortitude as they could muster, the students embarked upon what would forever be known as the 8 HOUR COMIC KICKOFF!  (more…)

Introducing Making Comics 3.0

Making Comics Worldwide is proud to announce the launch of Making Comics 3.0! Our new, updated website allows users and creators to more fluidly navigate our expansive resources. In addition, we’ve begun collecting articles and tutorials from websites all across the internet, cataloging them, and providing users with direct links to websites in an effort to expand the making comics community. We’ve also opened up volunteer opportunities to the community to help make our site the most effective it can be.

Upgrades include:

  • Integration of a comprehensive crowdsourcing library aimed at cataloging all comic-making educational resources on the web.
  • Underdog Community merge including articles, forums, and more.
  • All features designated home pages (Talking Comics, Gutter Talk Pod, Underdogs, etc.)
  • Comprehensive outline of our plans as a nonprofit.
  • Workflow for multiple levels of volunteer input.

With the relaunch of the website, Making Comics Worldwide has officially merged with their sister site, The Underdog Community (a.k.a. Webcomic Underdogs). This merger grants access to an assortment of resources –  lively web forums, active Facebook groups, and twitter conversations – that were previously just outside the reach of the small staff at Making Comics Worldwide. With these additions, the Making Comics Worldwide community grows by the thousands (literally), making our website the largest source of free, creator-based content in the world.

We need your help

One of our bold new goals on the new is creating a crowdsourced library of ALL of the existing, and emerging, comic resources on the web. We are definitely going to need help doing this. During this initial site launch it would be amazing if we could have some of the Underdogs go through the process of submitting links to our library.

D.I.Y. Comics: Cutting Out The Middle Man

[Tweet “…comics are about story, art, and innovation.”]

When I committed to creating a comic, I knew that publishing with one of the big companies anytime soon was not a reality. I was introduced to web comics as a serious avenue at Comic Con New Orleans 2010. I’ve since created two web comics. Comics have been in my life as long as I can remember. For me, comics are about story, art, and innovation. I rarely bought for the sake of collecting. Coming to terms with that, I had no problem with the web comic medium.
