A special article this week over at SlugLady's Sketch-log!: Why I love Comics, a tribute to (almost) everything I love about comics (It's a really long list...).
A few weeks ago I’ve was going through a bit rough state. Combination of creative block, my health (again) and just really not nice things going on. But it was all the sheer amount of stupid and jack-assery going on in the comic industry lately was the camel that broke the straw's back... you heard me.
Oh, don’t worry, I’m feeling better now. That’s why over dramatic comic is over dramatic. But, I was emotionally at the point where I wasn't sure if I wanted to draw comics anymore.
And then I picked up Animal man 7, The amazing Spider man 681, Glory 1, Venom 13.2 and the preview book for Avengers vs x-men, found out that X-23 is getting one more issue...
...and gave myself a good kick in the face for being so stupid (much harder then it looks)
I love comics.
I will always love comics.
Sure, it's easy to get worked up or caught up in something that seems little. But I go up on my soap box and write about all these things because I LOVE comics! I want the industry to be a better place, I don't want to see my childhood cartoon heros get turned into sluts, or see my childhood real-life heroes get wronged. Comics at their best and I want to show that best to other people!
So, since I badly needed to do something to cheer myself up, I'm going to completely rip off Bob Chipman's rip off of the Film Critic Hulks article (yes, I know I got the titles wrong in the strip, sorry) and just... list why I like comics. Just making the list put a good feeling back into me.
As for the image, I'm pretty happy with it. Though... I'm not sure if Sam's sarcasm in panel 6 is clear enough. Speaking of which, if you don't know who Sam is yet, check the link!
