Drunk Duck Awards for Webcomics Wednesday and Super-comic Sunday ReviewsPollDaddy Rating Stars
Welcome to Web-Comic Wednesday, and Super-Comic Sunday Reviews! My online cartoons are posted at http://www.fh7publishing.com where my webcomics promote Animal Welfare. Comics and webcomics are made into more blockbuster Hollywood movies by the day, they may in fact be the new screenplay. My Technorati rating this week is 19831 at Frozen History Seven Publishing out of about 2 million comic blogs. It is listed here: http://technorati.com/blogs/directory/overall/page-821/ I am rated Authority: 105 in Comics Reviews up one popularity rank from last week. It is a big deal in book promotional blog obsession land. I had to beat out 3 small Canadian Comic book stores with celebrity interviews for that vast honor so yea… there is that to think about.

Review: I personally love The Duck because I tried many other online comic posting pages. At first I disliked that “Drunken” was in the title, but that just a joke about how they made it very easy to use. Other pages like Smackjevees that I tried were bad for user friendliness and ease of posting. The Duck is easy to use, and far more accepting of diverse comic styles. They even have a stick-figure comics forum. Plus I read several places that they have a giant table at every Comic Con, and allow their users to sell self published comics, and have a spot at their table if you have a user profile print out. I don’t know if that is true I just have seen it many places like in this book: “There are two kinds of Webcomic groups. The first is the online syndicate. Keenspot, Drunk Duck, and Modern Tales are three examples…This means that if the syndicate buys booth space at a convention you may be able to exhibit here.” Pg 160 In How to Make Webcomics by Brad Guigar et al is an example. So The Duck has yearly awards, and if you post there long enough you are sure to get a few. Then you can mark on your comic that it is “Syndicate Award Winning” which may help sales. As they do the awards, they let people draw comics in association with the awards. http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Drunk_Duck_Awards_2013/5437378/ That is the funniest one I have seen so far. In it bouncers that look like suspiciously like the power addict Blood Elves from World of Warcraft’s Blood Elf starter land beat up characters from the other comics. Pretty funny, props to the gamers! The next funniest one is here http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Drunk_Duck_Awards_2013/5436220/ Where they ask for donations, because” this much free entertainment is not cheap!” I was re-adjusting my donate buttons this week on my webpage so it seemed ultra funny to me. They promote this one pretty highly to users as they log in, so I have been reading it for a while. It is great as a humor comic, done by comic artists for comic artists. It is important for any online website with a chat forum to make their users feel important, and it shows that they notice it. I think it is great, check it out!
