Dear Leo and Abby,

I want to join a hapless group of twentysomethings trying to save their favorite cafe from closure after reading…

DUlggGeW0AMrO0M

Your comic has great characters that get into extra funny shenanigans. From cosplay, to candy dealing, to a crazy quiz bowl, to romance, to body issues, and insecurities. It has everything a twentysomething can relate to! I like how they all hang out and they feel like an honest friend group. There is some jealousy, anger, and sarcasm. There is plenty of love, laughs, and caring too! I really admire the way the group and their story is written.

The characters are really something special. They all are designed in a mindful way with consideration of their personalities. I like how diverse all the characters are and how we are slowly getting to know each one! I think Ebba is my favorite. So cute and buff! I think obviously Barry and Renee need to be together. I love how Sylvia is obsessed with food. I really enjoy how Evelyn is just mean! I am excited to see the turn Treeroot is about to take. That is, it seems like we are about to drive deeper into these characters and their insecurities, starting with Evelyn. I’m excited! I can not wait to learn more.

The art is amazing and the writing is awesome! You two make a great team!

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer

Dear Jonathon Wallach,

I feel inspired to go on an adventure by…

ranger

…but it’s probably better to stay indoors.

I have some warm and fuzzy feelings about your comic because it reminds me of those days going into the woods and fighting imaginary demons (yesterday.) Ranger Pugsly’s Camp for Adventurous Youth is super fantastical and quirky! I love it so much. It’s like reading in on a super dangerous DnD campaign with kids were they all are getting lucky against these highly dangerous monsters. The humor in your work is just awesome. It’s like “of course this is how things are. Not weird at all. doo doo doo.” And Josh is just the poor scared witness to all the madness. I LOVE IT!

I think my favorite moment is when Tim went into the woods and Ranger Pugsly “helped” him get over his fear of spiders! And he had log sandals. And then we learned about Spider Ork preservation. And it was all so amazing and wonderful. And you have so many amazing details in your story! You’ve built characters and settings that are so rich and creative!!

Your art style is awesome. Your backgrounds are detailed. Your characters are on point. It’s all sparkle sparkle love love love. I love it! And I love your twitter comics too. I can really tell when webcomic artists use their experience with animation to create their work. Your comics feel very cinematic and the development of your story is super good. Good good goooooooooood.

KEEP UP THE HARD WORK AND BEING CREATIVE!!

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer

Dear Kristina Stipetic,

I really love…

Your comic is super cool and unique and I am so excited to write you this letter oh my goodness good golly gosh!!! First of all: I love how complex, emotional, confusing, and interesting your comic is. I really enjoy reading each chapter and seeing how the main character interacts with the different robot communities. To see how different these robots are “not efficient” is really cool. Your comic really nicely touches on how complex and diverse oppression can be. How a group can oppress and feed off one or how a system can oppress a population. There is so much emotion and thought that is reflected in your work. I enjoy reading it because it really makes you think about your own feelings about oppression and society. Who am I oppressing? Are my relationships healthy? How can I be the most efficient?

I like how the main character is the outside robot who comes in and inspires/ enacts change. I am excited to find out what their overall purpose is and if they are really doing a good thing destroying the social structure of the groups they visit. And why did they suddenly get a tail?! I love their design and really all your character designs! Your robots and the landscapes feel really organic and natural. Your characters do have robotic characteristics and mannerisms, but they look like organisms that have evolved and always lived in their environments? I am interested in learning more about their origins.

I also want to comment on your color schemes, because they are on point. I love the muted tones and you just make really smart color choices that look great. Your style is very practiced and refined. It is clear that you’ve taken time to perfect your craft and have developed your own language of drawing things.

I could go on and on. I just really love your work and am excited to read more.

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer

Dear Webcomic Artists,

Reading your work has been something that has always excited me. “New Update?! AWESOME” Yet, it took me doing this blog and really looking into what made webcomics happen to truly appreciate/ understand them and their creators. I have followed a lot of careers throughout my reading years and I really admire all the hard work that goes into creating a story that is 100% yours.

You put in hours creating content that people can share and enjoy from anywhere. You don’t know who it may impact and how much it means to people but you put it out there anyway because it means something to you. And that’s what matters, how much it means to you. Because as a reader, I can tell. I can tell if you’ve poured your heart and personality into something. I can also tell when you haven’t and are just trudging along. Either way, you are trying and growing and killing it!

Some of you want to quit and I see it a lot on twitter or when a webcomic page stops updating. It’s really sad, but makes sense. You all have skills that deserve to be recognized and compensated for. Your time is worth something and it’s good to realize that. Whatever your reason to quit or keep going, know that it’s all up to you and your happiness.

I hope that you will keep going. I hope that you continue to find value and joy from creating and sharing. I want you to be fulfilled and to make things you are proud of. And you should be proud! Because you put out content that is amazing and special and unique. Things that publishers or studios may not want to put out there, but you do because you believe in it and you know others may too. And I believe in it!

If you are reading this and are a creator, keep it up! If you are reading this and are a webcomic reader, show your support! Write your own letter, tweet at creators and let them know you love them! They want to hear from you!! Know that they don’t owe you anything! You owe them! And they owe everything to themselves for making great work!!

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer

Dear Bree Paulsen,

I am both blushing and barfing at

I really have been enjoying reading through your comic. The blood and cuteness are just great! Everything has just the right amount of gore mixed with love and care! I really enjoy all the relationships that Patrik has. They are so goofy and endearing. My favorite thing is Patrik’s cat though! 

Your art style is really warm and expressive. You go into such detail with the settings and character and have a great color pallet going on. I also really love how you play around with Patrik’s timeline and show us his past. It really helps with trying to understand how Patrik got to be so chipper! I really enjoy the story you are telling and can not wait to see more!

Please, keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer

Dear Abbadon,

There is a bunch of crazy @#$% that happens in…

Image result for kill 6 billion demons!

Oh GOLLY! First of all: amazing details, amazing colors, amazing character design. Hands down. That could go unsaid. It is a universal truth even YISUN would believe. “Abbadon, is the true artist.” That is what YISUN would say. Truth…but he is a liar…so…Well, I say you’re great so there is that. Second of all: this writing…

golly.

It is so good. So good and I just as so thankful and so happy and so overjoyed at the amount of detail that is in this webcomic you have made with your hands and your brain. You really have constructed a rich and interesting history of the multiverse that your comic takes place in. I find your approach to the “thrown into an unknown world” troupe very refreshing and new. I love how you take inspiration from religion to construct your own Psalms, the Spasms. I love how extensive the Kill 6 Billion Demons Wiki is! It just further allows a reader to dive in and be emmursed in this culture which you are the ultimate creator of. You have obviously put your heart, your soul, and your brain into this work and I just wanted to say with all my heart: I love it. I am in love with it.

Please, keep up the hard work and being creative.

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer

Dear Sarah Goetter,

A wonderful wizardy comic is…

about4Boozle.

Boozle is such an awesome and cute story. I really love the all-age content and hilarious moments between the characters. Boozle and Bitsy make a great team! Boozle’s grumpiness and Bitsy’s enthusiastic nature make them a super funny pair! I love the video game like quest troupes! “Help my son is missing!”  

You have an adorable and expressive art style. Your line work and colors really make the characters stand out! I really like Bitsy’s pink and Boozle’s blue! I am currently catching up with the up-dates, but so far I am really loving this duo!

(Update: I have read up to the most current up-date! Wow! What wacky hijinks! I can not wait for more! 03/16/17)

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer

Bitsy is not so into other people trying to out-anime her.
