New column: STILL/MOVEMENT

7 May

by Mike Hansen

I’ve got a new column over at The Geekiary called STILL/MOVEMENT. I’ll be posting a lot over there from now on. Hope you like it.

I accepted the invitation to join the Geekiary team because the site has a great group of people and is incredibly well-managed by site owner Angel. The site’s massive audience doesn’t hurt, either.

I’m not giving up on All Day Comics: I’ll keep this site open for other stuff. But expect much more regular posts over at the Geekiary. Hope you follow me over there and check it out.

 

Goodbye, 2012

31 Dec

by Mike Hansen

goodbye 2012Another year down already? Man, where does the time go? I miss the days when I could pack in a zillion things in one day and collapse at night, instead of just trying to make progress on a few things until the day’s over. Is this what old people feel like?

I was thinking about writing what I thought of comics in 2012, but I honestly don’t have much to say. (Which probably explains the lower frequency of posts on this site in the last several months!) There were a lot of good comics in 2012, and a few great comics, and way too many comics that could have (and should have) been better. The bottom line, though, is that I LOVE COMICS, and that’s never gonna change. Putting words and pictures together as a flexible, hybrid storytelling language is the most creative and direct way of communicating and entertaining people. Thanks to the internet, more creators are reaching more people. With digital publishing and print-on-demand, the costs and barriers of entry for both producers and consumers of comics are dropping. It’s only gonna get better, folks.

(And VERY SOON, I’ll be sharing some NEW comics work of my own. I’m finishing a script for a story that’s being drawn RIGHT NOW. Can’t wait to share it.)

Have a happy and safe New Year’s celebration, everyone!

Donations now welcome

5 Dec

by Mike Hansen

Puss in BootsOn the advice of readers and friends, I’ve added a Paypal donation button to the site. Up until now, all work on All Day Comics has been done for free, in my spare time – which, unfortunately, takes time away from other paying work. If you like what you see, and would like to see more posts (and more often), please consider showing your appreciation by donating – all donations will fund additional work on ADC and allow for more opportunities to share more stuff with you. Thanks very much for reading!

Incidentally, today’s my birthday: donations would be especially valued today! In fact, for every donation in the next 24 hours – of any dollar amount – I will write an extra post on this site within the next seven days. Heck, I’ll even dedicate a post to a donator upon request (please include a contact email, and your website if you want me to share it*). Thank you!

An explanation and apology to readers

16 Oct

by Mike Hansen

After a productive first couple of months, ALL DAY COMICS has been updated in fits and starts for a while now. Why? Well, it’s all my fault. I’m the one who does all of the updating, regardless of who contributes to the site. I’d originally envisioned ADC as an Ain’t It Cool-style site about comics, with contributions from several folks supporting my schedule. For various reasons, it hasn’t quite worked out that way, so thanks for sticking with the site despite the irregular posting.

So, WHY has ADC been updated so infrequently lately? Well, the main reason is that I have less free time: after being out of comics for a decade, I’m finally doing some professional comics work again. First off, I’ve been doing freelance research work for Marvel. I’ve helped out in an unofficial capacity in the past (there are a handful of Marvel books that credit me in the Special Thanks section, most recently X-MEN: BISHOP’S CROSSING), but now I’m getting to do paid research, which is really exciting and is a great outlet for my otherwise useless nerdy comics knowledge. (Since Marvel books have a long production schedule, you won’t see my pro credits in them for a while, though.)

I’m also in the process of creating some cool comics with some amazingly talented artists, and I hope to be able to share some of that work in the next few months. I can’t say much yet, except that we think we’re creating some exciting and original work, and I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks.

In the meantime, I’ll do my best to keep ADC chugging along as best I can. I’ve got a few more things to post in the next week or two – and very soon, an amazing interview that Orion conducted down at Comic-Con.

Onward!

Off to Comic-Con!

Sorry for the lack of recent posts, folks – I’m putting together several articles and interviews that will be going up after I return from Comic-Con.

Site contributor Orion will be there, too, and will be bringing back some cool stuff to share. Can’t wait!

See you next week, everyone!

A quick heads-up

UPDATE: It looks like I may have misread this – Facebook is charging for a service to make posts stay in subscribers’ feeds longer. Well, that’s dumb.

HEADS-UP: If I understand this correctly, Facebook has changed the way Pages you “Like” work. They are now requiring pages to pay in order for all their subscribers to see posts (otherwise only about 10% see them). You can make sure you do not miss any All Day Comics updates by going to the official FB page, selecting the “Liked” button, and then selecting “Show in news feed” from the menu that pops up. You can also get updates by signing up for ADC’s RSS feed or following ADC on Twitter.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled Thursday…
