As CMS developers, we’re deep into the technical aspects of publishing webcomics. Many of our artist friends are too — some more reluctantly than others. Frankly, most would rather draw comics than hack code. And we can’t blame them. So we wrote a book aimed at webcomic artists.
At a glance, we wrote and illustrated:
Different kinds of tags and how to use them
The relationship between HTML and CSS
Fundamentals of theming the Grawlix CMS with show() and PHP snippets
Best-practice techniques for clean, easy-to-edit code
Elements vs. tags vs. attributes
Techniques to prevent trouble down the road
The vital sections of a HTML document
The fundamentals of web page layout
- Common CSS selectors and properties
Our 54-page illustrated guide to coding webcomics covers more than mere tags. It’s about understanding the ins and outs of HTML & CSS; the principles and best-practices; how to prevent tangled tags.
It also comes with quizzes to test your understanding along the way, and each chapter builds upon the last.
Who’s it for
While we wrote the book with complete n00bs in mind, we soon found that experts learned a thing or two as well. We also wrote it for webcomic artists — but the material has its roots in presentations Ben’s been giving since the early 2000s.
We recommend it for anyone who looks at Grawlix CMS themes and asks, “what can I edit without breaking something?”
