So I write about games, but not in a public way. It’s just something I do as a kind of exercise, and to get my thoughts out in a meaningful way. But, I’ve been wanting to change that. Obviously I’m doing the writing, so why not put it out there? I’ve gone through all sorts of different ways I could alter it to be delivered as just text, just audio, and even as video… but mostly still as audio because I don’t want to deal with Youtube’s bullshittery.
One idea I’ve had a long time is to deliver criticism in the form of comics. I used to make webcomics for quite a while, and I have a strong love for the medium, so it seems like it’d be really cool. Maybe not the most effective means of getting your point across, but I think it’d be fun and interesting. Unfortunately I can never seem to land on a good way to do it. The most common issue being that I always have so much to say, and no idea how to actually convey that within a comic. It shouldn’t be so hard, but it is. I try to be an optimist, so I continue to believe there’s a way, I just need to find it!
In the meantime, I was hoping maybe somebody else could offer help or insight? Are there examples of using this medium for criticism, or really just any kind of opinion or thought pieces? Something other than simple punchlines for what’s really just a joke comic.
I believe comics are capable of doing this somehow, and I want to figure it out… but boy would it be helpful if someone had already done it in some form
Additionally, if anyone on here wants to attempt this kind of thing, that’d be really cool too. Artistic skill not required. If nothing else it might be a fun exercise for people to try to figure it out :]
