Webcomics: a Medium, not a Genre Pt. 2
Submitted by Altercator on March 8, 2006 - 14:13
Thought we might continue this discussion since the forums have been renovated.
To recap: Webcomics is and should be a medium for creators to tell their stories, not unlike books, movies, theatre and video games. They are not a genre that has been defined by PvP, Penny Arcade, Keenspot and the like.
Webcomics are not and should not be just limited to stories about gamers nor a group of friends, no matter how much you have embellish them; otherwise, webcomics would fall into the same trap that current American comics has been associated with superheroes.
Once we see to it that webcomics should be treated as a medium, this should be a good chance for creators to expand more of what webcomics can do. Shall we discuss this?
