Books – A Comic by C. A. Brown

Well, it has been literally years since I made a comic-format blog article and, although this one ended up being a slightly introspective ramble about getting back into reading books about 8-9 months earlier (after not reading much for the 2-3 years before that), it was so much fun to make.

However, due to making these articles/comics quite far in advance, I made this comic several months before I ended up getting a more modern refurbished computer (so the cynical parts about system requirements etc.. are a bit out of date. Plus, expect modern “AA” indie game reviews to start appearing here occasionally from about November onwards 🙂 )

Enjoy 🙂

The Complete “Damania Reheated” – All Four ‘Episodes’ Of The New Webcomic Mini Series By C. A. Brown

Note: Due to a scheduling accident, this page appeared by mistake for about a month last year. So, apologies to anyone who saw it then and wondered where it went.

Well, in case you missed any of it, I thought that I’d collect all four comic updates from my recent “Damania Reheated” webcomic mini series in one easy-to-read post. You can also find links to lots of other comics featuring these characters on this page too.

For something that was mostly planned at the last minute and made during two days (when the weather was hot), this mini series turned out a lot better than I expected 🙂 Interestingly, two of the comics in this mini series used “old school” watercolour art too (mostly because, for more detailed backgrounds, it’s quicker than adding colour digitally).

And, yes, the fourth comic was originally meant to be a full-length comic, but I ended up changing it before posting since (thanks to making comics so far in advance), it had quite literally become obsolete before it was even posted. Plus, due to a combination of oversights, scheduling problems etc… and this issue, there won’t be a line art post tomorrow. But, if you want to see the line art for the first three comics, then it can be viewed here, here and here.

As usual, all four comic updates here are released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence.

“Damania Reheated – Obsolete” By C. A. Brown

Today’s Art (23rd July 2019)

Here’s the fourth (and final) comic in my “Damania Reheated” webcomic mini series. Don’t worry if you missed any of it, I’ll be posting a full retrospective here later tonight. In the meantime, you can find links to lots of other comics featuring these characters here.

And, yes, this was originally meant to be a full comic. But, in the months between making it and posting it, the comic quite literally became obsolete (due to a computer game being remastered). So, I kind of had to make a quick single-panel last-minute replacement instead.

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the third comic in “Damania Reheated”, this month’s four-comic webcomic mini series. You can find links to lots of other mini series featuring these characters on this page.

And, yes, this comic probably should have included more cynicism (both about tourism and about people who moan about it) but, well, I only had four panels.

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the second comic in “Damania Reheated”, this month’s four-comic webcomic mini series. You can find links to lots of other mini series featuring these characters on this page.

Although the art in this comic was a little rushed, it’s been a little while since I’ve made a comic about Harvey and Rox’s fascination with old technology. Not to mention that this comic also gave me a chance to reference a couple of older comics like this one and this one.

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the first comic in “Damania Reheated”, this month’s four-comic webcomic mini series. You can find links to lots of other mini series featuring these characters on this page.

And, yes, this comic update was inspired by real life. Specifically, visiting a large bookshop in Petersfield last summer only to find that there was literally no horror shelf. Seriously, not even the token single row of shelves filled with 30-50% Stephen King books that was common in large bookshops during the ’00s.

The Complete “Damania Reluctantly” – All Two ‘Episodes’ Of The New Webcomic Mini Series By C. A. Brown

Well, in case you missed it, here are both updates from my recent “Damania Reluctantly” webcomic mini series in one easy-to-read post. You can find links to lots of other webcomic mini series featuring these characters on this page.

This mini series ended up being so short due to the hot weather at the time I was making it (July 2018), which meant that I didn’t really have the energy or enthusiasm for planning or making a whole 4-6 comic mini series.

But, although I’d originally just planned to make one single-panel comic called “It’s too bloody hot!”, I suddenly realised that I had enough sarcasm and random jokes about the weather to make two comics. Even so, this mini series isn’t meant to be canonical.

Surprisingly, I actually ended up using more traditional than digital materials in these comics (which is why they look like comics from 2016-2018). This was mostly because I realised that, if there’s one good thing to be said about hot weather, it’s that watercolour paint dries really quickly in it.

Anyway, here are the two comics 🙂 Enjoy 🙂
