The stuff I'm posting is a science fiction story based comic, but I'm also working on a comic that is set in a made up world, that's historical based rather futuristic. And I have a script for a comic that is set in a fantasy alternate-history world.

That's pretty much my range.

Although I did start creating a gag-a-dayish webcomic about filking and filkers once. That was before Black Flag bushwhacked me. So, as always with me, the small simple project got abandoned so that I could do the big one.

If I had access to top-flight art, I would go with a fantasy epic.

Ok, I'll wait for you to become as good as Rob Liefeld.

Had to do some research on this...so apparently he is quite controversial? Not sure I get why, is the idea his art was very over-the-top in the 90s and this was very popular but has many detractors?

If I wasn't doing my Steampunk comic or my comic about convention runners... I'd probably do a straightforward superhero comic.

Ooh, or maybe something about con men, ala Hustle or Leverage.

CN I've gathered from previous posts you're a history buff like me. My interest in doing a history based comic has only progressed to the fantasizing stage, but that would be a fun project. I think I would make mine a rough following of American history with the usual signposts but I would throw in the off-beat, unusual, peculiar and bizarre. Lack of time and artistic ability to carry it prevents it moving from fantasy, but it's a hell of a good fantasy.

You've probably Googled it by now, but filking is like fan fiction, but for singing. Take your favourite song, rewrite the lyrics so it's about Game of Thrones or Harry Potter or whatever, and sing it with all your friends because everyone already knows the tune.


Er.

The "fanfic" style activity described above is the largest and best known portion of filking activity, being an easy entry point into songwriting and performance and the most accessible form of filking to non-filkers, and basically the part of filking that grew beyond the filking community.

But I get cranky when people who define/describe filk in a way that leaves me out of it.

Most of my songs use original tunes and original concepts. Out of the seventy or so I've written there isn't a single one that both borrowed a tune and was based on someone else's intellectual property. So, no, it isn't about being musical fanfic'ers.

It's about being musically creative in a fannish way.

Filkers tend to define/describe filk as the "folk music of sf fandom" Folk, in this instance, refering to a community/grass-roots aspect, rather than a particular style of music.

Ah, well, I figure if I get cranky as easily as all that, I probably deserve to be cranky. Embarassed
