Starting a webcomic is really easy, I realized -- I think I might start one myself in the near future. Does anyone out there write their own comics?
No, I don't write comics, but I am a writer and an editor. Nychii and I said we'd throw around some ideas and start our own Webcomic for Webtoons Live one day....the clue word being "one day." Although, I have a ton of ideas floating around in my head, I don't have a lot of time to actually conceptualize it
If you did decide to write a Webcomic, what would it be about or what genre?
I guess when I first thought of Western Webcomics, I always visualized villans versus superheroes, and they usually have capes. Ugh. But the one good, no, probably great thing about Western comics is their diversity. No offense to Korean toons/comics. What I mean by that is, Western comics are able to more easily target a specific audience by labeling and narrowing the genres of their comic (i.e., LGBT, gay comics, bisexual, etc.).
I found some great gay Webcomics *blushes* WARNING!!! It is for ADULTS only! As such, I won't post the links, and I'll only tell you the names of them. If you want the links, PM me.
The first one is called Starfighter
. It is sci-fi, and about a flight navigator named Abel who gets assigned a new fighter pilot to his ship named...you guessed it, Cain. Can you see where I'm going with this? There are only two chapters so far, but *fansface* well, you get it.
The second one is called Teahouse.
It's about a brothel where you can buy men or women. Basically, it is a lot of bishies who like to have sex. But it has its cute and romantic moments as well. There are three chapters so far.
The third one that I liked is called Artifice
. It is also sci-fi, and it is about a robot, or A.I., and a human guy. Kinda reminds me of Three Level Combo, but gay, lol. This one is updated on a page by page basis, no chapters. This author is much, much more soft core than the above mentioned, and it seems to me the story will be more of a love story, but I could be wrong. But so far, not much has happened. If it turns into something mature, I'll take down this link. So, here is that link: http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/
Um, and I know we are talking about comics here, but I have to mention a gay/yaoi novel I stumbled across. I can't even remember how I found it now. Oh, right through Facebook. Gotta love social networks! Here's the link: http://raythereign.com/
She writes mostly m/m stories, but she does have stories with m/f relationships. However, the story that got me hooked is called The Abyss.
Freakin' amazing. Basically, it's about a young boy named Anarion whose father is leading a rebellion against an alien race called The Kin. His father tells Anarion that Abbandon, The Kin's leader, is not to be trusted, and if the humans make peace with The Kin, all hope would be lost. Eventually, Anarion's father is caught and brought to trial...where he sees The Kin leader for the first time.
Maybe she could use a little editing, but the storyline is wonderful. I have no idea how she thought up of something so elaborate. I think the first four chapters can be sent to you for free, but be careful cuz you will be addicted!
Hope no one was offended by my choices
