So we all have our webcomics (or at least, those of us who update do Embarassed ).

Now I draw (drew) a supernatural furry kind of webcomic. It's pretty obvious that's where my interests lie. But I also like alternate worlds, like steampunk webcomics.

So everybody, if you weren't addressing the subject and genre that you are addressing, what would your comic be about?

I'm already doing other comics so this isn't hypothetical at all - they're just not online. Besides my only webcomic at the moment, which is wordless fantasy, I'm working on a short wordless sci-fi environmental comic and a horror comic about death and art. I'm also planning another one which is hard to categorized, but if I have to put a label on it It'd be "surreal superhero nonsense".

I like to make different things, so going back to the same genres and ideas doesn't happen very often. Or maybe I just get bored with everything I make so I try something else...? Who knows.

I'll probably be wrapping thing with my current webcomic by 2015. I'll definitely have another webcomic to replace it but it's too early to say what's it gonna be about. Probably not a wordless fantasy comic...

The stuff I'm posting is a science fiction story based comic, but I'm also working on a comic that is set in a made up world, that's historical based rather futuristic. And I have a script for a comic that is set in a fantasy alternate-history world.

That's pretty much my range.

Although I did start creating a gag-a-dayish webcomic about filking and filkers once. That was before Black Flag bushwhacked me. So, as always with me, the small simple project got abandoned so that I could do the big one.

You'll have to elucidate on the subject of filking, lavender, because it sounds vaguely dirty.

I think if I had the art skills (and patience) to do something more complex than a gag-a-day, I wouldn't mind doing an explanatory comic (a la Ripley's Believe It or Not or Sunday Mark Trail) that focused on history and society.

If I had access to top-flight art, I would go with a fantasy epic.

Ok, I'll wait for you to become as good as Rob Liefeld.

Had to do some research on this...so apparently he is quite controversial? Not sure I get why, is the idea his art was very over-the-top in the 90s and this was very popular but has many detractors?

He makes a ridiculous amount of money (like in the seven digit range) without being what most people would consider very good. The top result when you google his name is a pretty good representative of why he bugs people.

On topic:

I generally find it really helpful to my creative process to be working on two very different comics at once. One comic is generally my "main" comic (a sci-fi/fantasy thing) and the other is more of a rotating gallery of whichever side comic has snagged my interest this season (currently a journal comic, previously it was a gag-a-day comic and before that it was fan fiction). But by drawing two different comics, in different styles, it helps me work out the kinks in my drawing, and also I can incorporate things I'm really excited about that wouldn't work in one comic into the other.

If I wasn't doing my Steampunk comic or my comic about convention runners... I'd probably do a straightforward superhero comic.

Ooh, or maybe something about con men, ala Hustle or Leverage.

If I wasn't doing this science fiction comic... I'd probably be doing another science fiction comic. I'm a little one-track-minded. Wink I'm interested in writing younger protagonists, though.

You've probably Googled it by now, but filking is like fan fiction, but for singing. Take your favourite song, rewrite the lyrics so it's about Game of Thrones or Harry Potter or whatever, and sing it with all your friends because everyone already knows the tune. There's a guy who regularly, like nearly every day, posts in the comments a new filk to go with each update of Shaenon Garrity's webcomic Skin Horse. And he's been doing it for years. You can't help but be impressed. Well, I can't, at any rate, because my rhyming skill is pretty well zero.

This thread is hard for me to get my mind around. If I weren't making my current comic, all I can think is that I would try to find a way to be making my current comic.

I don't think about genres when I'm creating, though. I just think about what I want to do, and my comic doesn't end up fitting very well into an existing genre.

Think about it more as "If I had the time and energy to do one more comic, what would it be?"

Haha, if I had more time and energy I would probably put it into my current comic, updating it more often and stuff. I really don't know what else I would do, in terms of another comic.

Edit: I guess I'm even more one-track minded than ttallan.

This thread has inspired me. I'm going to go ahead with my history comic (mentioned earlier) as a found-art comic. I've got three entries already, but won't start posting until I have at least ten.

CN I've gathered from previous posts you're a history buff like me. My interest in doing a history based comic has only progressed to the fantasizing stage, but that would be a fun project. I think I would make mine a rough following of American history with the usual signposts but I would throw in the off-beat, unusual, peculiar and bizarre. Lack of time and artistic ability to carry it prevents it moving from fantasy, but it's a hell of a good fantasy.
