Peanuts´ Adventure Comic

10 posts in this topic

This is the first time I really made a Comic, I´m not quite sure about the theme, but I classify it as an adventure Comic. I´m not good about names, so it still has no, but maybe I´ll change this one.

The Comic is about 6 adventurers, who try to find a treasure in the desert. The whole plot will be revealed during the Comic.

The Characters are Shaun, the leader, Bob, the driver, Phil, the cook, Jordan, a former soldier who serves as security, and Rod and Paulie, the workers.

It starts with Bob and the introduction.

Part one consists of 34 pictures, part two will have 38, part three is still about to be done. Others might take longer time.

Part 1: Robert-The Transporter

Part 2: Jordan-The Thaiphoon

Part 3: Shaun-The Adventurer

Part 4: Phil-The Cook, The Goose

Please read it and tell me what you think.

Questions are also welcome.

Heh. I saw "Peanuts" and "Comic" and thought "What's a Charlie Brown comic doing in the Lego Adventures forum.?"

But now I have it in proper perspective.

You asked for a critique, so here goes:

I think a little bit is lost in translation, but I'm not going to knock your dialog, as your English is better than my Deutsch. Some of the juxtaposition is a bit puzzling, but that could be a byproduct of me having a hard time following along. I would suggest using straight white for the dialog if you're going to string bits of it together with such thin lines. The green gets lost in the background and confused me a bit there too.

In the future, you might like to experiment with a graphics editing program and putting a few panels together on one page, cropping each to focus on the action that is telling your story. One thing I sometimes do is get close up head shots for dialog said by someone who is important to the scene, but not a focus of the action in the panel.

While I've been building Lego longer than I've been making comics, I've been making (and reading) comics for a very long time, so I take these things seriously. But I'm not going to rip you to shreds, this was an honest effort and not too bad. It just needs some clean up in the translation department, as far as I can tell. ;)

Interesting, you obviously spent a lot of time and effort into this but I had a difficult time following the story line and the conversation... I'd take the good advice from Randal. :wink:

Hahaha, that's what I thought too. Anyways, that's a very cool comic you have made, but I do have to agree with the above two. I cannot wait until the next :tongue: .

Thank you for your comments, I'm sorry I didn't answer earlier.

I also apologize for the confusion with my name, I didn't realize the similarity when I wrote this one. :blush:

I'm doing the best I can on the language, I admit it's not perfect, but I hope you understand better next time. I'll try the best I can anyways.

By "straight white" you mean for speech bubbles and connectin lines, do I get that right? I see that the green is not a good choice, I am trying red for the next one, while there ain't much red in the background. I'm not sure about white...I'll see.

I'll try to focus a bit more next time, I'm just working on it.

Hi, I'm just going to move this across to the Brick Flicks and Comics section. With all the excitement about new sets I must have missed this thread.

Remember, a place for everything and everything in it's place: comics going to the aforementioned forum. :thumbup:

Part 4 is finally up. It's shorter than the other three ones and part five won't be much linger, as I suppose. Sorry for the delay, I'll really try to be faster with the next one. :wink:

Enjoy!
