History is full of fun things. Like did you know that we landed on the moon once? Actually more than once!
Writing this week’s set of strips was a bit harder than I initially thought. It started off with a quick trip to Wikipedia to see the big list of events that happened well, on this day in history. It turns out that there’s a lot of interesting things that happened! The tricky bit was finding an event that lends itself to an easy joke. The one about the Aeronautical Society was easy. The one about Hitler moving into his bunker really, really wasn’t. The man’s like a comedy black hole.
Oh! I’ve decided that I’m going to try colour on Funny Webcomic again. It’s amazing what a difference it makes to people’s reception of the strip. Let me know what you think! Sometimes I think I’m “over colouring” some of these, so hopefully I don’t go too crazy with the trippy backgrounds. Wish me luck.
I sometimes wonder about returning to previous strip ideas or even spinning them off into their own webcomic. Medical Drama Comic would definitely be a strong contender for this, maybe also How I Would Have Ended. I think On This Day In History would be fun to do again…what do you think?
