Whilst nine people from the internet do love me. It seems that those who publish comics don't.
Or rather they like me, but feel as though my work is not right for them.
"It's a rambling mess of fun. It's not something we could publish" was one reply to the comic below.
"A rambling mess of fun." Yeah, i'll accept that. A nice quote for the back of the book perhaps?
It's all there for a reason, even the spanking. He's doing it because he's pissed off with himself/wife/kids ect
She's into it so it doesn't end up being a domestic violence thing. "Take that womankind !?"
All of which is pointless if you have to explain it.
Did you get it? It's not just jokes is it?
I feel as though i'm at a crossroads or something. I need to change tak or I don't know what. I wouldn't give a crap if I became a success or not, if it weren't for the fact that I really could do with earning a bit of extra cash some how, because my job doesn't seem to pull in enough to cover things.
I don't want to "sell out" and be rich and famous but I thought that I could do something that would do something.
I see alot of stuff in the comic shops that is great and should be there on the shelves. but a couple of things I've seen in the past have made me thing I can do better.
Is it just the comedy?
If I did a story about a man who was unhappy and frustrated at home, So he got in to a sado-masochistic relationship with a stranger, and then over time came to realise that this was a mistake and the problem wasn't his wife or children it's him.
Pretty much the same story but without the laughs. Would that stand a better chance?
I could go darker.
Or is it all the fucking swearing?
