Comic for Wednesday, Jul 15, 2015


Posted July 15, 2015 at 1:01 am

If this little adventure with Writer's Block has taught me anything, it's that I enjoy a bit more "jumpy" style of storytelling. As in, we don't see every last thing that happens, but we go right to key moments and everything inbetween is implied and/or left to the imagination.

It very much reminds me of Lit Brick (link is to first comic), a comic that spoofs classic literature in a very abridged fashion (I imagine unabridged Beowolf would take a while in comic strip form).

Granted, this wouldn't work for normal EGS, but I can see myself doing more stuff like this in EGS:NP. I think it would be one of the better ways I could handle Ellen and Nanase mystery solving something not related to the main plot, for example, though maybe a bit less abridged than "recruited -> unexplained fight -> somehow resolved". I mostly mean it would just be the highlights and very tightly edited.
