Welcome To Falling Oaks- New Fantasy/Horror strip

Post by Paul Harmon » Thu Jan 04, 2007 10:01 pm

Hey everyone,
I'm diving head first into the crowded world of web comics. My strip is more about adventure and mystery than humor. If you like Dark creepy and atmospheric surreal horror mystery stuff...this may satisfy you.

the basic concept :
When a young girl's bunny mysteriously becomes monstrously large, the inhabitants of Falling Oaks begin to take it upon themselves to uncover the mystery for their own personal endeavors. As the mystery unfolds so does the veil concealing the strange lives of the people living there. Sometimes it's best not to know...

Boy, that has a lot of appeal and potential. I love the colours and the style.

As for what to do WRT making a website or archive, it's good you're thinking about that. Presentation has a HUGE effect on webcomics. If it's hard to find episodes or see which way you're going - forward or backward - if it's hard to navigate, lots of searching, scrolling and clicking, then it's yet another obstacle for the reader to overcome.

I could tell you how to do it, or what I'd do. But what I'd suggest is take some time bumping around your favorite web comics. How are they presented? How are they archived? Do you like it? Is it easy to read and the navigation easy to understand?

Then, ask the folks who make those comics what they used or how they did it. Most webcomic artists are only too willing to answer questions about their art, and they may share techniques with you so you don't have to re-invent the wheel.

Whatever you decide, I wish you good luck. Strip looks off to a blazing start. Nice!

Thanks Guys! and thanks for the info. I got a true site for it last night and got some great info from some other web strippers so hopefully I can get it up and running very soon and in the meantime keep the blog not too difficult to look through.
