Honestly you guys have been creating so much news lately my inbox has exploded. There pieces of it lying everywhere and picking it back up is such a daunting task I’ve been putting it off for week. I guess that’s what I get for trying to enjoy my holidays and going on vacation. So despite how much I hate doing this I’m going to have present the news quickly without vetting it.

Amazing new find in Doctor Popular. He’s started a fantastic new project around creating 3D comics without using glasses. It’s a slow and cumbersome project but the results show a lot of promise. I wonder if he could make the movement much smaller and speed it up faster than 24 fps?

Webcomic Overlook gives us a review of SuperFogeys. Still one of the more entertaining superhero strips I’ve ever read.
Thanks for the link love. Regarding adding more frames; that should be doable, but the file size would grow very quickly. Most gifs are just small images, however mine is a full (albeit compressed) comic page. So loading 24 full pages of animation might be a bit much… but man, it would look awesome!
After your comment about the size of your strips I thought some more about it. While in shower it occurred to me that I wasn’t thinking right. We’re on the internet and you don’t need 24 frames to make something move faster than the eye can detect. How about creating 2 versions, slightly off from each other, that switch between each other faster than 24 fps? Would that give the same effect? You could even take it step further and make things closer have greater changes then those in back to create perspective.
