Keeping It Simple for 2018

BattlerockX

Hey everyone! Welcome to 2018!

Your not-so-friendly-neighborhood admin (just ask the forum spammers) is here just to give you a hint as to what to expect from us this year.

You've probably noticed that our news hasn't been very fresh. There've been a few gaps. Sadly, those can't be helped. Things happen outside of the CCC that we can't control. Family emergencies, workplace issues, lack-of-workplace issues, that sort of stuff.

We used to have many contributors. Now we are lucky if we can get one new comic per month. And I don't blame them either, because things do happen that we have no control over.

Our forum has basically become a clogged cesspool of spambots trying to get in and me continually denying them and banning their illegal IP addresses and trying not to ban legitimate IP addresses. And I have to tell you, this is very trying on me. I hate these people! There is no torment on this planet that could be given to these people that would be enough for the torment they dish out.

So for this year, we're going to be keeping it simple. Our custom banners here on the front page will be simple. Very simple. Painfully simple.

We'll have news every so often, when there's something worth saying. And on occasion we'll have a feature article. But please don't expect something new every month.

I wish we could do more... but for right now, that's all we can do with so few people getting involved and way too much to do.

So if there's nothing else between now and next January, enjoy the rest of the year, folks.

Keeping It Together

When doing a comic book series, it's important to remember the world that your characters live in.

When dealing with comic books based in a shared environment such as an MMORPG, you always have to keep in mind the history of the world set up in that MMORPG.

For instance, in the now-defunct City of Heroes MMO, the events of September 11th, 2001 never happened. Instead, the devastating crisis that has changed that world happened in 2002, when an extradimensional alien army invaded and briefly subjugated the whole planet. So to make a "9/11" reference in that world would be meaningless, but making one about the worldwide invasion of 2002 would.

Likewise, the catastrophic event in the world of Champions Online MMO is the Battle of Detroit, which happened in 1992 and was so devastating that it literally destroyed the city and gave rise to a new one called Millennium City.

But there's more to this than just the backstory of that world. You also have to keep track of events going on with other comics based in the same world. The events that happen in your comic don't just happen in a vacuum. They potentially have an impact on other comics.

For instance, the events told in the "Obey" storyline in the "Justice-Knights" series had an impact on characters in the Guardians of the Dawn hero group, bringing the founding members together for the first time in a story that would be told in the "Guardians of the Dawn - 2012 Special". Likewise, the events told in the "House of Sothis" storyline in "The Crucible" would have a direct effect on Furia Powers, with the aftermath being seen in her own series, "Furia and the Guardians".

This is where cooperation and collaboration with other comic creators come in. Keeping track of the various events and storylines between different creators keeps the continuity of each of their comics intact, and thus expanding on the world they all live in. This is where resources such as those available to comic creators here come in.

The world is a huge stage, and when you have multiple "actors" performing on that stage, it's important they are aware of each other and what they are doing. Keeping it all together makes the performance on that global stage that much greater, and makes the performers on that stage that much more important.

Presented by the C.C.C.

Cityofcomiccreatorslogo3.jpg


The City of Comic Creators was founded in early 2008, and was initially created to promote comic book creations by the fans and players of the City Of Heroes/City of Villains/Going Rogue franchise. This is done by promoting the creation of comic books, and educating the player-base on the how's, the why's and the where's of comic book creation, publication, and representation.

The CCC has since expanded its scope to include fan-made creations involving ALL MMOs in the hopes of providing a resource for players to enjoy fan-made creations, and also for comic creators themselves to develop their skills to create the best comics their talent and imagination can provide.
