I've been running a webcomic for over a year now!

It started out as me just making fun of newspaper comic formulas. That didn't last for very long, but the theme of starting with genre parodies continued on for a bit.

It's been going up daily, without fail, all week long, seven days, at midnight EST. Except, it's 1AM EST for half the year because comicfury can't handle Daylight Savings. Then again, neither can I.

Here's an example of a strip you might see:

However, I frequently break the three-panel mold and try new things, such as this thing, which was released one column at a time despite making sense when read row by row:

Sometimes I even make animations! They tend to happen around big numbers; for example, the most recent one I did was for the one year anniversary of the comic's existence.

Are you drawing these traditionally and scanning them in?

ngl, I enjoy them more as individual bite-sized narrativeless stories than a coherent whole. I hope that doesn't read as denigrating your abilities as an author, I just really like nonlinearity and kishotenketsu.

Yes, even the animations. I use photoshop sometimes, but only to remove scanner imperfections like unidentified vertical lines and whatnot. I also boost the contrast for all of them.

I'm not insulted, but I should mention that you'll be disappointed by the cerberus feeling that 100-200 has, and then the way the feeling sort of continues despite the promise of it going back to how it was. The early comics really do stand well alone, though.

having read this, then read the strip which preceded it narratively, I think this one works pretty great both ways

I made a cardcast deck for the comic, but it only goes up to comic 270. I might split it into two decks; one that works without knowledge of the comic.

I'll have to go through the entire thing again

EDIT: This was a joke. What I should have done was kept track of every page I commented on.
