Hi guys, I've never really had impartial feedback so I'm eager to see what an outsider would make of my comic, Wild Horse!

www.wildhorsecomic.com



I originally wrote the first comic (above) as a joke and sent it to some friends at work. They found it hilarious and encouraged me to do more.

Rather than give a description of it, I think you'd better find out for yourself. All I'll say is it's probably pretty unique.

One thing: I can't draw. Rather than trying to sharpen my skills, I'm just embracing it. It's a style and it's unique. Plus, I think it makes people more inclined to submit their own Wild Horse comics which I totally encourage.

Once again I would really appreciate any and all feedback you could give me on first impressions, criticisms or anything else. I really have no idea how you guys will take this. (P.S: If you want to submit a Wild Horse comic of your own I would love it and give all proper credit etc.)

The humor is above average and the art generally gets the job done.

The only particular problem I had with it is that sometimes the print is a bit small. When you go with four horizontal panels here, for instance, I find the print a little too tiny to read comfortably:

On the other hand, with three horizontal panels like you did here, the text seems larger and I didn't really have trouble with it:

You might consider taking down and redrawing the strips on lined notepad paper.

So would you say I should try and only do comics that finish in 3/6/9 frames? How would I get around this?

As in redraw them on non-white paper? I kinda stuck with the whole lined paper thing to keep an authentic feel. Do you think I'm better off just going black felt tip pen on white paper? I admit it would be cleaner...

Felt tip pen on plain white paper gets my vote. Not sure if I understand the "authentic feel" thought -- the notebook lines detract, they don't add value. Just my opinion.

Okay... this is one of the most ridiculously funny and cute and comics I've seen in a long time. The crude drawing style makes it all the more better!

Keep up the good job. Very Happy

Well, I don't think the number of panels matters, exactly; just keep in mind that having the font at a legible size is important, and if you're going to shrink your drawing down more for a certain comic, you'd probably want to draw the lettering larger than usual to compensate.
