I never got why some webcomic fans demand and get angry about updates. The creator is giving you a gift of story and art and sometimes humor for free!

Asked by Anonymous

Slow updates can harm the momentum of ongoing stories, and I definitely recognize that as a weakness of my comic, but yeah, at the end of the day it’s a free comic with no official update schedule. I want to get them out as quickly as I can, but I also don’t want to make promises I can’t keep.

First: your art is great (I am in love with basically every character design that I've seen of yours), your stories are great, and willingness to both speak out on feminist issues and freely accept your own privileged position is, dare I say it, really great. Second: have any companies, big-name or otherwise, approached you regarding doing anything with Clockwork Empire, or something similar to it? (I would in a heartbeat, if I had such a capability.)

Thanks very much!

Regarding Clockwork Empire, I’ve had some modest interaction with Nintendo, most notably a recent interview for Nintendo Magazine UK. I’m not a game designer though, the whole thing is just a fun proof-of-concept kind of exercise. It’s helped bring up this conversation in the gaming world, and that’s the best I ever hoped for.

Hi! When I was growing up, I was told over and over that comics and graphic novels (AND science) were only for guys. Reading your comics online was my first exposure to a love I hadn't even considered I was allowed to have! I just wanted to say thank you for that!

Asked by Anonymous

No problem! That stinks that you had to grow up in an environment like that, but I’m glad that you’ve discovered a new passion! 

55 Notes

Hello! I just wanted to say thank you for your art and storytelling, which are always top notch. The internet may be sour and like to take your not receiving hate as a challenge, but I'm glad the majority of your received messages have been positive. Way back when you first started this blog, you made a bunch of posts about comic theory and I found them incredibly helpful and interesting! Is that anything you'd ever consider picking up again?

Asked by aliceblank

Thanks! It’s been a couple years since I’ve done any essays/articles on comic theory and design, but it’s something I definitely want to start up again this year. My current non-comic set of priorities are:

  1. Finish sending out the rest of the Kickstarter commissions
  2. Set up a Patreon
  3. Redesign the Dresden Codak website
  4. Write new articles on comics???

So there are a few things I have to do first, but after that? Yeah!

Do you regret turning on anonymous asks yet?

Asked by Anonymous

Actually, no, I really haven’t run into any problems with it. The overwhelming majority has been positive feedback. Everyone’s experiences with anons are going to be different, but for me so far, it’s mostly been people who want to anonymously say nice things.

As I mentioned before, I’m a Straight White Man™, the least harrassed people on the planet, so your results may vary.

if the science deals with the objectivity of the universe around us, and dark science is the rejection of science, does that mean that dark science has to do with subjectivity?

Asked by Anonymous

Maybe! All that’s been confirmed is that it is a different methodology for acquiring knowledge. Leviathan also did say, when questioned, that Kim “literally” couldn’t understand what he was doing.

About two and a half months ago, I announced my new employment at Motiga, an indie video game studio out in the Seattle area. Up till now, I haven’t been able to talk about the game we’ve been working on, but today we told the world!
Ladies, gentlemen, and esteemed persons, may I present to you: GIGANTIC.

I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that I am now a part of this incredible collaborative effort. The source material is absolutely STUNNING; anytime you see a character in a three dimensional environment in the trailer is our game. That’s what it looks like. It’s not even in alpha yet.

As for me, it’s my job to make the out-of-game experience as eye-catching and stylish as possible. The key art (pictured above and in the header of all our sites and social media platforms) and spot art illustrations within the site are just the beginning!

I can’t even begin to tell you guys how proud I am to be working here, and how excited I am for people to begin experiencing our game! And don’t worry; Motiga places a high value on its employees’ personal creative endeavors. Expect to see more Cloud Factory in the coming weeks!

HEY GUYS - Lexxy is basically my favorite artist and everything about this game looks fantastic, you should take a look.

So I’m digging Korra Book 3 a ton, especially the spontaneous airbenders. Here’s my take on a hypothetical new airbender from the Fire Nation. Her clothes are cut in an Air Nomad style, but retain some of the coloration/stylings of her homeland. Also her airbending moves are based on Jiang style Bagua, because I figured at this point we would have some variation in airbender styles, given everyone’s multinational origins.

Hey, I'm sure you've been bugged about it before, but has work on the Silmarillion stopped? If so, will it be picked up? I'm not being impatient- I know you've got a lot to do, and you're not obligated to produce content for anyone. Just curious.

Asked by Anonymous

I’ll get around to it when I have time and the mood strikes. All of my reboots/redesigns are 100% nonprofit, so I can’t have them cutting into my actual work time.
