Y’all should really be reading Chilling Adventures of Sabrina if you aren’t. Imagine a ‘70s satanic panic horror movie mixed with The VVitch, mixed again with Sabrina the Teenage Witch (well, obviously), and then stuffed full of blood and guts and hauntingly grotesque imagery. That’s what this series is. It’s a real page turner, too. Absolutely required reading for horror fans! I’m in love.
Unca Mod, can you give us tips on how to find duck stories, please? Also- I'm French, and a lot of the duck comics I read as a kid were translated from Italian, and I'd looove to find them again, but I have no idea if they ever got an English release and if so what were the titles... In any case, thank you so much for what you're doing- I started looking into my old comics again thanks to you and it brought back lots of happy memories :')
Ah, well my friends it is time for me to introduce you to the wonder that is I.N.D.U.C.K.S.
this is an amazing search engine, just for duck comics! here’s an example of how to use it; type in some aspect that you’re looking for (here I’ll use the title of the story)
then you get a list of possible answers- scrolling down I find the one I’m looking for fairly quickly
clicking on the right result takes you to a page for that specific story with all the data available, describing the contents and artists responsible, but if you’re looking for a particular translation keep scrolling down; here I’m looking for the English (US) translation
and that’s all there is to it! sometimes the tricky part is which category of comics it will be in on readcomiconline, as there are so many runs of Donald/Scrooge comics. This one was fairly simple, but use your intuition and you’ll probably find what you’re looking for. I hope that helps, and happy hunting!
I want to support more wlw authors, but my tastes are pretty specific and I don't have the attention span to finish reading stories if they take more than one sitting. What's a good place for short story/anthology recs if you're looking for something specific? Or do you or your followers know of any good lighthearted fantasy/"soft science" sci-fi short stories by and about wlw off the top of your head? Am I being too picky?
I don’t think you’re being too picky. Straight people get a huge variety of stuff so they can all afford to be picky and nobody even notices because they still have 7,000,000 things to read that fit their criteria and feature straight people. We deserve to have our picky tastes met, too.
That being said, I don’t read nearly as much as I should. I mostly read comics these days. It’s shameful, but that’s where I’m at. So, any followers wanna help out? Genre stories about women loving women?
(Reblog this post with your answers cuz I’m going out of town and won’t be around to publish asks.)
I've been reading this comic for a few weeks now and I love it! It's awesome and you're awesome authors! I have a question for you: what led you to design Asriel without a mane? I'm curious, since I've seen designs of him as an adult with a mane. It seems to be a common "Boss Monsters look like a mix between a goat and a lion" headcanon.
thank you very much! your support means a lot.
in canon, boss monsters have extremely long lifespans. in caretaker, asriel is only 38 years old, which is nothing in the face of thousands of years. he could grow long hair like asgore eventually, but he’s too young right now!
Calicot, I wanted to tell you that I really, really, seriously *really* love your Human!Tamatoa :'v Today I was trying to draw him and I thought "How would Calicot's Tamatoa look like with short hair?" I think he would be gorgeous, and anyways I like his long hair the most~ Thank you for reading this, you're the best :3💕
~ @opaqueshineAwwwhh thanks so muchfor your kind words !! ♥ But… Well… I think Tamatoa doesn’t really like to imagine himself with short hair… Gnhglmm And hm, It doesn’t really fit him.LONG HAIR FOR TAMA !
so you're an agender person fetishizing gay dudes aight
because I get off to drawings of dudes fucking? that’s not what “fetishizing gay dudes” is. treating REAL people like things for my personal sexual amusement would be fetishizing. I’m sick and tired of having to explain this shit to you dumb fucks. me looking at a drawing or reading a comic or story is something that happens in my private home that doesn’t affect anyone, anywhere, and it’s none of your goddamn business what kind of porn I like.
Why in fuck should I give to your Patreon to see comic scripts? You're a pro writer. you dont need more money.
No one is forcing you to give to my Patreon. I’m not fishing around in your wallet looking for your credit card and CVV number, I promise.
I’ve written over 40 articles on my website about breaking in to comics, pitching stories, promotion, conventions, and the economics of creator-owned comics. They’re still free.
I received quite a few messages from people asking if they could show their appreciation for those articles (and my work in general) so I set up a Patreon where anyone could read scripts and pitches to gain extra insight into the comic creation process for the price of a coffee each month.
If you’re interested in becoming a professional writer, I have another bit of info for you - it generally doesn’t pay well. For the vast majority of people in the business, professional writing does not bring in enough to act as their sole income. Money I receive from my Patreon goes into a ‘warchest’ to help pay art/creative costs on current or future creator-owned comics so I don’t have to pile up a crazy amount of debt to keep telling my own stories.
Hey pal! Are you familiar with story INDUCKS code D 97011? It's definitely my favorite Gladstone story, but I don't think it was officially translated into English. I couldn't find a fan translation either, but I assume you're better at that than I am. Anyway it's amazing- the plot and ending are very original. Gladstone gets to soul-search and Donald gets to enjoy some success, what do you know!
ANOTHER Massimo Fecchi! I’m starting to think he likes Gladstone as much as I do! Can’t say I’ve heard of it, the English title seems to be ‘What’s luck got to do with it?” -anyone out there who knows where I can read it, even if not in English? I’d be super grateful! first page on I.N.D.U.C.K.S. looks like this;
First off, I wanted to say I love your comic, you're so talented! And I wanted to know if everyone has any special talents or hobbies to keep them occupied? Thank you, and I look forward to reading more of your comic!
Thank you, glad to hear you’re enjoying the comic!
Jenn reads books and solves puzzles: she buys crosswords/sudoku/etc (yes, some people make them for travellers! They’re like zines and sell surprisingly well), she has a Rubik’s Cube and sometimes she buys random mechanical puzzles and trades them back after solving them. She’d unwind by target practicing with her Desert Eagle, but since wasting ammo isn’t exactly a good idea, she does it very very rarely.
Cotton keeps himself moving. He doesn’t have any real hobbies, if he feels anxious or uncomfortable he just likely goes out for a jog.
Wight reads sometimes, but he doesn’t really have any hobbies and he falls easily into lethargy when he’s idle and doesn’t have a conversational partner or someone to spend time with. He doesn’t do well alone.
Maverick reads non-fiction and spends time exploring and observing people in secret from e.g. rooftops. Anything to keep his mind occupied. He draws sometimes.
Ramona sews, cooks, goes out, even cleans up if there’s NOTHING to do. She cannot stay still at all, she has to be doing something.
Modra reads sometimes, but he really doesn’t have hobbies. He likes to spend his time with someone, rather than doing something.
Benny, as mentioned a many of times, likes carving useful items or toys, and other woodwork. He enjoys building and creating and seeing the finished item.
Jerry reads trashy romance novels, because he finds them fun and light, and he likes the hilariously bad writing. He also enjoys swapping stories with other travellers and he keeps extensive diary of his travels, weather, etc.
