27.Aug.2009 Webcomics in ‘Wizard’
Readers of the EoP! Though I’m not normally one to mix my hobby blog and my day job, a story I conceived and edited for issue #214 of Wizard is now online and you should all check it out.
Months ago, we began talking about doing a tech-centric issue of Wizard. I had just decided I was going to pursue doing a webcomic of my own and was overdosing on the medium, one which has been severely under covered in Wizard, so I suggested a big feature that would essentially be a techy “How To” guide to creating webcomics with a few different creators. It was approved, so I went to a guy whose online series “Webcomic of the Week” on WizardUniverse.com (back when he worked at the Wiz) really got me excited about a section of comics I had previously ignored: Steve Sunu. I suggested the formatting of the article and the three strips we’d feature, Steve did the work, I did the editing and it turned out to be a pretty cool piece.
Since then, I’ve had a monthly feature called “Webcomic of the Month” approved for the magazine, and though it’s a small feature now, getting the word out to the print audience is always a good thing! Anywho, please go check out the story and enjoy! Hopefully it helps some prospective webcomickers get their feet wet or at least introduces some comic fans to some webcomics they may not (but should) be checking out.
