"The toys have died comics topic has staggerd, but what do the Bionicles Authors do now?" 

 

Before we begin, I'd like to thank Calvirik and Reznas for being the guys to get me back in to the comic biz. Especially Cal because, well, I'm going to to base a lot of the early comics off of his "style". It's not the most origional (nor the coolest) way to do things, but for now it'll keep me afloat. Let us begin:

 

Episode 001: The elephant skeletons in the room.

Episode 002: Job well done.

Episode 003: Alas!

 

Credits

Rahi Zaku for the RZ kit (and all the people who have contributed to it

 

Calvirik for any quotes and comic setup that I blatantly use that resemble his

 

Reznas for the comic help topic

I like the title little allusion to the 'Elephant In The Room' saying.  Very clever indeed.

Okay two things:

 

1). I had no idea what your character was referring to at first. 

 

2). It only makes slightly more sense after I barely noticed the blood stain on the box. 

 

I don't think you accentuated the blood reference enough for me to get the...joke I guess...

 

I know that was real hard to read through, but I think it will be something important to pay attention to in the future when in the producing process of comic making. Remember, you're goal is to help the readers understand what your going for. In this case, its that the main character (i'm assuming) has dead bodies in that box as payment. 

 

And now that I think about that, I don't think I'll be sleeping tonight. :wired:

Good to see you getting back into things, Ptol. I'm curious to see how this goes - the comics so far are interesting, and as usual filled with your amusingly morbid sense of humor. Here's to plenty more comics coming our way - Good luck!

...If you guys are considered dead authors, what make me and the any new comic artists? Living Authors? Semi-dead Authors? Dying Authors? I don't even know anymore.

 

But, anyways, this is good!

I get credited? Really? D'awww. Thanks! :happy:

 

Anyway, besides the blatant copycat, Calvirick-style backgrounds, the comics are nice. Not much to say yet, but you seem to have your graphics worked out. The text was easy to read as well. Love the font! :D

New comic!
Alas!

You thought the "Dead Authors" was just word play...
I apologize for the lack of shadows, I've been very tired the last two days so I guess I glossed over that part...hopefully it won't happen again though!

(for the life of me I can't remember if posting a new comic is an exemption to the double post rules still or not:/ )

But I don't look beautiful in grey. :( I hope that the end of my comic making hiatus will turn that grey frown upside down (and green).

 

You can double post if you have any new content, which you do. :)

Hold on here, is that a Shakespeare reference? What with you holding the skull like that?

Of course this would happen.

 

So, I said I would resume this series, but then after making this I deleted the wrong folder on my flashdrive and lost a good chunk of my stuff, so I'll be resuming Helios! It was my favorite series, so I might as well. I may try to get this up again too.

This is an interesting series.

 

It deals with morbid things that someone else once.. tried to do. To a much more.. horrific extent.

 

Kind of funny a series called "Dead Authors" made me remember him. Not in the dead sense. The fact that he's gone for other reasons.

 

Anyway.

 

An interesting series. It's short, it's dark. I like dark story stuff. I find it a much more enjoyable thing compared to comedy and such.

 

Sorry to hear about your backgrounds though. I'd suggest you save all that stuff to two devices at least. Hey, I even have two usbs and a backup hard drive for all my stuff.
