It’s a good time to be in comics

Lore Olympus, one of the biggest hits on Webtoon, has been picked up by the Jim Henson Company for development as an animated series.

Webtoon is also teaming up with Crunchyroll to co-produce animated content from the site’s other original webcomics.

From an earlier generation of self-published comics, Jeff Smith’s BONE has been picked up for publication by Netflix. (The series was originally self-published, with Smith driving around the country delivering them to comic shops out of the back of his car, before it got picked up by Scholastic.)

And speaking of Scholastic, their latest graphic novel release by Raina Telgemeier debuted as the #1 book in the US last month. Not the #1 comic — the #1 BOOK.

Sometimes, nice things happen.

Comics & webcomics, throwbacks & updates

Can you maybe contextualize the Homestuck epilogue for someone who has never read Homestuck but is curious what all the hullabaloo is about? ”

Prototype Calvin and Hobbes strips, from the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum. (He used to be called Marvin!)

Marvin and Hobbes

“Comics and graphic novels bounced back from 2017’s sales slump to have their best year ever in 2018. […] For the first time, however, [comic shops] represent less than half the comcis market, when digital and crowdfunding are factored in.”

The Webcomic Reader Poll Data is here! Find out what your readers actually want to see from your webcomic! And which is better, webtoon or tapas?”

When a series you follow has a scheduled update, but the page isn’t finished yet, would you prefer the artist post a (readable) draft on-schedule and replace it when the finished strip is ready? Or forget the schedule and only post after it’s done?”

A reminder that you can install products from Adobe CS2 for free.

A solemn reminder of how dangerous artistic burnout can be, even when congoers are wonderful: “So many people, who’d never met my brother and didn’t even know his name, tried to save him, acting so quickly and earnestly. The staff and other attendees even formed a barricade to keep the walkways clear so that the paramedics could get to him, and transport him to the ambulance, as quickly as possible.”
