High Comedic Value is a weekly webcomic that explores the what-ifs of a tall, dark and sarcastic twentysomething.
Seriously, what is this comic?
This series is structured more like sketch comedy than a traditional comic strip. The two main characters play different roles in each comic, with little to no continuity.
Beyond this framework, this webcomic is currently developing its creative voice, so the style will change on a frequent basis. I’m on a mission to figure out what works, what might work and what fails awesomely.
Audience feedback is a big part of this project. If you like something you see, let me know using the “like” buttons. If you don’t like something, try re-reading it until you get the joke. Like sketch comedy, this is an interactive process. (See how I continued that literary device throughout this section? That was intentional.)
So, do you do this as, like, a job for like, money?
First of all, don’t say ‘like’ so much. You sound like you’re 12. Second of all, no. This is primarily a hobby and just aims to inject some humour into the world. Hence, the lack of pop-up ads, donation buttons, and street canvassers.
That said, I am active on the comic convention circuit and you can regularly purchase books, prints and more fun HCV products at one of my tables at a show.
How do you thi-
Sir, I’m sorry. You’ll have to speak louder if you want your question to be heard.
*clears throat* How do you think of the ideas for your comics?
Better. The majority of my comic ideas are based on situations that I have encountered during the past week. If you know me in real life, you may very well find your thoughts and inadvertent one-liners on the main page. Isn’t friendship awesome?
How can I keep in touch with you?
There are some pretty prominent social media icons on the right side of the main page. Seriously, I don’t know how you missed it. If you’re asking this question, I’m having serious doubts if we’re ready to make this relationship Twitter-official.
We rushed into this.
I am active on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and email and will immediately respond to messages that do not ask me for money.
