What exactly makes comic art good? That’s pretty much in the eyes of the beholder so to speak. Art is very subjective, it all depends on what the reader likes.
Zorphbert and Fred uses a clean writing / font style, excellent perspectives and non-linear lines. You know exactly what the frame is, who is in it and what the events are that are taking place. The underlying principal of looking at comic art is whether or not you can understand the vision in which the artist is trying to portray in their scene to the audience.
Navigation is a big issue with *alot* of people. People want to find your content or find a way to ‘get’ to your content. One of ways you can do that is to actually have something that makes it so that users can go to a post of yours that’s completely random.
In ComicPress, Tyler Martin created a Random Comic widget which is very useful to have people go to any number of comics in the archive. I’ve adapted the widget to be random posts, a pick of all of them and converted it to a WordPress 2.8 + widget.
Yes, I know ..we just released ComicPress 2.8 .. that doesn’t mean I don’t start work on 2.8.1 right? In the immortal words of Tyler Martin … 1 bug fix, 20 new features.
