MSH 01 - Short Story by jbwarner86 MSH 01 - Short Story by jbwarner86
The first installment of my new comic strip, "Maxwell Silver Hammer". Here, we're introduced to 16-year-old Joel Maxwell, his mother Tina Maxwell, and Joel's ability to secretly eke revenge on his family through his writing.

I'm still tinkering around with the dialogue - I'm trying to find a somewhat more legible font.

Have you tried [link]? for fonts? - they've got a great colection of comic style fonts as well as some ones you don't usually find on other sites :D

And a great gag too! :clap:

Hm... I've been loking at your comics (basicly in backwards order, since I started on page 1 of your deviations) but I really like these ones. Whether it's actually because of your drawings and "plot" of the comics, or because the name of the comic is a Beatles song, I do not yet know... But either way, they're all good. :)

That's a really cool job with expressions! You have a great cartoon style - and a fine eye for everyday situations :)

I might suggest [link] . S'where I get a bulk of my fonts.

Might I also ask what mediums you're using? I always been curious how you would create line-art as clean as that without several hours of effort (I do mine in Photoshop, which takes forever and a day but at least it makes editing/reshaping easier).

I use nothing more than pencils, pens, and regular printer paper (with a ruler for the panels, obviously). It's about as low-tech as you can get, except that when I scan the comics, I type the dialogue over the original written dialogue so it's easier to read. On average, I can complete one daily comic in about an hour and a half; Sundays take about two and a half hours, not counting coloring.

BTW, I've been to 1001 Free Fonts before (it's where I got the one I currently use), but I haven't looked at their entire inventory, so I'll give it another look-see. Thanks!
