Web Manhwa. Why “Noodles” and what does it eat with?

Web comics are now at their peak and are growing in power. And I would like to tell you about the Web Manhwa, why in common people she is called Lapsha and what is definitely worth reading.
Web Manhwa. Why “Noodles” and what does it eat with?
What are web comics all about? These are works that are distributed, become known, through the Internet for reading on computers and phones. They are sooo rarely published in paper form, you can even count on the fingers. Of the most famous in Russia, one can recall “Simon’s Cat” (cartoon strip from YouTube), “Ice cream and sadness. Cyanide and happiness” (strip collection), “Horror Archive” (full story).

Almighty, the greatest and … helpless

Almighty comic book characters, whoever they are (aliens, mutants, wizards), this is a real headache for screenwriters.

Omnipotence, combined with helplessness, in certain actions of the character makes him so ridiculous that you wonder why he needs all this unlimited power?
A striking example of such a character is the most famous Marvel wizard, Doctor Strange. His first appearance in the 1963 Strange Tales comic strip he owes to screenwriter Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko. Continue reading

HOW TO MAKE A PLOT FOR A COMIC AND WRITING A SCENARIO

Why do I need a script

In time immemorial, a man picked up a notebook, drew the first page on 12 cells and began to draw a comic book. The main good character in this comic was himself, the main reptile is a bad guy from a neighboring yard. The bad was the head of the mafia, the cannibal and the hired alien, the good was a karate master, knew how to fly, rise from the dead, and generally saved everyone.

The plot of the comic book developed spontaneously, developing dynamically in places, sometimes falling into boring five pages. It can be said with sufficient confidence that in the beginning everything went as it should, in the second half it’s boring, the finale was crumpled and at best took two pages, more often – in the last frame someone shot from a big gun, and all the bastards, along with minor Continue reading
