Things are sure getting intense. It’s good to see Theta and Gamma again.
At around page 32 I switched from writing general scripts to actually composing a panel-by-panel storyboard. This may create a weird transition in the style, but it’s also become much closer to how I envisioned it being (for better or for worse). The storyboards I made have individual panels with dialogue, images, and descriptions, but the interpretation is still up to Dean and so is the layout. He still alters dialogue and flow when it’ll change it for the better, but much less gets altered than when we were using the the general scripts. Dean’s a pretty seasoned comic artist by now, but I’m still getting the hang of it, so bear with me.
Hello. I’m sorry, but I only drew 10 pages this week. A lot of stuff has happened. I hope you’re finding this interesting.
To read the story from the beginning, click on the “Klamert’s Village” link up at the top.
This story is taking longer than I thought it would.
Isn’t Omega weird-looking? Also, Epsilon’s poses in the end are kind of absurd. We’ve been busy playing a lot of old fighting games, and we’re planning to work some more on the fighting game. But don’t worry, we’ll also be putting out comics as fast as we can. We hope to make 10 pages our standard by working hard, so look out, and hopefully you’ll get 10 pages next week too. That’s all I have to say. – Jim
Here’s your cartoons for this week. Don’t eat them all at once.
Sorry, but this is it. I will try to work harder, like a good cartoon character.
It looks like the robots have mostly succeeded in their mission, but not without resistance. There isn’t much that the villagers can do to fight against the robots. But who knows what they will be driven to do now that some of their daughters have been taken. How long is Klamert going to be able to keep taking from the village without something bad happening to him?
If these pages aren’t coming fast enough, you can blame me for being lazy, and not making sure that work is being done. I hope that things will start moving at a more desirable pace soon.
Here’s the second part of the story. Sorry, no Pumpkin Man this week. It’s harder to work now that school has started up, even though I haven’t been going to school.
Anyway, we’ve got two new characters. I hope you enjoy it.
Hello again. The premise of this story is seeming weirder and weirder the more I think about it. War-deserters, sentient robots, and kidnapping aren’t normally put together like this. If you’ve been keeping up with the comics on this site, though, you’re probably used to seeing stories from a different perspective, with fanatical pumpkin cult members as main characters in Pumpkin Man and an evil sun as the conflict in Shadow Wide. Actually, for Robot Souls Comics, this story isn’t terribly unusual, but I hope you find it enjoyable and engrossing, as I’ve found all of the previous stories that my brother has written himself.
Happy new year! This is the first part of a comic my brother wrote (and I drew). I hope you enjoy this story. The entirety of what you see here was created in the last 3 days, so we worked pretty hard.
This began because of our mutual desire to create a comic by combining our efforts, with the goal of quickly and dirtily making a comic over new year’s (although it looks like it’ll take a bit longer). We started wanting to make a comic with a simple plot involving a robot hero, and one that we could finish in around 10 pages. Dean also wanted the story to have a powerful sense of good and evil in it. Then I had the idea of a robot hero who was good, but was forced to work for the wrong side in some sort of man-versus-society story. Well, rather quickly the story evolved (or perhaps devolved) into the story of six robots working for a rather irreputable seeming deserter, performing the rather irreputable task of stealing food from villagers. Well, it’s got robots, it’s got character, and it’s got a rather complicated moral dilemma. What a great way to start off the new year. I hope to work with Dean to create many more wonderful and interesting comics.
Hi, I’m Dean. No, really! I drew these funny pictures for you to look at. But I’m lazy, so I only colored in the red parts. This is what you call the black-and-white-and-red style of drawing. Anyways, government is complicated, particularly for little kids. They’re pretty red, so they’ll probably come up with something pretty communist.
