Open post: do you seek out help when making webcomics?
Brigid Alverson posted on Robot 6 today that Brad Guigar is putting together a sequel for the How To Make Webcomics book entitled The Webcomics Handbook. This time, it’s without Scott Kurtz, Dave Kellett, and Kris Straub. Guigar’s new book will be based in part on Webcomics.com. Incidentally, Ms. Alverson also conducts a pretty nice interview discussion the modern state of webcomics, which is well worth reading. For example, when asked what might be less important than when the first book debuted, Guigar replies, “Comic conventions are a little less important than they were in the first book.”
Here’s a question to all you webcomic creators out there: do you generally seek out guidance when putting together your webcomic? If so, where? Is it from an online community like DeviantArt? Do you refer to the How To Make Webcomics book? Is it through seminars or art teachers? Or do you generally fly solo and let Fate, more or less, decide of your webcomic is going to be a success or not?
