Making Vertical Comics

I recently started sharing Anubis: Dog of Death on Line Webtoon, an internet comic portal.

We got a lot of praise, but there was one thing they wanted us to change about the comic.

They wanted us to make it vertical.


The idea would be that we could space the comic out by separating and enlarging the individual panels, so that it would fit Webtoon’s scrolling format, and so that people could appreciate the details more.

I asked John if he would be willing to start drawing the pages like that instead of in the traditional print-page format, but he felt that we would lose the dynamic composition we had.

So instead, I decided to make a Webtoons edit of each page John draws, and post both versions to Line Webtoon.

I have also started a seperate comic on Line Webcomic for bonus and behind-the-scenes content for ‘Anubis: Dog of Death’ that we are calling Anubis Doodles.

I have also tried to post these comics to another internet comic portal called Tapas, but have seen much less success there so far.

Anubis Doodles

I am happy to announce this spin-off series to Anubis: Dog of Death!

As opposed to the main comic’s detailed and colorful artwork, Anubis Doodles has a simpler black-and-white chibi style, so that we can release these in-between the main comic’s pages, since Doodles are quicker to draw.

John Barry Ballaran is also the artist for Anubis Doodles, as he is for the main comic.

While ‘Dog of Death’ is like a classic comic book with an ongoing story, Anubis Doodles will be focusing on jokes, like webcomics and newspaper strips.

I’m looking forward to sharing what we have so far!
