The podcast by indie comics creators for indie comics creators!
Listen to Sequential Underground #83 right now:
Brian John Mitchell
Brian asks: “What comes easier to you… writing comedy or writing tragedy?”
Shawn finds writing comedy much easier. He can improvise the jokes in his comics while he’s drawing the story, but he needs to plan his drama out ahead of time.
Nick is also drawn to comedy. He has to make conscious decisions to include serious moments in his stories whereas writing comedy just flows naturally.
But Brian defaults to tragedy instead of comedy. For him, writing a serious script takes only a fraction of the time that it takes to write a funny one.
So… what about you?
