Perils of the Bold action figure webcomic

Postby AFCErik » Fri Oct 06, 2006 1:52 pm

Howdy, folks. I thought you all might like my photographic webcomic starring customized Shockini and Stikfas action figures.

Let me know what you think of it.

Hey Eric, :]

I already told everyone about it here (and a few other forums too). It's a fun comic! I'm looking for programs to help make comic-pages more easily than Photoshop. I'm guessing you've seen the craptacular comics we have? :lol:

Night, thanks for doing that. I guess my search of these forums was not exhaustive enough.

Yeah, I read a few of your comics when I posted. Coolness.

I use Visio to compose the comics. Makes text and speech balloons very easy. I use Photoshop to size the images and do special fx.

No problem 8)

Have you seen how this thing works? http://www.mycomicbookcreator.com/marvelheroes/

It looks like a dream come true to me, so I can make special text, bubbles, backgrounds, etc. The newer comics I make all use bubbles but I need more backdrops :lol:

Wow... that looks awesome. I wonder how easy it is to use?

You guys could really get carried away with that program.

I'm not really impressed. Not really anything you can't just do in Photoshoppe. It seems too heavy handed. If you really need backdrops for your scenes, just get a picture online and set your figures in them like I do sometimes.

Did you download it?

I'd rather use a program designed to make comics than Photoshop. I'm assuming the program makes making comics 1000 times easier, but if it's just a mediocre program then I'll have to stick to PS. :[

I did download it, but it only comes with a 5 day trial. I think it's easier to use Photoshoppe and do your comics panel by panel than in that program. Photoshoppe allows for much more versatility and I already know how do use it.
