I hope someone might be able to help me find a theme ideal for comicjams, which I have been searching for for a long time.
Now, a comicjam is a comic made by multiple artists. One person makes page 1, another makes page 2 aso aso – no script, it’s all just made up on the fly. A couple of years back I administrated a site 100% dedicated to comicjams, but because a several different things (like it was a hassel to update), that site is now gone. I have found some “dumps” of it on “The Way BAck Machine”, which you can have a look at, if I’m unclear as to how it works:
Main page: http://replay.web.archive.org/20071229033157/http://www.globalcomicjam.com/index.php Here all the different comics are presented, along with the newest pages of each jam.
If you click on a comicjam, you go to it’s index-page: http://replay.web.archive.org/20071230224316/http://www.globalcomicjam.com/thumbnails.php?album=13 Here you can read what the jam is about, and get a preview of each page currently made.
If you click on a comicpage in a jam, you go here: http://replay.web.archive.org/20071030212745/http://globalcomicjam.com/displayimage.php?pos=-1065 Where the artist can write a little about the page he made, and the viewers can comment.
It’s important that if you click into a comicjam, it’s real easy to navigate back and fourth between the pages of that single story (category).
It would be great if there could be some kind of “sign-up”-button people can click if they want to contribute.
Last year I made a photoshop-sketch of how the new site “could” look… http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f292/udgang99/layout_03.jpg?t=1266840139 ... not that it HAS to look anything LIKE this – lets just call it inspiration.
