Comic Non-Sans: Webcomic Gift Shopping

When I sat down to ponder this week’s column, the first thing that came to mind was a sort of abstract list of things I’d want for Christmas — more hours in the day, an iron drawing hand of the gods, etc.  Then I realized that’s not particularly helpful.  It could be an outlet for […]

Comic Non-Sans: “Megacynics”

Say hello to Steve and Ash.  They’re recently-united half-siblings.  They’re also geeks with a geeky webcomic.  They talk about movies, video games, pop culture, weird friends and family, and all the other sorts of things people who star in their own webcomic tend to talk about.  They update twice a week, blog on occasion, and […]

Comic Non-Sans: For the Readers

In the midst of everything going on, I nearly forgot that Thursday is Thanksgiving, and this particular holiday season I’m going to have a lot of extra time on my hands while I recuperate at home.  And as I was doing my post-surgery rant, I mentioned doing something festive for the readers who have remained […]

Comic Non-Sans: Un-Planning a Con Appearance

This time next week I’m going to be relaxing in my own private suite on the fifth floor of the local regional medical centre post-surgery.  And by “relaxing” I mean “abusing the morphine drip while I try to wig out the nurses with my Japanese DS games.”  I’m using the magic of the internet to […]

Comic Non-Sans: Clearly the Work of a Female Artist

Honestly, I’m really not much on talking about gender roles in … well, anything.  That’s best left to people who are more plugged in to social issues than I am (which is just about everyone, as I devote the majority of my brain power to memorizing lyrics to 70s giant robot anime themes).  Nonetheless, as […]

Comic Non-Sans: #whyiwebcomic

So on the 20th, Neil Gaiman encouraged his Twitter followers to contribute to his #whyiwrite hashtag — a fairly straightforward exercise in telling everyone, in a limited number of characters, what they get out of writing.  I kept an eye on the responses and saw everything from escapism to personal therapy to it just being […]

Comic Non-Sans: Kara Discovers More Social Networking Outlets

I’m like everyone’s mom in one major respect — when I discover something new or cool, I act like I’m the first person to find it and think it’s new and cool.  The most recent of those is Tumblr, which I’ve heard both good and bad things about.  The good?  It’s addictive (well, “good” there […]

Comic Non-Sans: Flying Solo

The co-writer I’m currently working with consistently has asked for a sabbatical to get his head back in the game before we launch into a pretty bulky bit of story.  The friend in me understands, but the creator in me is utterly horrified at being left alone for an indeterminate amount of time.  In fact, […]

Comic Non-Sans: Saying Good-Bye to “Penny & Aggie”

It doesn’t matter how many projects of your own you finish, or how many you watch end — it’s always a bit of a stunner to watch the ending of a webcomic play out.  And it’s definitely a stunner to see the ending of a comic that has undergone multiple metamorphoses, be they plot or […]

Comic Non-Sans: Observing the Livestream

More and more lately, people have been streaming their webcomic-drawing progress.  I had it suggested to me by one or two people that I do the same, but I’m so easily distracted that I almost never sit and draw a comic at one go so I figured mine is not the artistic method for people […]
