A Second Year   20 comments

Friday May 13th is going to be the second ‘Dialogue Free Comics Day’, so it’s time to get your brains thinking visually. Too often, when writing my webcomics (Milton’s Life and  DJ Bogtrotter), I forget that this is primarily a visual artform and so to emphasise that, I’ve set myself the challenge of posting a dialogue free comic on that day and I’d like you to join me. If you don’t post on a Friday, then just make it whatever day is nearest, as long as it’s before Friday 13th. I will link to the webcomics that have joined in, tweet about their involvement and, on the day, advertise it on the blog beneath my comic. If you do the same, it’ll be a fun way for us to promote each other’s webcomics.

If you want to join in just email me at noel@miltonslife.com or leave your details in the comments section. Please list your webcomic and the day that you’ll be posting your dialogue-free comic. I will email anyone who has signed up nearer the date to remind them.

Cheers

Noel Curry

P.S. It is allowed to have text on signs or sound effects in the comic, but extra kudos will be given to those who keep their comics completely letter free.

Dear All,

For no reason other than I felt like it really, I’ve decided that Friday May 14th 2010 is going to be the inaugural “Dialogue Free Comics Day”. Too often, when writing my webcomic (DJ Bogtrotter), I forget that this is primarily a visual artform and so to emphasise that, I’ve set myself the challenge of posting a dialogue free comic on that day and I’d like you to join me. If you don’t post on a Friday, then just make it whatever day is nearest, as long as it’s before Friday 14th, I will link to the webcomics that have joined in, tweet about their involvement and, on the day, advertise it on the blog beneath my comic. If you do the same, it’ll be a fun way for us to promote each other’s webcomics.

If you want to join in just email me at noel@djbogtrotter.co.uk or leave your details in the comments section. Please list your webcomic and the day that you’ll be posting your dialogue-free comic. I will email anyone who has signed up nearer the date to remind them.

Cheers

Here are a couple of examples from other webcomics who often do dialogue free comics.
