Well, in case you missed any of it, I thought that I’d collect all five of my recent “Wordless Comics” in one easy-to-read post. These comics are somewhat different to most of my occasional webcomics though.
After the previous webcomic mini series, I found that I was running low on enthusiasm for webcomics and – not wanting to take a 1-2 month webcomic hiatus – I decided to try something a bit different.
Originally, I’d planned to make a series of comics inspired by Winston Rowntree’s excellent “Subnormality” webcomic but, when planning these, they either ended up being third-rate imitations of “Subnormality” or they ended up being basically the same as my ‘uninspired’ comic updates from February, but with different characters. So, remembering that Subnormality’s tagline is ‘Comix with too many words‘, I decided to do the absolute opposite.
Like with the “Wordless novels” of the early 20th century, there are no words in these comics. Surprisingly, this was actually quite liberating and I found that I was even making “serious” comics for the first time in ages. These comic updates contain more artistic detail and self-expression than I’d even dreamed of. However, the level of artistic detail is why there are only five comics in this mini series.
As fun as these comics were to make, most of them took at least twice as long to make as an “ordinary” comic update usually does. Still, as intense as they were to make, they were a lot of fun too 🙂
As usual, all five comic updates are released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence. Likewise, you can see a larger version of each comic by clicking on it.
