What would you say to a thread (looked after by mods) where the readers of QC could post their questions of QC and stuff like that.
I liked the thread on Crtl+Alt+Del (it seems to have dissapeared now)
which also a answer thread so the answers were not swamped by the questions.
Just a thought really.

I think this is probably a good idea. Post questions you have here (check the FAQ first for the more common ones) and I will do my best to answer them.

OK GO

I was the "weird artsy kid" at my absurdly-wealthy, pretentious all-male high school. Fortunately I was too big for the jocks to give me a hard time, and they all thought I carried knives in my backpack or something. I did a lot of art and music, pretty much like I do today. I was friends with all the weird nerdy dudes, several of whom I believe to be genuine geniuses.

Nope. QC has little or nothing to do with my personal life.

Really really hard but also really really rewarding! I wouldn't be able to do it without Cristi- there is literally too much work for one man to do, and I am absolutely awful at business things, which she excels at.

I was just drawing robots in my sketchbook one day and he appeared out of nowhere. The rest of the idea pretty much spontaneously generated itself in my mind.

Quote from: Rawr and Stuff

I don't know if I have any specific influences. I pick stuff up from all over the place- Aido, John Allison, Jeff Rowland, Kelly Patches, White Ninja...the list goes on and on and on. I periodically browse figure drawing books and websites for new ideas.

A Playstation, if I recall correctly. I like earlier Radiohead, but as I age I find myself more and more irked by Thom Yorke.

Two weeks in real-world time, or in comic time?

Marten mentioning Belgian monks who brew their own beer.
Somewhere lambic-ish beverage mentioned in a news post.
The OCD girl is called Hannelore...

So, how is it that you know more about Belgium then most non Belgian folks?

Also, why do the shopkeepers laugh at you in a guitar store when you play "Stairway to heaven" as try-out?

I really can't stand Ben Gibbard. The singer of used-to-be-slowcore-but-now-they're-emo Death Cab For Cutie and The Postal Service, his mincing, oh-look-how-clever-I-am lyrics grate on my nerves like few other singers can manage.

Sounds like a no.

Agreed. Knock it off.

oh, and by way of a question: did the spartan lack of belongings that seems to afflict Faye and Marten (seriously, where are all the CDs and stuff they supposedly own?) arise out of a storyline need to reflect their lack of funds, or was it originally just plain laziness at not wanting to fill every frame with all their crap? Or an amalgam of both?

No, actually:

QC has a lot of plots going on now. I assume you let the "characters do the writing", but have you ever thought of a plot that you began to write but scrapped because you thought it wasn't that great? Lets call them the lost story-lines. I tend to do that sometimes. I end up starting over.

Opinion: Webcomics are the artistic movement over our time, comparable to the Romantics, the Beats, Hair Bands, and other groups of cool people who liked making cool things for others to see or read or hear, and are often high profile (in their community) friends/enemies.

Question: Do you agree, and how does it feel to be a part of that?

Also, do you think Boston is really that cool? Because lots of webcomic artists seem to hang out there.

And finally, in your general experience, how cool are the artists/writers of webcomics, when you encounter them personally? Of course, I'm curious from a fan perspective, because if I went up to Boston (or Maryland, or San Diego, or wherever it's cool to be) and ran across some webtoonists, I'd have a different experience than you would, because you are friends with some, and are definitely known by all. And if they don't know you it's because they're not known themselves, probably. Snotty prats. Anyway, are your kind cool with fans awkwardly introducing themselves in non-convention (or conventional) places?

As you have made the comic, do you find you progressively take longer to make a comic because of the improved artwork and writing, or it takes less time because of your experience?


It pretty much balances out. The more comfortable I get with the current stage of my art, the more I feel the need to try new things. So as I get faster at some things, I'm teaching myself other new stuff, which takes time to do right, so it works out to pretty much the same over time. The one exception is coloring the strips, I've got a good system worked out now that saves me probably 2 hours per strip.

Opinion: Webcomics are the artistic movement over our time, comparable to the Romantics, the Beats, Hair Bands, and other groups of cool people who liked making cool things for others to see or read or hear, and are often high profile (in their community) friends/enemies.


I don't think we qualify as an "artistic movement" just yet. Right now we're a very loosely-affiliated bunch of people doing drawings and putting them on the interweb. To call it something more than that would be to dance with pretension, in my opinion. It's fun being a part of the "webcomics community" but it's not the main reason I do what I do.

Also, do you think Boston is really that cool? Because lots of webcomic artists seem to hang out there.


Boston's pretty okay, for a big city. I like Northampton better.

And finally, in your general experience, how cool are the artists/writers of webcomics, when you encounter them personally? Of course, I'm curious from a fan perspective, because if I went up to Boston (or Maryland, or San Diego, or wherever it's cool to be) and ran across some webtoonists, I'd have a different experience than you would, because you are friends with some, and are definitely known by all. And if they don't know you it's because they're not known themselves, probably. Snotty prats. Anyway, are your kind cool with fans awkwardly introducing themselves in non-convention (or conventional) places?

99% of the webcomic people I've met have been super-nice, fun people. There have been one or two assholes that I can remember meeting in person, but they seem to be the exception to the rule. Even people who act like dicks online tend to be nicer when you meet them in person. Personally, I love meeting fans, whether it's in a formal setting or not. Some random girl recognized me in Target the other day, it was fun meeting her and saying hello.
