Rebooting Comixpedia, Part 5: Genres and Formats?
Submitted by Xaviar Xerexes on October 12, 2005 - 23:36
I want to adopt a more systematic method of describing webcomics for Comixpedia. Part of this is needed for a forthcoming library of creators for Comixpedia. My first take is to adopt a list of genres and formats so that each comic can be tagged with both.
Here's how I would break down formats:
- Series (unlimited)
- Limited Series (published in serialized format)
- Novella (published as a complete webcomic)
- Short Story (published as a complete webcomic)
Genres could be pretty discrete or as simple as splitting up comedy and drama. But what do you think? How would you set up your ideal taxonomy for webcomics and their creators? Your comments will definitely help me with this effort.
