This may be my downfall, but I’ve started a new webcomic. It’s called Nomlings and it stars a bunch of dumplings who will say anything to get you to put them in your face. It tentatively updates Tuesdays and Thursdays to round out my week of comicking. I say tentatively because I hope to update that frequency once I get the hang of things.
Nomlings is sort of an experiment. I’m taking a lot of things I’ve learned doing these here webcomics and applying them to Nomlings. I’m using Tumblr as the backend because I it’s an easy system to use for posting images and I don’t have to muck about with the backend. I’m using the Facebook page for what I would normally use a blog space for because I find that even with all its warts, Facebook is extremely effective at starting and sharing conversations. I’m using Illustrator and a whole mess of fonts because it makes updating a comic so much faster than what I do for YP. Instead of 4-6 hours, I can make a comic in twenty minutes.
We’ll see how it goes. I haven’t even thought about merchandising yet or monetizing or ads or anything like that. Just trying to get things started. So check it out if you like dumplings as much as I do. And please share with everyone!
