I have such a love-hate relationship with webcomics, which I guess is kind of unsurprising since I've been writing one for like four years now. You've got your shitty comics, you've got your great comics, and you've got your comics that just leave you scratching your head as to whether or not you've just stumbled across a vein of gold or a poison gas pocket. You're probably thinking that this will turn into some rant about shitty comics or some permutation thereof, but I'm the kind of person who sees no reason to dwell on things like that, and I've found enough good webcomics to keep me sated. So no, I don't hate shitty webcomics.
What I hate is the webcomics medium in and of itself. Nothing compares to the feel of holding a book in your hands, to be able to have tangible proof of art. To just curl up in a chair and spend an afternoon reading. To not have to wait days, weeks, and even sometimes months to know what happens next, even just a simple act, as opposed to getting to just turn the page. As weird as it sounds, I dislike being able to talk to the author about their work, instead of trying to divine their intentions through scrutiny. Webcomics can have wonderful stories, but in these aspects they will always be inherently inferior.
People keep saying that webcomics are the way of the future, and I know that they are a means for otherwise incapable people to make their mark on the art world. But I also know that I myself started writing a webcomic with the soul intent of learning how to comick so that one day I'd be able to get printed, yet here I've seen professional, printed artists revert to online means of distribution.
I guess this did turn into a rant, but I'm more sad than angry. I just hope print comics will continue to exist somewhere, at least as some form of niche market. Blufin Killies Webcomic Blog Tegaki E Tumblr ('s got sketches and shit) Shameless self-promotion bar!
