Plok comic panel processI saw somebody over in the Facebook webcomics group post a gif of the different stages of the process of making a comic panel, and I was so impressed I thought I'd do the same with a panel of the Plok comic. I still do the very early stages on paper, st...

Blog posted by Ste Pickford on Tue, 20 Oct 2015

Grandpappy's LairYesterday's Plok comic strip contained a secret 'easter egg', a close up map of Grandpappy's Lair matching the one that Xöb finds hanging in a frame on the wall. You have to click on the comic strip itself to see the giant image, but I suspect most of yo...
