Make your own comics.
« on: July 19, 2012, 09:16:41 PM »
Over at CB+ I took some comic stories and whited out the words. I then wrote my own story before reading the original. Included is the whited out version first, then my version, the the original. So far no one has taken me up on using my whited version to make their own story. So if someone would like to do that I would like to see your versions. Or you could take a story from another book and do the same yourself. You can go to
http://comicbookplus.com/?cid=1864  and pick it up or I would be happy to put them here if DCM is interested.

I think this might work in the Small Publisher/Misc Fun section.

I think the topic might work better in the Games room section Narf.
Moving it now.

This can be fun as long as the new script isn't too tame. If the script is outrageous, GREAT!

This technique has a long tradition. From Maria Reidelbach's COMPLETELY MAD (Little-Brown 1991, p.25): "...Kurtzman sometimes had difficulty coming up with enough material [for MAD]. Here, he lifts the artwork directly from an EC suspense comic and supplies new dialogue, much of it also clipped from other sources [in various languages and alphabets] and dropped into the word balloons. The effect is strangely surreal and at the same time absurdly funny." (MURDER THE HUSBAND, Mad #11.) The mix of English, Chinese, Hebrew, Cyrillic, and Greek really transforms this two-hunters-in-a-canoe page.

Obscene and political texts would be fun too. But not for posting here.  >:D

Making them made me realize how hard lettering is. Even with a computer it was difficult to make it look good. Makes me appreciate the letterer of comics so much more. I gained an appreciation from the bad A Machine at Charlton but even more so now. It was also some really bad coloring in a Charlton that made me appreciate the colorist more.
