Title: BrontoZine
Post by: Mothra on June 21, 2010, 12:32:28 PM
Folks we should do a zine. I'm one hundred percent down to manage and produce this thing but I want to get a feel for how much interest is out there. I'm aware that Talking Time puts out one of these yearly and I think Fortinbras as well, and both seemed pretty awesome to me.

I figure we'd cover any and all things that are interesting to us, regardless of focus, throw some sweet original comics in there, maybe some fiction/short stories if people are down for that, and then print it and send it off to anyone who wants a copy.

It'd be fun! Also hopefully hilarious and worth keeping around.

LET'S GET SOME IDEAS UP-INS

Just write about/draw/take a picture of whatever you want and send it to me and I'll bundle it all together into something sexy.

ALSO

I am taking suggestions on a better name than "Brontozine" which is not necessarily bad but could potentially be better

In on this, if nobody has any objections; I can keep the furry shit out of it and write an article about open-world hijinks, or produce something that retains my affinity for anthro characters but holds more mass appeal (diary comics feat. funny-animal cartoon characters in the style of something like this (http://www.fourhman.com/blog/archive/2010/02/bw-sunday-scan-1.html), for instance).

Niceeee you're all in

Punchy that'd be fine. I mean if you wanted to write something on furridom that'd be interesting to folks who aren't furries then that'd be cool, but yeah, I don't see anything wrong with doing a straight-up comic with furry characters a la every cartoon/comic strip ever.

I'd do what I could for it. Not 100% sure what I could do but I'd do it, 70%!

Expressing interest, and also doubt.

I can write something about roleplaying.

Lobst, do more Lobster Bee comics for the zine.

I can write about things if you tell me what to write about and for how many words. Otherwise I will probably lose interest.

Bongo I'm going to need you to produce a short list of things that have elicited some kind of positive emotion (however minor) from you as of recent (from which I will concoct a good topic)

Be v. specific as to what it was exactly about the thing that you enjoyed.

Oh, this again.  Yeah we do this like once a year.

If you want me to be in you'll have to beg for my participation as usual.  Beg for it!!

just spitballing at the mo, but here's one idea: Fortinbras and R^2 show you how to use basic-assed computer person cooking skills to make an haute motherfucking meal.

Yesss

Alright, looks like we got enough folks to consider this thing more than covered for content. I've got a post-apocalyptic rubber-suit monster story I've been picking away at that I expect to get finished by the thing this is released. For length, there's no limitation, but if you're looking for a solid number then let's go with four to six paragraphs.

I'm going to say mid-September is our deadline, with the formatting itself finished by the end of the month. I'll make a proper topic once I create/receive some cover art and we settle on a name (Godzilline's clearly the best right now). I'm always around to proofread anything or give some feedback, and I assume the same is true for the rest of you. Let me know here or through PM if there's any concerns/questions/┐('~`;)┌ w/e

I think they last time we did this, we got bored and there was no profit in it, so we stopped.

Wait... how could anybody think there was profit in a zine in the first place? :wat:

He means the Mayor game, and Arc's website.

The difference is that my thing is significantly less ambitious and unquestionably low-commitment and hopefully pretty dang satisfying once it comes out. Figure we should start off slow, work our way up.

Anyways I got in Bongo's submission last night via PM so we're starting to get some stuff in. I'll bump this when I get some artwork up and/or evidence of Niku's planned involvement.

In unrelated news, I just built a 1:1 scale model of the Great Pyramid out of some of Niku's Procrastrophies.
