Hey, That's My Cape! - Cats and Web Comics

As someone who writes about comics and pop-culture for a living, I get a lot of emails from people asking me to take a look at their “awesome” this, that or the other. It happens more often with independent comics, especially web comics, which is understandable. They have something they’ve (hopefully) put a lot of hard work into and want to make into a success. They don’t have a big name company behind them either so the best approach is the direct approach. Unfortunately, most of them have no idea how to write.

Their emails, that is. To be fair, I'm a tough customer. But there is one sure way to get me to read your comic and I wrote about it in this week's Hey, That's My Cape! at Newsarama. Check it out!

Well needed some what of a good cry (sorry feeling very sappy today) but am now hooked on Gronk.

Hi, I don't know if this is the right place to advertise, but i just started a webcomic and I need the right kind of readers who identify with the subject I'm into. As much as I loved the comic superhero art as a kid I could hardly relate to the characters, and I've wanting to make my own since then, only I lacked the skills and confidence until now. Only three pages till now, but the story's mapped out, and if you don't consider me rude, intrusive, desperate and annoying, then please follow my url and check it out. I have to warn you that it will eventually get a bit NSFW, but I promise, as woman and witch worthy one

Okay, that was rude, I didn't read your post which was somehow directly related to my predicament and generally wrote something in a hurry. Apologies, and please delete my annoying post when you get the time!
