Webcomics Talk at Ann Arbor Public Library
The nice people at the Ann Arbor Public Library facilitate Webcomics Lab — a regular meet-up of webcartoonists. And they invited me to join their hangout last night, via Skype, to talk shop. The conversation was tremendous.
We talked about a lot of great subjects, such as:
• When do you know when you’ve found the “right” project to work on? (2:20)
• Is a daily update schedule still as important as it used to be? (10:50)
• How do you handle “touchy” subjects without offending people? (14:24)
• What about adult comics — is there a pushback? (16:02)
• There’s an element of cruelty in all humor (18:10)
• I tell a joke about a library (18:20)
• How did readers react to the transition from Greystone Inn to Evil Inc? (20:32)
• Don’t listen to some readers; only listen to all readers (20:15)
• How do you monetize a webcomic? (23:40)
• How do you build a webcomic Web site? (32:10)
• Getting better at lettering. (37:57)
