Hi DW,

I've posted about different aspects of this project over the last few years, and finally got a chunk done on my own. bethlehemair.malarts.com (http://bethlehemair.malarts.com)

I want to start by saying I LOVE COMICS, trad print comics that is, but after reading some Scott Mcloud experimental works ( check this out, it's actually very cool: http://www.scottmccloud.com/1-webcomics/trn-intro/index.html ) I got into the idea of the web as a platform for storytelling in it's own right.

I'm going to see if there is a thread discussing webcomics as a form before I start rambling, but it's been an interesting journey trying to get my own web based work done. And it's not done yet.

Please take a look when you have 5 to 10 minutes to spare, and let me know your thoughts, viscous or kind, lol.

Warning: Dark Themes and some language. Also it seems to work best on
a desktop / large screen. I didn't make it with mobile in mind, though I'm thinking about it now...

Exceptional work. I love this idea.

What about being able to click on certain items inside the pictures. you could have someone click on the pill for instance and it could take the reader somewhere else for a bit.

also it was too big on my google chrome browser. I had to scroll sideways and vertical.

actually you could do something like an open world web/browser comic. there is no narrative. leave it up to the reader to create, explore, and find stuff on his own. you as the creator would put everything where it needs to go and then let them explore

looks cool, has potential, and i'll definitely follow the project.

YellowDogArtistry, thanks muchly - that's exactly the kind of feedback I need, sorting out the whole technical side, making sure the site is responsive to different screens, without losing the scale in some of the art.

I like all the interactivity you suggested! I have to find ( or learn ) more web stuff and take it there.:)

just search the web... i'm sure if you look hard enough you'll find some code or html stuff. look at browser games... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Browser_game

or find someone that knows that stuff and is willing to help you out at whatever deal you make.

this idea has so much potential... i hope you nail this sucker.
