I would like to see it become the norm that comic artists sell copies of their digital work. I’m not sure if everyone is used to this idea. There is often a negative attitude or disinterest whenever the subject of digital comics is brought up. If a digital copy is mentioned it is an afterthought to the print version. The comic book itself is such a revered item, the love of the printed form overrules any other medium.
Hello! I've gone ahead and reinvented my old blogger blog. Early last year I decommissioned this blog and moved all my activities over to my own domain ( awcomix.com ). I'm still putting all my drawing and comic work there, and it's the best place to keep up to date with my comic work. However, I still felt like I was lacking a venue for longer pieces of writing about comics in general, therefore I renamed this blog from awcomix.blogspot.com to anthonywoodward.blogspot.com I will be using the blog for the occasional times when I feel I have something to say about comics, maybe it's an idea around the genre, or something about technology and comics, or perhaps a comics review. I have a post all written and ready to go about the nature of digital comics, which I will post soon. If it goes well I have an idea for a follow up post. If you're still reading by this stage, please do leave a comment.

I am currently working my way through adding the text and grey tones digitally in illustrator. I love the freedom this approach affords me even though I am well aware of the pitfalls of using a digital font. This is an experimental comic for me. I went completely, or maybe as much as I could bear, out of my comfort zone for this one. Using different materials, tools, scale, writing method the whole shebang. The other thing I should mention is that I'm writing the dialogue from a loose outline, there is no definite script as such. I had a few shots at writing the word for word dialogue out and it didn't really get me
