    Hey, my friends and I are starting up a webcomic.
    We only got four up so far, but we like to hear some comments about it.

    It relates to games, daily life, randomness, etc. We're still thinking if it should have a single theme or story.

    Its at http://www.bakaforceteam.com/

    Exactly what I was going to suggest. I'd also be careful with drawing continuity. In the last panel of strip #2, Indiana Jones is only drawn with his hat on. I think you did it on purpose for that type of style, but it can be jarring to see an abrupt change in character design. Strip #4 does it too. Nitpicks aside, I like it so far :bigthumb:

    Oh yeah I don't really like the current layout of the webcomic page either, but the person we have doing it is really new to web design, and compared to how we started...its a jump.

    We actually have bigs ideas for the design, but we have to learn how to first.

    Hrm.. that is rather true.
    I'll ask the other people on the webcomic about what they think about the continuity thing...

    But I think I would like more outside opinion on it....

    Does anyone thing the naked character at the end of comics 2 and 4 is somewhat jarring? Or can it be a good way to establish a style...?

    Can i suggest this then;
    http://comicpress.org/

    It's a great theme and all you need is Wordpress installed and voila, you can get it going.

    I like the comic so far, but improvements could be done. Like the latest one i wasn't entirely clear that it was the guy with the bells on his head that had died. If he had his clothes on and the bells, more clearly understood then.

    I'll keep watching :bigthumb:

    it's the character who walks up, they both have antennae, but thats my point. you can't really tell who the hell it's supposed to be. it needs some work, but a much better attempt than most i've seen.

    Oh sweet! I haven't heard of this.
    We'll give it a try. Hopefully our site will look better in a few weeks, lol.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Great to hear and see. Looks great. Look forward to seeing some more updates :bowdown:

    Also, i know you're probably still working on it, but you might like to change around the tags for the comics. Currently if you go "Testing 01" it will show all the comics, as all the comics are tagged with Testing 01. I'm sure you'd like to change that to something more suitable. :bigthumb:
