Formats. It feels like webcomic content is being pushed towards a mobile friendly format (single col vertical) rather that a more standard print/tablet based format. Not sure I'm on board with this, but will be looking at workflow options around it. Its easy enough create the display engine e.g theblackgates.com/comic/mobile but do I direct energy towards it... Not sure

I tested the activitypub wordpress plugin to my wordpress site with the idea that you could get dedicated release notifications into the fediverse without the rest of the blather. e.g. @projectnews Need to sort profile pic but an interesting idea.

Back from a hiatus and new to mastodon so figured I'd intro the fight-webcomic I've been working on - will be 8 parts in total, currently working on 6. Heres a single page from parts 1-4 as a primer. View at theblackgates.com

When I update a block of content I need a chapter cover for it. These are generally cribbed from the existing art in some way, but for this one I quickly rendered the character in the post below. The pose is more cocky / less violent, but the intensity of the face is still there, space on the top right to fit the logo / text block

That feeling when something clicks. I've been sitting on a project problem for a few months, occasionally attempting to find a way through it. Latest crack - like that - it fits, its right, can make progress.
