So I heard you guys like quests. Just a silly thing I put together to do aside from my webcomic.

I run it exclusively through tumblr, but I'd appreciate feedback if you have it.

Bandit's Quest is a quest-style comic that stars a bandit named Anda Bandit, who has recently just joined up with a corgi mage named Corwin Frostpaw.

I will be switching the format up a bit when this prologue act is completed, but really that's just making it more traditionally comic-booky. It will still have animations as well.

I told myself I was going to read a few pages and then suddenly I've blown through all of them. Seriously, this is awesome! Good work!

Thank you! I certainly hope you guys will submit commands. Anonymous commands are always welcome.

Don't say that.
Don't you EVER say that.
Have us not suggest, have us not suggest for as long as you can.
Cherish it. You gotta cherish it. You do.

No, I'm serious, you're barking for VULGAR suggestions that will make the characters explore areas of their sexuality never even VENTURED before.

Selective comment ignoring does tend to be necessary for sanity.

Just finished reading this a little bit ago, and I'm impressed. It may be too early to say anything really substantive about your quest, but it's certainly getting me excited. If the rest of the quest turns out as good as what you've got so far, I'd fully expect it to wind up as popular as Prequel. Maybe even as popular as Homestuck itself, if you play things right.

Since you appear to be a new author (to tgchan, at least), would you consider making an ATA post? Only if you're so disposed, of course. [Note to self: Compile ATA questions to make them easier to find and pick from]

Also, fair warning, I'm falling for Anda. :I I mean, look at this!
That's adorable! She's just crying out to be snuggled!


Corwin: Snuggle Anda!

I am not sure what ATA is, but I would be glad to do one of... those. Just help me understand what it is I should do.

I appreciate the feedback. I am just having a lot of fun with it, and I am going for something a little looser than my regular comic, Cosmic Dash (http://cosmicdash.com/). I actually have a neat little twist in mind for BQ to play up the meta-aspects, and I an excited about it.

I would also TOTALLY love to know how to get this up there alongside the ranks of Prequel and Homestuck.

ATA is "Ask the Author." Just scroll down to the thread with the microphone, there's plenty of questions posed by the various members on the site for quest authors to answer at will.

As for popularity, just keep at what you're doing. It's too early to offer any specific criticisms (besides "oh my god this is adorable") but you have everything in place right now to grow a sizable fan base as you move on. Your art and writing certainly have the charm for it.

>I would also TOTALLY love to know how to get this up there alongside the ranks of Prequel and Homestuck.

Maintain a schedule. Interact with your readers, hit cons if you can. Give your audience place to socialize. Don't be afraid to build memes, they're what ultimately ensure your intellectual property gains new followers through word of mouth.

Little time-waster games that you give away will help spread the word too. Look at what all the successful webcomics have done, because largely that's what Homestuck is doing too.

Some of those sound doable. Unfortunately I am too poor for cons, but I will see what else I can do. As for the socialization aspect, any suggestions?

Off the top of my head: Forums, Twitter use, group on Steam, Formspring page, and maybe even weekly Skype chats once there's enough followers to warrant it.

I'll wait on the forums. I'll probably use my existing twitter and formspring accounts. I don't get the use of a steam group, but I'd support one if it were made.

My twitter is https://twitter.com/#!/hpkomic, and my formspring is http://www.formspring.me/hpkomic

Anything you guys want to know about the comic or something else?

What's the stance you take on suggestions? Doing it like a game or with an eye for narrative?

Basically, I am getting a narrative in place, but I follow suggestions as diversions. For the most part I eventually get things back on track.

That is quite the spiffy layout! You're going to upload the prologue, right?

I'll probably keep the prologue tumblr-exclusive.

I'm liking what you're doing with this, but I hope you're prepared for suggestions including sex and lesbians because that's what tgchan specializes in.

Should I be worried about this? Is this some sort of exploit?


You can use a number of services through the current system. I don't even really look at e-mail addresses, so your horrible secrets are your own.


I am sure I can find some comical way to deal with these sorts of things.

I recently got a mention on Nerf Now, but he said people should ask for fanservice.

Is this not enough?
