I’ve felt like my comic has been pretty stale for years so it’s time to shake things up. The problem I’ve had is that the “funny” ideas that inspire comics are usually things that I have trouble translating into an actual comic strip. Since my goal is to dissect an idea and talk about it on a stage (someday I swear!) then why not do that in the first place instead of translating it into something that I just don’t find funny?
I’ve read comics of friends which are more like this format just illustrating some thoughts or experiences and I enjoy reading those because they’re personal whereas the strips that I come up with are at best surface level ideas of what I’m thinking about.
So there will probably be more text and necessarily traditional punchlines, but I hope to make this entertaining. More importantly I want it to be more fulfilling for myself which should hopefully translate into better work.
