Kaitou Experiments in Web Comics for Webcomics Wednesday, Super-comic Saturday, and Mega-comic Monday Reviews

Welcome to Web-Comic Wednesday, Super-Comic Saturday, and Mega-comic Monday Reviews!  Comics and web-comics are made into more blockbuster Hollywood movies by the day, they may in fact be the new screenplay.  Review blogs are super popular, and comics are a near infinite source free books to review.  My Technorati rating this week is 18139 at Frozen History Seven Publishing out of about 2 million comic blogs. It is listed here: http://technorati.com/blogs/directory/entertainment/comics/page-12/  I am rated Authority: 103 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.

Personal Note:  I was pretty intimidated looking at Voltaire’s illustrated fiction books, and comics.  My last blog entry was a review of Voltaire’s new illustrated book/comic at http://voltaire.net/store/.  He is a great artist, and his work has a great deal of a web-presence.  His books and animated short films are like moving paintings from a museum.  So I had to remind myself that comics and web comics are a vast and diverse world where ANYTHING can be called a comic.  As long as it is an image that can be slapped on the net, it is a web-comic if you say it is one.  In fact many paper comics and web comics struggle for a minimalist art style.  One of the more stunning examples of the minimalism is Kaitou Experiments in Web Comics, a stick figure comic.  The Duck has an entire stick figure forum on their page.  Yet Kaitou takes it to new limits by sometimes barely drawing a dot as his character. It is a true experiment in anti-art as art.  http://www.kaitou.org/comic/comic/sunday/

Reviews:   Anything can be a web comic, and it is not only museum quality paintings that count as comic strips.  Kaitou boldly shows off the lack of limits with his stick figure comic Kaitou Experiments in Web Comics.  It is self described as this:  “Kaitou is just playing around with ComicPress since one of his customers is using it. Don’t expect any real content. For now, it’s sort of an “art vs. artist” strip – at least until the artist decides what he wants to do – or an irreverent look at webcomics and what could (or shouldn’t) go into them.” He even has a merchandise page where the dot talks, but says nothing.  http://www.cafepress.com/kaitou  This comic makes constant jokes about being a bad stick figure comic, and owns the concept with full dignity.  http://www.kaitou.org/comic/comic/why-not-stick-figures/ There are many reasons to try for a minimalist style, and choice of style is a personal decision.  It can be intimidating to do any internet drawing, because art tools are an infinite game of style and expense.  As soon as you do a comic, you see ten more done with more art, more dialogue, more tools, and a way higher production budget.  Yet there is room to move in any direction, and Kaitou takes pride in showing you that as long as you did more than a dot that says nothing you are not at the low end of the internet art spectrum.  Plus it is a hilarious comic, and for that I thank Kaitou.  I say it is great, check it out!
