Print Versus Digital Comic: Arron Borja

Making a comic by hand is very much different from making a comic by using a digital tool. Benefits of creating a comic by hand include not having any limitations with the way that the content is created. For example, with the pen tool in Photoshop, there is more of a restriction as to what I can really do or create. However, if I was to use pen or pencil on paper I have full control of what I am creating. Using digital tools does have it’s benefits as well. For example, I was able to create exact replicas or objects and items in each frame, creating a perfect consistency with the sizes and shapes of the objects. With drawing my comic by hand, each object/item was not perfectly replicated in the frames following. To me, it doesn’t really matter if I read comics on a screen or on a paper, as long as I understand the story and what’s going on. The only thing that would concern me is if the author of the comic purposely did things with the story or the design of the comics so that I would absolutely need to read the comic on paper to receive the full experience of the comic.
