Once again, there is pain, I bring flame, I bring cold. I'm the blood red sandman, coming home.

@  Evac : (23 July 2017 - 06:26 PM)

Yo, when Team Skull meets you, they don't even greet you!

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 July 2017 - 06:23 PM)

Yooooooo

@  Evac : (23 July 2017 - 06:15 PM)

Yo.

Once more, I have returned. w00t.

Macross Delta sucks but I listen to the music anyway.

And dealing with me.

Don't forget the rock music and D&D.

@  unluckiness : (23 July 2017 - 07:52 AM)

He certainly doesn't have the time to be employed full-time what with all the war-stoking, dinosaur fossil burying, pornographing and etc

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 July 2017 - 06:44 AM)

Look, I'm TRYING, okay?

@  Bass X0 : (23 July 2017 - 06:40 AM)

The devil is a part-timer!

@  Nevermore : (23 July 2017 - 06:32 AM)

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 July 2017 - 08:27 PM)

It is very irritating that no one seems to agree on whether the word "namesake" refers to the thing that came first or the thing that came second.

@  2017 : (22 July 2017 - 07:19 PM)

I'd like it, but I really don't have the cash or the justification.

@  Paladin : (22 July 2017 - 02:48 PM)

Anyone still need a Chaos on Velocitron set? Found one at TRU today...

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 July 2017 - 01:27 PM)

He REALLY likes blowing stuff up.

Nothing can be more awkward than the crotch rubsigns.

@  Bass X0 : (22 July 2017 - 11:28 AM)

well, they had to go somewhere.

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 02:54 AM)

TR Quake's shoulder symbols are very awkward looking

@  Kalidor : (21 July 2017 - 10:58 PM)

You just don't appreciate the speed of a solid state drive until you have to use an old laptop with an old spinning drive

If there's at least one, you can army-build.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2017 - 07:25 PM)

Are there even enough toys of him to collect?

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 July 2017 - 04:21 PM)

A nerd.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

...or maybe I'm the bitter one?!  Oh no.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:32 PM)

And I don't even mean that everyone should love it all. But it does seem to bring the angrier ones in from the lurking.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

It's these reveals that always remind me how exceptionally bitter a large portion of toy collectors are on other forums.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 July 2017 - 07:06 PM)

SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

As someone who's not really used to posting images, much less the 30+ that I'm thinking of now, I'm unsure of the best way to go about it. Usually I just use Photobucket, but I figure that wouldn't be the best way to go in this case.

(Or maybe it is, I dunno. Is that unheard of?)

I looked at some of the other comics posted here, and they all seem to use deviantart. So I signed up, and holy god is that site not intuitive on any level. I eventually figured out how to create thumbnail image/links, but I had to re-size the images so much that even enlarging them left them too small. I dunno, I'll figure that out.

So basically what I'm asking is, what's the best way to go about this without coming off obnoxious? Post a couple regular-sized images with a link to a DA gallery? A handful of thumbnails with a link? The entire comic in thumbnails? 15 posts with 2-3 full-size images per post?

Hmm. I think the most effective way of handling it would be to start small -- say a single post with the first 5 pages. Then, a few days later, 1.) add on another five as a reply so people following the thread can see it immediately, 2.) edit the original post to include links to the new images so that thread newcomers can browse it all in a single sitting if they want, 3.) edit the thread subtitle with the date and new page numbers.

I know I usually post a page at a time when I post pages, but personally I love it when people post multiples pages in one post. It gives a good sense of how the storybook is going to develop.

I say if you have an entire issue ready to go, I'd do the five or so pages if you feel those five pages are strong enough on their own. There's nothing I hate more than a comci plotted slowly, that's broken up into a ridiculous ammount of parts. I'd say, present the story how you planed it. If its meant to be one 30 issue comic, do it. If you meant for it be be read in parts of 5, do it. I personally don't think any particular way is more "obnoxious" than the other.

Thanks for the advice, guys. I think I'll do as Nick suggested and post the whole thing just because of what it is; it's not some ongoing story that I'm continuing, but a 12-year-old comic I drew in high school that I'm posting mostly as a goof. It's black-and-white and on lined notebook paper, so people might get a kick out of it in one sitting, but I doubt anyone would be following along for multiple installments. icon-hotrod.gif

Awesome. Be sure to post the link here when you have it up! Goof or no I'm always pumped to see what people have been up to.
