Looks like our man Bashir is coming to GOT

*screams like a ferengi*

Hope he kept those holodeck costumes

DS9 holo deck costumes always cracked me up. What were Bashir and OBrien going to emerge as next? (and could you blame them for their outlandish antics? You know you’d do the same…)

Serious question for everybody making comics right now:

dinkydau:

mortalityplays:

When established creators talk about changes in the industry decentralising audiences and reducing the scope and scale of ‘success’, how does that affect your sense of ambition?

Do you think the major stardom of certain past cartoonists is out of reach for…

Exactly this. If there ever was an established “on-ramp” to being a professional cartoonist, it wasn’t very accessible to most people with the ambition. And now we have basically everyone able to access the on-ramp — the Internet — but the destination isn’t defined. A lot of comics creators I know basically have to consider getting something out the door a win. The way people consume comics (especially webcomics), you’ll get eyes but you’ll be lucky to ever get feedback of any kind, or any real knowledge that someone enjoyed what you did. You just can’t depend on that - you are honestly lucky if anyone says anything to you.

So to a large degree, for those of us on the on-ramp, you have to be able to be happy just knowing that your work is out there, and anything past that — ‘success’ however you define it — is kind of a bonus.  Sure, there are things you can do to try and tip odds in your favor, but there’s no Benevolent Publishing Editor looking for you to give you that big break.

Being able to make your own success has given everyone a chance, but has also reduced the odds. So…come what may.
