    Western fandom Fanbook / Anthrology? Interest?

    Post by Tehrin on Thu Jun 26, 2014 9:53 am

    So after looking through the PP anthrology, I was thinking it might be fun to make a few comics. But then, I was wondering if making something like this in the western xeno community might be kind of a fun project to undertake.

    There might be some logistics with actually getting it printed as western companies tend to be bigger on copyright, while in Japan doujin is sort of viewed as free advertisement and welcomed. But namco/bandai seemed to be really happy to showcase fanart and fan creations on their official websites back in the day. At any rate, I was considering going through Kablam, but I might email them asking about it and if it would be possible to use them as a printing service. But the nice thing about them is that they deal specifically in comics, can do color (if we decide to go with color) and are pretty low upfront cost.

    I was also thinking about using proceeds (if we go with a printed book that is) to go toward a charity.

    People can submit comics (there would be a template to use), fanart, and fan fiction. I think all content should be made specifically for the book, and a deadline should be set in order to get the material put in it. I think there should also be a theme?

    Does anyone think they might like the participate?

    This appeals to me greatly! I loved being able to submit pieces on the Xenogears 15 Anthology with RinUzuki/Ramsus-kun! The Xeno15 book was never printed, though, but the PDF version is ready to go if someone wanted to print it. Either way, I'd love to submit something as soon as a theme and format are nailed down! (I missed out on the group order of P/P R/R unfortunately. TAT)

    Anyway, HELL YEAH I'M INTERESTED.  I'll see if I can cough up something to submit. ouo

    I would love to do something for it too. It will be hard to find many people who will draw full comic. Xenogears15 project was going to have comics too but it ended with pictures only.
    Anyway if I find time then count me in.

    (I just ordered the P/P one! :D If it doesn't get here before I see you next, Erin, I'd love to see it, tho!!)
    I have no idea what I wanna do for this. XDDD

    (Yay!!! :33  I'll bring it when we come to visit if you hasn't got it by then. :>)
    Haha, yeah, I had an idea last night, but the more I think about it ... I dunno.  I might just draw a draw. :B

    I will probably make a comic or two. It's just getting off my lazy butt and actually doing them. Hahah.

    I was thinking about a theme sort of like "Those we left behind"

    or something kinda along those lines?  I think it would be gut-wrenchingly right in the feels appropriate. Smile
