QA Dump #whatever why do I even number these things anymore
Hey, I was wondering if you heard the new Menomena album ‘Moms’, and what you think of it. They’ve been on two past top ten album lists if I remember correctly. Also thanks for releasing those lists every year. I always seem to find some new favorite artists in those.
I like it! Mines is still my favorite album of theirs but I am glad they are keepin’ on after one of their members left.
So Dora, Tai and Raven wear plugs, you’re drawing Marten’s mom’s piercings the same way. So is she wearing plugs or is that just how you draw ear bling for women?
You once mentioned The New Pornographers in QC, what’s your opinion of them?
I really like the hair texturing these days. Do you ever run into a spot where adding more detail makes it difficult to finish in a reasonable amount of time, or is it becoming easier to incorporate as your skill level increases?
Built to Spill is coming to my town in two days. As someone who’s never seen them live before, is it worth going?
As a trans woman who began reading your topic, I want to add the chorus of approval in your approach to Claire. You’ve managed a presentation that is sensitive without being saccharine, poised without pretension — she’s lovely, and so are you. Thanks for standing up to the internet trolls who are trying to determine your content, who are trying to tell you they’ll quit reading if this plot happens, or that. I taught the coming out panel of Claire in my 2nd year uni course on trans identities.
Hannelore is in practice asexual because her mental health problems preclude physical intimacy, but I wanted to know what you personally think of her. Would you consider her to be an asexual-heteroromantic, or something else?
Do you plan to be at Emerald City ComiCon
Hanners won’t get on a plane because she’s a germaphobe, but she’ll get on a space station that recycles all of it’s air?
Marten should go for Claire
Hey Jeph. I’m going to try and do a Fay cosplay at NewCon (in Portland) this year. What do you think I should wear? I was thinking just a Bearmonster tee (or a hand-made Coffee of Doom tee), my glasses, my short hair, and a badge that says “Faye”. Lame? or could I rock it, you think? Any better suggestions? I only say the name tag because otherwise, I just look like me. (which is kinda like Fay)
I know a while back you said you read George R R Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, I think before the last book came out. You still read them? What do you think? How about the show?
How often do you surprise yourself when writing/drawing for QC?
Are you planning anything for the 10th anniversary of Questionable Content?
is coffee of doom based off of haymarket? or maybe sam’s? this is such a silly question but i’m just a little ol hampshire student who’s always wondered! (ps i’ve been reading QC since i was in 6th grade. isn’t that crazy?)
Many moons ago, There was a comment about having forgotten to draw Faye’s scars in one strip. Now that you have so many characters, do you use a checklist to help you keep track of the details?
What format do you save each comic in when you upload them? The strips that this pixelated-but-not-pixelated effect that I love, but I’ve not idea how to create it. It’s especially noticeable with character’s hair.
I want to go to Emerald City Comic Con, but I don’t know what day is best. If I only go one day, when do you think is best for someone who is going specifically to see webcomics people?
Are you by any chance going to be at Smith College’s Conbust this year? It would be amazing if you came. I’m a big fan and resident of Northampton. :)
I’ve been reading your comic for quite a while at this point, and when Claire came out to Marten I lost it. Tears, suddenly stuffy nose, the whole nine damned yards. Not just because of how hard it can be to come out, but at Marten’s reaction. Just taking it in, and carrying on as though nothing has changed. That’s the kind of reaction so many trans folk (Myself included) always hope for. The way you’ve written and handled this character development is perfect. Bravi.
Hey Jeph, I’ve been reading your comic for years now and I love it. It’s my favorite webcomic. :) I’m from Massachusetts and I was wondering, are you planning on appearing at any cons near the MA/New England area any time soon?
