It would be so fun to do a comic strip. But it would take so long for one person to make 365 comic strips a year!
So why not pick one theme, and have a bunch of artists write and draw their own strips? Like there could be a character guide where everyone has to use the same characters. And maybe every month there could be a theme that the artists work with. Each person can draw it in their own style and their own jokes.
That way, it doesn’t become a boring stale comic strip like how many others are in the newspaper. And you got lots of variety and talent working on it.
What would make a good comic strip for this model? It would be good to come up with a set of stable characters. Characters who could be put into interesting situtations.
* Characters based on animals
* A family
* Office workers
* Inanimate objects that can speak and walk. (i.e. a toolbox as home, with hammer, screwdriver, etc)
Who’s in? It would be fun to get a large group of people, like thirty people. So then you only have to do one comic a month. No drawing talents required. ANYBODY can join. You can join the new Yahoo group, Common Comic at: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/commoncomic
