Frank "Damonk" Cormier
Damonk is a self-professed mad genius, with delusions of being a webcomics know-it-all possessing a godlike command of the English language (since he’s French-Acadian, don’tcha know), the ability to write immaculate reviews, and the undying fanatical love of all those who meet him.
It’s a good thing he has such a wonderfully patient wife to slap him back down to earth and reality every once in a while.
Oh, and sometimes he draws stuff.
Curious to know what's going on inside your favorite creator's head, but haven't found any of them willing to lay on your operating table for a quick scalpel job and brain yoink? Tired of having to call up your local phone psychic to find out what Joe Cartoonist had for dinner last night? Well, don't despair: an interesting alternative has crept onto the webcomics scene, one that may prove to satisfy all your needs for (voyeuristic?) curiosity â€“ without the need for spiritual guidance at 9.99 a minute, or an abduction by burlap sack followed by water-torture interrogation.
Daniel "Merlin" Goodbrey has been skulking around the webcomics scene for years now, shamelessly exposing small gaggles of readers and creators alike to the wanton nakedness of his raw Imagination. While not a 'mainstream biggie' (yet), e-merl.com holds its own in any measuring contest when it comes to quality of writing and entertainment value, and leaves the pack behind when it comes to breaking new ground in our burgeoning digital field.
Let me tell you a story:
Once upon a 1993, a sequential sonic boom hit the comics industry, as some fellah put out a book devoted to reaching an Understanding. It wasn't the first attempt at offering up an academic-like take on the Mystery of Sequential Art, but it definitely made waves. In one trademarked lightning bolt of a moment, an entire industry screamed out praise, and word of mouth quickly transformed a young semi-successful comic artist into an overnight messiah.
If you haven’t yet heard of Nowhere Girl, please listen – you don’t know what you’re missing, 'cause this nowhere girl has a world of intrigue, character, and some top-notch CG at her command.
Created by Justine Shaw, the full-page, episodic drama webcomic popped up barely a year ago, and has already managed to generate some very positive hype with few pages – even notable print comic writers have marked her explosive (and, it should be noted, completely independent!) arrival to the webcomics scene.
Because the WORLD is noticing that there is such a thing as a webcomic and is expressing a desire, a NEED for MORE. Because webcomics ARE a viable art form, a new medium branching off from our print foremothers and fathers – a medium in which to expand, elaborate, experiment, and perhaps most importantly, enjoy.
Because there are now THOUSANDS of hobbyists, young and old, trying their hand at placing images in sequence, on an infinite canvas.
