100- Mortal Jousting

<< First < Previous Next > Most Recent >>

It's here! 100 COMICS!! Only approx. 2600 to go!!!

Thank you to all those who keep coming back to read this hobby of mine, despite the spelling errors, confusing colouring and fact that this is essentially a less good rip off of a very good rip off of a quite good comic1.

Here's to the next 100, and the 100 after that and so on until I get bored and wander off.

1 Also, check it out, I can do superscript now!

Good work, congratulations!

Not that many spelling errors, but try to include a few more commas and semicolons. Your characters seem to be regularly running through their sentences :P
(I mean in general, not specifically this time.)

Confusing colours? I don't know about that one. What's confusing?

@Phoenix: Ah thanks, I've got some help on the spelling front so that shouldn't be a problem so long as Sincere keeps checking up on me (nudge).
That comment on colouring was in reference to my ongoing battle with the GM's text boxes, I still don't think it's right but I'm resolved not to change anything else until at least #150.
Oh and I totally get what you're saying about sentences running into each other. My last target was to get a higher word:image ratio and now I need to make sure all those words make sense. I'm currently doing research into comic books (both online and off) to see what sort of things pro's do. Any suggestions?

@Fleak: I just saw this comment.

What I meant was basically to make pauses during a sentence. Especially when addressing a person, and even more if the character is speaking calmly. E.g:
"You mock me Dwarf but you're chained and I'm free."
should be
"You mock me, Dwarf, but you're chained and I'm free."

Other examples:
"Actually, young lady, very few men are killed..."
"It's funny, don't you think."
"Some of us have kingdoms to run, you know."
"Since that night in the Riverlands, he's seemed changed."

If you don't use those commas, it looks like the characters are in a hurry and need to speak quickly.
