This has been years in the planning but we have finally agreed upon a theme for a Digital Strips Comic. Donâ€™t get me wrong, there have been some gems before now. We started off original story arc of Zampzon and myself producing the show in our homes that ended up with us moving into our studio. The new crew added their own touches always continuing the theme so close to PvP we found it hard not to keep it too ourselves.
Now we have something completely different. Going back to the hay day where Zampzon and I were debating jumping in and out of webcomics using a yellow submarine, weâ€™ve created a whole new spin. This current 5 year mission is to bring the adventures of the DS staff through all the webcomics of the world using the magic of Science Fiction.
What does that mean for our fans? It means you get to see us produce a webcomic that incorporates every other one. When we enter a world we will write an arc that matches in both written and artistic merits. A gag strips gets a gag strip while single panel gets becomes a single panel.
So sit back and relax while we run through the wonderful world we so loving call webcomics!
When every other webcomic out there does a riff on 300, you can’t help but join in.
Yes, the typical, four-panel layout got away from me a bit on this one. And no, this kind of stuff doesn’t actually go on behind-the-scenes. But I’d like to think that if we all worked together under one roof, it might.
And yes, I would totally paint muscles on myself.
Another comic, this time looking at a possible reason for the lack of turn out for our contest. How’d I do? I’m I getting warmer? Are you guys just holding out for a chance to kick one of us in the junk? Is that what you people really want?
I used to wonder why there were so many lesbians in the world of Web comics. Then they wise guru Daku explained it all. Now I understand.
Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not going after Web comic lesbians in general and I’m certainly not going after any one strip. I’m just pointing out it’s a power that I would abuse if give half the chance.
Just as my diminutive counterpart in this strip announces, with all the good news coming Gabe Strine’s way, it was high time someone did a tribute to the template-based, tiny-typed, smooth-lined characters of Brinkerhoff!
After all the hubbub and even hullabaloo (that’s right, I went there) around here about the WCCAs and the questionable clout they have with webcomics as a viable art form and business, I figured it was high time we cranked it up a notch and got EVERYONE involved.
Digital Strips : Show 105
|Just think if I had waited just two more days this show would have marked exactly 2 years that the DS podcast has been podcasting. Considering my memory the only reason I even know that is because I just spent the last month restoring all the archives. Everything from the old posts, their comments, to the first 40 shows has been restored in all their glory. So sit back and listen to a double show. We give you a review AND an interview of Little Terrors.
In this episode we talk about:

That’s right, Daku is a stern taskmaster and his insistence in nothing less than perfection has led to a swath of layoffs here at Digital Strips which cut into our once happy family and made us the meager team you now see.
Or, this could be entirely fictionalized and just made a good, topical subject for a strip. My bet’s on that one, given the obvous discrepancies between Daku of DS: The Comic Strip and his real life counterpart.
And if you ask me, a cartoon featuring marionettes of the whole DS cast is a winner no matter how you slice it.
Just incase any of you are holding back joining our team because you think now that Daku’s a big shot source for the New York Times our requirments have skyrocketed, think again. Aways remember, this is the internet.
Sorry the art still looks like I draw with crayolas. I am working on that.
