Quackcast 225 - To Fan-service or not to fan-service
Listen: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/quackcast/episode-225-to-fan-service-or-not-to-fan-service

Today Banes and I talk about the subject of fan service in comics (and other pop-culture). This Quackcast was inspired by a newspost by HippieVan of that same title. We're helped in our discussion by the really interesting contributions of many smart people on DD… that we read out in High-larious voices! Is fan service a good thing? How do you think about it in stuff you read and see? Do you put it in your own work? Why? Why not? These were some of the things we talk about on the subject. Also, catch Gunwallace's great theme for Grueson!

Four years after the disappearance of his father, Leo, a young boy with celestial dreams an imagination filled with fantasy winds up moving back into the old house that his family had left for the city. The house looks magical from the outside and it also has a mysterious attic that contains several decorative pieces of artifacts. After digging in the attic for a bit, Leo discovers some objects that belonged to his father. There is a character, Jabaru, who acts as a narrator and sends postcards to the reader to give a back story on Leo.

The comic is fully coloured using an assortment of different mediums from hand-drawn line work and watercolour on paper to hand-drawn line work and digital ink.

Get lost in the adventurous land of Leo's attic and read Jabaru by Jabaru, rated E!

FEATURED COMIC --> Pig's Cautionary Night Tales: Seance

http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Pigs_cautionary_night_tales_seance/

What do you get when you mix a group of youngsters with the intention to do a seance and the dangers of entering a cemetery late at night? Well, I bet you can already predict that things will not turn out pretty.

If you're looking for fun on a horror-filled night, this comic might be the ticket. It has a talking pig that tells scary stories, puppeteering demons, disappearing characters, and the undead. Pig's Cautionary Night Tales: Seance is a stand-alone story as told by a talking pig as a part of a cautionary bedtime story to a young girl.

Honestly, this comic is a trip because the character designs are so fun and playful, but the subject matter can get quite horrific during the scenes. The comic is drawn completely in digital and is in black and white.

Read Pig's Cautionary Night Tales: Seance by Ryukais_comix, rated Teen. If you DARE!

SUMMER BREEZE, MAKES ME FEEL FINE
 
I was searching for some seasonal fruits and vegetables during my last trip to the market and ended up buying a personal sized watermelon. That is when I knew that Summer is finally here.
 
What are your favourite traditional summertime activities? Did you grow up in a family that made camping trips in nature? Or picnic in a park watching music concerts or Shakespearean plays? Is your summer really just about visiting the beach and soaking in the sun? Do the sunny days mean that it is time to fire up the grill and BBQ outdoors? With several students on break from school for the next three months, Summer is the perfect time to get a summer job or to travel. Are there any ducks planning a really fun trip in the next few weeks? Is anyone going to any comic conventions?
 
In my city, local groups of indigenous American tribes from various regions get together for an annual Pow Wow around this time of the year. I enjoy visiting them as an outside observer.

THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN'

Five years ago I was sitting at a dinner table with an older, conservative crowd of family friends when the topic of same-sex marriage was brought up. I added my thoughts to the discussion with the best example of recent history I could muster up at that time. I said, "Less than sixty years ago, whites and non-whites were not allowed to marry in this country due to anti-miscegenation laws. So when I think about same-sex marriage, it is not a matter of whether it will be passed, but when. It is inevitable." I was met with a silent response and awkward glances sent around the table.


There were a number of whirlwind news reports last week: A certain "high-end" grocery store was under fire for price gouging, Anti-vaxxers lost (in California), Universal Healthcare won, Housing Equality won, progress for women who are pro-choice (in Kansas). On Friday morning, my news feed lit up with news reports that would have fit perfectly with the liberal-left leaning views of my University newspaper years ago when Proposition 8 was ruled unconstitutional in California. The only difference was that the source of this news was being generated from the Supreme Court of the U.S.A. in Our Nation's Capital. Same-sex marriage is now legal across all fifty states.


The United States has taken its time to get on the bandwagon for this important human rights issue. Several countries in the European Union and Canada have already passed their own similar laws regarding same-sex marriage. Regardless, this is a major landmark given the United State's global influence on issues.


How Does This Topic Relate to Webcomics?

The majority of webcomics I have read over the last decade have been forward-thinking in their subject matter. There are several popular webcomics online and here on Drunk Duck that have featured same-sex couple romance in their storyline. It has become so commonplace that same-sex relationships are viewed as equal as heterosexual relationships.

The turn of the tide did not happen because a few government officials in power decided to make history last week. There has been a cultural shift in the way this country and the rest of the world views same-sex marriage because of each television show, movie, and comic book that features characters in a same-sex relationship. Pop culture has played a humongous role in influencing public opinion.


I do not expect everyone who reads this article to agree with me. In fact, I know everyone is not on the same page with this issue. I happen to be fortunate enough to live in a country where the citizens are free to disagree on controversial issues and not get persecuted for their beliefs. And that is the main reason why the passage of a law that reflects Human Rights is so important today.

So throw your hands up in the air. Understand that all humans are entitled to be treated with respect, and that a larger percentage of the population is no longer ostracized for loving who they love. Celebrate today's Progress for a happier, healthier, and more enlightened tomorrow.

QUACKCAST 224 - Finding your own voice as a writer
Listen: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/quackcast/episode-224-finding-your-own-voice-as-a-writer

For Quackcast 224 I've asked Kevin Hayman back again (KOTA's world, Mailbox Rocketship, Erant Apprentice), to regale us with his Owen Wilson stylings…
But seriously, the topic is “finding your own voice in writing”, i.e. learning not to imitate your hero's, move beyond that and write in your own style. Kevin is a really funny and interesting guy who's been doing webcomics for many many years since the very earliest days of Drunk Duck and he has some great insights to impart on “finding your own voice”.
You can also catch KOTA at the Mississippi comic con this weekend!
-Enjoy Gunwallace's lovely, creepy musical take on our featured comic, Restless.

DIGGING DEEP

There is a brand new piece of off-white coloured paper on the desk. The click of a GraphiGear mechanical pencil. The lead hitting the table. Tap. Tap. Tap. The need to draw is there, but the inspiration behind it makes it very difficult to create an image out of thin air. Artist Block. This is one type of blockage that affects me more than a blocked artery, I am dealing with a blockage in my ability to create art.

.:.
Ray Bradbury, once voiced, "may I die before my voices", in a prologue of his book The October Country because he never wanted the source of his stories to run out. Like a writer who deals with writer's block on occasion, an artist can encounter a disconnect when an image can appear in the mind, but not on paper.

On rare occasions, a burst of inspiration can materialize in the middle of a creative slump that makes the production of new works flow as fluidly as the ink from a brand new fountain pen. Love is a great source to feed a creative mind, just look at every song and book on that subject.

However, there is a darker muse that preys upon the weak of heart like a malnourished succubus that can be an untapped, murky cesspool of creativity. It shows itself with that hollow feeling in the center of your chest where a heart should have been. I am talking about Sorrow. I am not averse nor a stranger to Sorrow, as it is also known by its other name Dolor. My maternal grandmother's name was Dolores, so I can say that Sorrow is in my blood. Sorrow is a very fragile source of creativity that must be handled delicately because too much exposure can lead to depression.

There is hope.

Some are able to take the pain associated with Sorrow and channel it into something beautiful: The painter with the missing left ear; The vagabond busking on the street corner with soul-filled eyes; The young woman sitting alone in the parked car with a handkerchief and Chopin playing in the background.

So the next time life sends you lemons, grab some pen and paper.

Hello, I’m VinoMas, the “friendliest Vampire in the World”!
