|The Ryanization of Comics
||[Oct. 28th, 2005|11:55 am]
My road to The Ryans began when I was working with both Ryan S. and Ryan N. for different reasons. Ryan S. was contributing to the cartoonist's choice awards, which I was editing, while Ryan N. and I were working on a Welton Colbert/Whispered apologies crossover for Comixpedia. When that all-Ryan comic jam appeared on Comixpedia, Joe Zabel l commented "Excellent! The Ryanization of webcomics proceeds apace!"|
If only he knew.
At that moment, I was thinking about joining forces with Ryan N. and S. in some way, but wasn't sure what to suggest. And then, out of the blue, Ryan S. made this suggestion. And it was a good one. And the Ryanization is coming to fruition.
Jealousy is already rearing it's ugly head. It was suggested that Kean Soo start his own name-based comic collective, and call it KeanSpot. Also, rumor has it that Edward J. Grugg III is taking applications for The Extraordinary League of Grugs. Zampzon from Digital Strips suggests that if all of the Scotts in webcomics joined forces, it would be a powerful force.
But all of the jealousy is not unfounded, because The Ryans is already working. Ryan Wilson (The editor of Moo Cow Fan Club Magazine) and I started talking through The Ryans, and I ended up doing illustrations for the next issue. The Ryanization extends to print!
