The WAR! is over…

The webcomic WAR! is over.  It ended last night when the remaining participants Life’s a Witch and Slightly Off Topic fell in battle leaving my nemesis Union of Heroes the sole survivor – and victor.

Epic Fail & Apple of Discord died together when Ant Guy turned out to be a suicide bomber.  Who knew?  Sadly this means I have no victory to celebrate and will not be making cartoons in my underwear.  Disappointed parties – you know who to blame!

For me the contest was a push to get out there in the webcomic community.  Prior to the contest I barely knew another webcomic artist.  Now I have met a great deal and consider several to be good friends.

With Epic Fail being so new there was no way I would have started promoting it if not for the WAR!  The rules contained a straightforward list of promotional activities.  I’m proud of the fact that despite joining two weeks late Epil Fail was the WAR’s top promoter.  I tryed everything… except advertising.  I signed up for Project Wonderful but sadly never got any furthur.  That’s something I intend to correct however, I have heard a lot of good things about it.

Things that really worked for me were:

Doing Fanart – FUN!  You get to draw other peoples characters, and show them how much you appreciate them.  They usually link back to your comic and might even reciprocate with some fanart for you.  Most importantly you just made a friend for life!

Signature Banners – This means that every time you post to a forum there’s a link to your comic there.  Loads of people click on it.

Twitter & other Social Networks – Just get out there and meet people – lots of people!  They make it really easy to remind people your comic just updated and tell them any special news.

Many thanks to Frumph & Webcomic Planet for running the WAR!  I know he put a great deal of time into it.
