FEATURED COMIC --> Capefall
Read: http://theduckwebcomics.com/Capefall/

Summary:
The next exit on your right is Stainless City where ordinary people live in a fantastical world. This is a place where superheroes and supervillains actually grow old past their prime and die.

In fact, the death of a superhero is the major plot point in the story. In an unfortunate twist of fate during a rooftop altercation, the costumed hero, Sappho, has just been made victim of a fatal accident. Suspiciously, the only witness at the scene was her nemesis, Chop Suey. The case is now being investigated by every law enforcement agency in town, as expected during the death of a celebrity.

This comic is done in a traditional style with mixed media on watercolor paper. The art is created using a black ink pen on top of watercolour paint, then assembled with photoshop. Some parts are a comic within a comic that are in sepia tones to distinguish it from the regular story.

Watch this exciting story unfold and read Capefall by Panman, rated M.

Newspost here: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/news/2014/apr/14/spring-2014-comic-conventions-and-free-comic-book-day/

The 2014 Spring Comic Convention season is here and in full swing. I have read about virtual conventions for webcomics, but nothing beats the thrill of traveling to a con, spending money on an entrance ticket, waiting in long lines next to strangers in cosplay, and taking photos with famous celebrities. There are just some real world experiences that can not be emulated on the Internet.

Here are a few comic conventions happening within the next two months:

USA



WONDERCON 2014

The note about people portraying bare knuckle boxers in period film makes me think of the fight between the characters John Gully and Bismarck in Royal Flash- played by famous British Heavyweight Henry Cooper and actor Oliver Reed. I wonder how close that version was?

FEATURED COMIC --> Ghost Operators
Read: http://theduckwebcomics.com/Ghost_Operators

Summary:
Ghost Operators is about an elite military assault team who're on a dangerous mission... Ghost Operators and gets launches you into the action right away, you're right in the thick of it, wondering what will happen next and waiting for more! There's fantastic attention to detail in the way the team operates as well as the scenery, uniforms and equipment. The art is fully digital and painted in a "flat" style with no gradients or graduated shading. The colour palette is well chosen for great looking images.

Webcomic Creators Have Creative Minds, Right?

Original news post here: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/news/2014/apr/07/webcomic-creators-have-creative-minds-right/

I would like to think that webcomic creators have a different way to see the world. A fresh perspective through rose coloured glasses can soften the realities of the day-to-day. Maybe an artistic touch is all we need to stay content.
This week I created an original inkblot in the style of a Rorschach test to see if anyone can make any images out of it. This is not an official test and I am not a psychiatrist. I just thought it would be fun to stretch your creative eye muscles a bit and see if you can find a very original shape.

I participated to see if I could make out anything from the ink and here are my results:
Yes, I saw a cloud of cute floating rabbits, bears, and hamsters. Does this mean I am carefree?

What did YOU see? Jot down your notes in the comments section!

+Illuminati2 Ok, well DrunkDuck is the official G+ page for a webcomic host site that I administrate. When Google changed Youtube for some stupid reason they transferred all my favourites, likes and subscriptions over to that official account, and probably gave it that verification since the G+ page was verified.

Since all my stuff is on the DrunkDuck account I have to use it if I want access to it, my main account was left with nothing. Also I can ONLY use this account on my mobile devices, which is where I view Youtube the most.

I think the moral of the story is that status on the internet is pretty random and usually totally meaningless.

FRIDAY NEWSPOST - When Comics Jump the Shark

Earlier this week, one of my sisters sent me some upsetting news: Archie Andrews is going to be killed off in an upcoming issue of Life With Archie. 
http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/celebrity-news/the-a-list/archie-to-be-killed-off-in-comic-book/article17893276/

I was an avid Archie fan when I was young. My sisters and I had a truly massive collection which we kept in a big box, and they were littered throughout every room of the house. Nowadays I only ever read the odd issue and most of our old ones have been sold or given away. All the same, this made me pretty unhappy; part of the great thing about Archie comics was the happy, clean world the characters lived in. While serious comics definitely have their place, for a real kid dealing with real problems it can be a relief to dive into a world where the main character’s biggest issue is having two dates at the same time.

This news got me thinking about all the crazy things Archie comics have done in the last decade or so in an effort to boost sales and ‘reboot’ the Archie franchise: a series of “new look” stories, zombie-themed issues, and of course his marriages to Betty and Veronica.

Archie comics isn't the only comic franchise that’s guilty of this sort of thing, though. It seems that in the comics universe there's a lot of pressure to keep characters going for years and years on end. Along the way it's necessary to have a few twists and turns to keep things interesting, and of course in comics – unlike in long-running tv shows – there are no physical limits to keep things from getting too crazy. Spiderman in particular got ridiculously complicated at some points with multiple clones and so on. And a Thor reboot which began a couple years before the recent films had all the characters reborn…Loki as a woman!

Have any of your favourite webcomics or print comics become just too crazy for you to follow? Does it ruin all the good bits from beforehand when this happens? Let me know what you think in the comics!

In this week's drunk Duck webcomics podcast we join our heroes attempting an ill-conceived hiking holiday on the surface of the sun...
