I’m trying to decide if I’m going to Only Human, my cyberpunk story, as a digital or a web comic.

A digital comic (like Mark Waid and friends over at Thrillbent) would allow for transitions, controlling the viewing pace, and would be suited for mobile devices. It’s an innovative way to do comics these days. It engages the reader and creates something distinctly different from print comics. But I can’t seem find a script to handle the navigation. Also, I won’t be able to post the comics on Tumblr (with its wonderful hash tags and reblogging features).

I have experience with static webcomics, and know how to set up a website just fine. Compared to a digital comic, a webcomic is less labor intensive. Webcomics are also print friendly. But webcomics are also a dime a dozen these days. A cyberpunk theme isn’t enough to stand out now.

Unless I can find a good navigation script, I think I’m going to lean towards a webcomic. Perhaps I can convert to a digital comic later. Any suggestions where to look for the code I need? Any other thoughts or ideas?

This is the limited, 3 color technique I want to use for Only Human (black, white, red). I can always adjust the red in GIMP to another, now that I think about it.

An open call to action to ALL artists everywhere! 

Announcing WORLD ART DROP DAY on September 2nd

All artists, (that means students and professionals, painters and cartoonists, sculptors and illustrators, animators and fine artists, EVERYONE who creates) this September 2nd is World Art Drop Day. Wherever you find yourself that day, drop a piece of your art and tell someone where to find it. The world needs this right now. We need to feel a little more connection to each other and there’s nothing like the bond two random strangers can make through the act of creating and giving.

I recently just finished a cross-country art drop this summer and it was exhilarating. The emails and responses I received from the finders ran the gamut of funny to touching. I want that for everyone!

Here’s how it works:

  • Draw a picture and hide it somewhere.
  • Take a photo of either the art or the hiding spot or a combination of both.
  • Post the image, the city you dropped it in, and a hint on any social media of your choice. Be sure to included the hashtag: #artdropday
  • Then move on, hoping someone finds it. OR hang around and meet your new friend.

That’s it!

I need your help spreading the word on this. Reblog it, retweet it, facebook it, or even tell someone in person!

September 2nd, lets connect the whole planet with art!

Don’t forget!

Does anyone know where to find the HTML script for the display and navigation of a Thrillbent-style digital comic?


kidskullomania said: Is it true that you drew the first few issues of Powers in a security booth at work in the middle of the night? I had never heard this before. wow, Mr. Oeming. just... wow. With all due respect, hearing that personally gives me for the future.


Yes I did draw Powers in a security booth. It was after having already “made it” in the industry and I still found hard times and had to get a “real job” to fill in the space between checks. So I made sure I found a job I could draw at:)

When I read the How Powers Is Made in the Supergroup TPB, and saw you drew on copy paper and did your layouts with ballpoints, that inspired me. I didn’t need all this fancy equipment to draw comics. I just needed to DRAW COMICS.

Penciled spread from ETERNALS #3 by Jack Kirby

Kirby’s designs for Celestials are some of my favorite. I think Dustin Weaver is one if the few modern artists who can design one on par. Edit: or Dale Eaglesham.

Had a dream where I was at a TED talk speaking about the comics industrial complex. I was promoting indie webcomics and digital comics.
