    Do I need a prologue?

    If the prologue is going to tell me what you're going to say later anyway, you don't really need both. I'd cut the prologue if there's nothing in there that's story-relevant that the chapter won't explain. As a matter of personal taste, I don't use prologues. I'm not against them, but the...

    Thoughts on Doing Multiple Comics at Once?

    At the moment, I have three ongoing comics (two new, one that I've been working on for a couple of years). I'm working on another short story in addition to a regular commission job. I have many stories in various stages of planning, from fully outlined to vague concepts, in a folder, and it was...

    Setting a pace (schedule)

    I plan the next scenes when working on the current chapters, so the next chapter is pretty much written in my head by the time I get to thumbnailing it.

    Setting a pace (schedule)

    My personal method is to outline the story in full (at least, the important parts) and work on it from there one chapter at a time. For individual chapters, it goes something like: Thumbnail and script dialogue for chapter. Set up pages for chapter (drawing panels and laying text in its most...

    How do you make comics?

    With short (less than 40 page) stories, I tend to jump right into the thumbnailing/scripting stage.
