Now before we get to the comic posting I will say three things:

  • I made one other comic, it remains unfinished, and had crappy editing, this will be slightly better, but not by much, so don't get too mad at me for the sets, please.
  • This comic is not humor based, so if you want lulz, look to muffo for that.
  • I give a cookie to whoever can name the song witched I used for the lyrics.


Now on with the comic.

Its pretty good for a start, but try to improve the backgrounds a little, they look out of place to me. Everything else though, was pretty good. smile.gif

Mama, just killed a man,
put a gun against his head,
pulled the trigger,
now he's dead.

I know that song. Bohemian Raphsody, Queen. The comic is pretty good, but a little more on the backgrounds, like Hawk said, would be nice.

You know, you once told me my comics weren't funny. I cry myself to sleep every night. crying.gif

It was pretty good so far, but I would think the homeless guy would have used the gun to make the guy give him money, not shoot him right away. Then again, he's not my character, so what do I know about what he would do? tongue.gif I love the use of Queen lyrics.

Dman it! you beat me to using song lyrics in a comic. Although I'd chosen "Over my head".

Anyway, I, being the self-centered narcisitic hypocrit that I am, think this comic is exellent, because the Idea is exellent, and i thought of said idea also.

Evellent!

Well, he's not homeless, he's just really really poor. Also, he had that adrenaline rush reaction and just went on instinct.

Thanks for the praise anyone. The sets will get better, but this comic will only be 6 chapters long (as many verses as there are in the song) so don't expect this to last till after Christmas, school starts tomorrow, so exspect a comic ever 1-2 week, posted on Sunday most likely.

First off, Queen is like, my ultimate favorite band. So kudos right off the bat. Second of all, it was pretty good. I love gritty modern crime stuff, and I love the fact that you're making a comic based on the song. I think it should work well. I'll be watching this. biggrin.gif

I officially love this comic, since Bohemian Rhapsody is my favorite song of all time. It actually looks pretty nice, follows the lyrics well.

Neat, Billybob. My only complaint is, as most people have said, the angles in some of the green-screened shots, but aside from that, it's great! Good picture quality, Bohemian Rhapsody (always a plus)

I'll be waiting for MOAR.

Before you say anything, I don't like the mother either, I can't find my long grey hair anywhere, and I'm sorry that some of the pictures are blurry. I also put the boxes out of order in the 4th panel, but without farther ado, I present chapter 2.

You disgust me, Muffin Boy. tongue.gif

From what you have so far, I think it's good. You are fairly good at developing characters, but I think you should explain more about his life. Pretty much what we have to work with is that he's some poor boy who is looking for money and he has to kill for it. The story from what I see is pretty good. I also like how he explains himself in a sort of poem. But I think that after the first few issues, you should only use that narration/poem a little in each issue. The backgrounds were good, but could use a little work. All in all, 9.5/10. Good work. wink.gif

On a side note, where did you get the baseball bat? Are they already available on Brickarms.com, or did you get it when they were selling them somewhere else?

Lightning, you fail on every possible level for not knowing Bohemian Rhapsody...
