Listen to Super Haters Destruct-O-Cast #5 right now:
On this week’s Destruct-O-Cast: making a Super Haters comic strip from start to finish. Join Nick Marino as he details his creation process, revealing lots of little Super Haters secrets along the way!
It all starts with the plot, building it up through brainstorming and conversation. Then, after plenty of tweaks, the process moves onto the scripting phase.
Once the initial script is complete, it’s time to put the characters in place. After the panels are composed, they’re copied into another file and lettered.
The time-consuming lettering stage is also an opportunity to rewrite the dialogue and tighten up the jokes. Once that’s finished, the webcomic is exported, uploaded, and posted to the Super Haters blog.
