Kalla u desperate bitch
Every once in a while I get a notification when people are talking about the comic on the internet somewhere; today there was a forum arguing about why certain popular/ higher-polish webcomics like this one are more boring than other types of comics. I thought it was amusing, and I have an easy answer: there’s no such thing as boring content. There’s just content that you relate to and content that you don’t relate to. Cape comics are ostensibly the most popular and lucrative comics in the US and I can’t stand a single one of them. The idea of superheroes doesn’t interest me at all, and that’s fine. Maybe my comic is boring and unrelatable as hell to some readers and that’s fine too, because on the other hand, I have managed to connect with a lot of readers who are engaged and understand everything I am going for. And that for me is the objective of making this comic.
A big part of being a creator is managing your expectations… it’s not a bad thing when people don’t overwhelmingly connect with your work, and frankly I would be shocked if one thing in history was 100% well received (I doubt it’s ever happened). People make stuff which connects with a specific target audience (size may vary) and if you like my comic you are probably closer to the center of my demo’s bullseye. If not, then that’s ok, and thankfully there’s a lot of stuff out there to enjoy in both the pop and niche zones.
If you’re like me, and ran out of enjoyable stuff to read, then maybe you’re going out of your way to make it for others XD If that’s so, remember that perfection has never been on the table, so make what you want and have fun doing it.
Anyhoo, next page tomorrow, see you then~
The 2018 Hugo Award Nominations are open until 3/15! If you enjoyed my work in the previous year, I would be extremely grateful if you’d consider nominating “Mare Internum: Chapter 4” in the Best Graphic Story category (due to the voting process, only complete segments- such as a chapter- of a work are eligible for nomination. Next year the complete work will be eligible).
Thank you for putting up with my nervous forays into legitimacy, and of course for considering me~
