HEY! KIDS! COMICS! : Michael Furious’ DOGS : February 23rd, 2009



My friend Michael Furious has started a fun project online called DOGS that he is hoping to fuel with some audience participation. He is going to base what happens in the comic on comments received from the audience as to where they think the story should go.

That man can draw! The easiest way to view it is as a Flickr slideshow here. Do yourself a favor, go check it out, and then give him some feedback on where you think the story should go.

Here are the rules to participate.

Here is the spiel from Michael…

I’d like to invite everyone to participate in a comic experiment I’ve just started, called Dogs.

The idea is based a little off of some meditations on Charles Dickens public readings, the nature of the internet, and just wanting to have a little fun. The comic is not.

So what I’ve done is draw the first 27 pages of story, which provides a cast of characters, a setting, and several possible plot devices and hooks. The hope is that you, the reader, will drop by and leave comments. Who you think is who. What you think is what. What will happen next? And so on.

Then I draw more pages of story and around and around it goes.

The full “rules”, and story, are here.

(I know, I know. LJ is made of blinking lights and fail. So is my knowledge of code.)
