Mad Cave Studios Brings Madness and Quality to GlobalComix

By KevinPartnerships • Jan 18, 2022 1

When we reflect on 2021, some of our fondest memories are about the new partnerships we’ve built with publishers and creators. Digital comics help break down so many barriers for both the creator and the reader. International shipping and regional distribution costs become a thing of the past, empowering creators to focus on what they do best: making amazing stories.

That’s why we’re excited to announce that Mad Cave Studios is bringing their entire catalog to GlobalComix. You’ve already seen some of their titles – like Crime’s most popular of 2021, Nottingham, and sci-fi’s hit Midnight: Task Force – but now there are even more stories...

Creator Tips and Tricks #6: Camera Shot Types and How to use them

By AhkwardKatCommunity • Jan 11, 2022 0



Along with Camera angles and positions, the last look at Cameras that we’ll take are camera shots. These typically refer to how much and/or how many subjects appear in the shot itself. Just like with angles and positions, the shot or depth of field you choose can impact your storytelling.

Different depths of field have different uses:

  • Long (Wide): Often show the subject from a distance, putting the focus on the environment, location within that environment and scale.
  • Medium: Fall somewhere between and act as a hybrid of a Long shot and Close Up. These allow the reader to focus on the character while still able to see the background.
  • Close: Close shots focus on...

Creator Tips and Tricks #5: Camera Positions- Why they matter

By AhkwardKatCommunity • Dec 28, 2021 0



We learned about Camera Angles in our last Tips and Tricks Article, today we are going to be focusing on Camera Position and the 180 Rule. These two topics go hand in hand, and it’s very important that we understand where to put the camera and when.

Camera Position refers to where the camera is placed -around- the subject. The 180 rule is an imaginary line storytellers use to help keep continuity when doing a multi character / multi subject scene. This helps with any back and forth interaction that may be occurring to help keep things clear and easy to understand. Like any rule, it has times it can be broken for great effect, so take this rule with salt.

Most Popular of 2021: Adventure

By KevinFeatured Comics • Dec 23, 2021 0

For our fourth installment of the Most Popular of 2021 series, we felt it was a good time to take a look at the Adventure genre. The great thing about this genre is that the comics are often unusual and exciting, and while they might have hazards, the fortunate thing for us is that we can live vicariously through the characters on the page.

No freefalls or signing up for a tournament featuring the best fighters in the world required. Just a comfy seat that allows you to slip away into the adventures that unfold in these amazing stories.

Most Popular of 2021: Slice of Life

By KevinFeatured Comics • Dec 22, 2021 0

As we continue through our Most Popular of 2021 series, we wanted to shift the focus to the Slice of Life genre for today's feature. This genre can service a variety of themes, from joyful or serious, to pragmatic or experimentation. What unifies the stories is that they are all grounded in the reality of everyday life.

Not every comic needs a superhero, a zombie outbreak or an alien invasion to make a compelling story, and the 12 titles featured today exemplify that.

Creator Tips and Tricks #4: Camera Angles to make panels more Dynamic

By AhkwardKatCommunity • Dec 14, 2021 0



Cameras aren’t usually something comic and manga creators think about when we are story boarding, doing layouts or pencils. But why is that? In my personal experience, a lot of those who seek mentorship in this way, especially writers, don’t tend to THINK in this way. We see the story in our own heads, typically as a film or animation. We tend to just replicate what and how we see it and call it a day. But how often do we sit down and critically think about what would be -BEST- for the scene we have versus how we see it in our own minds.

Being able to separate your own personal wants from the work and do what would be best for it, even if what you initially imagine is...
