A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far far away...there once used to be a TerraEarth comic strip. I'm not sure if anyone remembers them but I think there was a total of two that actually got released. I made them in photoshop, but sadly I no longer have the images or PSD files.

So I was thinking: Maybe we could start a TerraEarth comic strip? I have no idea how it would work, but we should get all the board members in on it somehow. It could have it's own separate website as well - like the Forums and Gallery do.

Some ideas include using the forum members as the stars of the comic strips, and inviting Ark, Will and Blazer and other Trilogy characters to make appearances. There could be some pretty neat conversations and scenarios taking place!

If we could have one comic released every two weeks, that would be good enough I think. I'm not sure of course if they would be hand drawn, or photoshopped, or what...but what does everyone think?

Let's hear it!

I'm game for the idea. I assume you would be drawing it?

Dude, like I'm like shaking with the sheer awesomeness. I know raini was going to do a comic of TE:Adventures way back in the day, so we've already seen something like this before. I say bring it on.

I'd say make it a variety strip. Have one over-arching storyling, but then have everybody who wants to send in home-spun strips, be they serious, parody, comic, etc. that get throw in randomly as intermissions.

I am so down for this. Maybe we can get a contributing staff to help with these things? (I can help as a writer... forget drawings, though. Unless you enjoy completely uneven stick figures...)

I'm all in. We can do funny game references/comments just like CAD, G-cats, and Awkward Zombie webcomics.

I'm glad all of you like the idea. Here's the old comic TerraEarth used to have. How many of you remember this?

http://web.archive.org/web/20030205083604/www.terraearth.com/comic/



Yeah, it's too bad you can't view the comic itself. Does anyone happen to have them saved on their HD...?

Anyways, I'll let all of you get ideas for the comics. If you want to be "in" the comic as a character, please give a description of your character in a reply to this thread. I will gather everything at the end and come up with a nice list of everyone. Game-Characters will of course have a personality that is decided upon and agreed upon all of us.

As far as drawing goes, I think we will need 2-3 main drawers, or perhaps even just 1 - whoever has a lot of time and is decent at drawing. Stories will be made up by whoever is making the comic. For instance - say I want to do the first comic - I submit my story to the drawer, he/she draws it and then it goes online from there. We will rotate every week for that person's comic to be released. (This way, we can produce a LOT of comics without getting burnt out with ideas, we can also section off each other's comics by authors)

Please note - This is going to be a huge project to undertake. I want to get TEV3 100% done, including the redesign of the Gallery, before I even TOUCH this. So let the characters flow, and I'll check back at this thread in a couple months to put the website together.


By the way...I thought all of you would enjoy Lisa's description (as taken from the previous TerraEarth comic website):

Name: Lisa
Age: Unknown
Favorite Food: Corn
Bio: Lisa is my name, and I'm in the Super Nintendo game called Soul Blazer. Want to know something? You all know that spiffy dream rod that Blazer uses, right?...ok good. Well anyways sometimes he doesn't do nice things in my dreams. He abuses me, and makes fun of me. So in other words Blazer is a real jerk, and I hate him! In the game I'm supposed to love him in the end, that is so not true!

I guess we'll do like a six panel, quasi-newspaper style comic?

Uhm...

I'll think of my character later... brain is still fizzled from work.

I remember we did the History discussions topics Jason did... ...Wouldn't it be cool to have a sort of comic "Staff" forum to discuss the comics in so it's not public knowledge beforehand what the comics will be about?

I'll move it to the Members Only board for now. Perhaps once the comic is released I'll create a Comic Central board.

Just asking, what would the setting be? Would it be a modern urban setting, or would it be the setting of the TE Adventures Stories?

I would love to help with it, but my hands are already tied up storyboarding a lesbian bondage comic of my own involving squirrel girls.

I'm guessing both. Whatever the author for a particular comic wants to come up with.
