This is the first strip of 2 of one of the ideas that I am considering for my next comic.

The concept is/was that there would be a whole season of F1 racing, with stories in between which gave purpose to each race, and the stars of each story would change. The characters in question would be all cameos and would still be given points and whatnot even if they wernt the starts in the story arc and would still wish to "watch" each race in order to see where their own character would finish (Sorta like a Fantasy F1 game. If anyone has played Batracer, then that is what I was aiming to achieve but in sprited form)

The thing is, it wsnt until spriting it did I find out that it wasnt as clear cut as I thought and that the races themselves seemed a bit...flat. Hence why I stopped working on the idea for a bit (I already had to rip the sprites and backgrounds myself and put them together).

In this one I tried to add a commentator in the style of Murray Walker. Anyone who knows who he is will agree he is just outrught legend. If you dont, look him up both on Wikipedia AND Youtube. The thing is, the greatest comic writer in the world couldnt do him justice as his commentary is mainly tone (which a comic cant convey) and it just seems here it points out the obvious

However, I changed that for the next strip, as well as added a proper info graphic, which seemed better. I will post it tomorrow, along with details on other ideas, maybe. Feel free to comment/slate before then though

Honestly, this comic is rather boring

its true, you need better action and more drama. plus having them wearing helmets make it hard to see who is who

Yeah, that was the problem. Seemed a good idea until it was sprited =(

Funny you should say that with the helmets as originally I wasnt going to have them, but found fitting characters in was a bit of a nightmare. They also conceal facial expressions too

F1 Sprites Where did you get those good looking F1 cars sprites? Can you send them for me, please? I want to use them for my own F1 comics.
