Mailbag: To Origin or not to Origin?
Q: When starting a new strip. Would it be better to start with already established characters and show the origin in flashbacks or a later story or would you at first show how the characters meet and the sort of who, what, why, when and how of the main setting and character’s origins at the outset.
An example would be the Incredible Hulk movie to, say, the Captain America or the Iron Man movie. The former started out with him already the Hulk and everything established, the latter showed the origins of the character and the setting.
I chose those examples over Superman or Spider-Man because those origins were less known to the non-comic reading audience and I see the same thing for the new webcomic, the origin wouldn’t be known to the intended audience.
