This was funny, I definitely look forward to more!

Wow, thanks for all those responses and comments :). I hope, that I'll have at least ideas for.. ..let's say: 10 comics with good ideas minimum (but I think, that there is probably much more potential to this).

 

Besides: I've uploaded a new comic. I think, that putting all the comics in one post is the best solution at this point.

Another funny one, well done - I particularly like the links with generic rock raider 1837 at the end of both of them. Perhaps if this becomes big enough I can get a 'Generic Rock Raider 1837' t-shirt?

Yeah, I thought that the generic rock raider thing has the potential as a running gag:).

 

PS: Big enough to sell t-shirts. This would be funny/awesome. Time will show, what will become out of the series.

 

PPS: Aargh, I've found a spelling error in my 2nd comic^^ (relatity instead of reality)

You should check out a Games Workshop book sometime, you're fine.

By the way, I was serious about that. Although I'm not a great graphics artist, I know my way around Flash and can make animations if you want, although your comics are perfect as-is.

I finished the third comic. Maybe I will use another fine liner to make some of the letters more readable (although it's perfectly readable, if you use the "show graphics" option, after right clicking it) and scan the comic again.

 

PS: I added a color-version, too. Probably I will do the following comics in a similar way.

I didn't noticed you posted 2 more! These are great!

 

The third comic is really well done! Nor far off the drawing quality of those you find in the news paper.

 

Thanks.

Very good! May I ask, were the colours filled in on Paint? If so, Paint.net has anti-aliasing on its fill tool, meaning it avoids the grain effect.

I used GIMP 2.8. First I changed the histogram to get only black and white (maybe I should try other curves in the future) and after that I painted it wtih the fill function (which was a bit annoying, because there were so many small pixels which were still white, although I had only a black-and-white picture).

Maybe I'll try it with the anti-aliasing function in GIMP or use Paint.net.

 

PS: I tried the anti-aliasing filter in GIMP, but it still looks a bit grainy

 

PPS: Now, that I look closer at the fill tool in GIMP, I think, that there is an anti-alising option, too.
