Resources, swag, and other fun stuff
Webcomics have gone from niche specialties to mainstream reading. Show the world your love for visual online stories and jokes with this t-shirt featuring everyone’s favorite purple bat.
We’re thrilled to announce a new theme: Asterisk, an “instructional” theme with four tones — two practical and two informative — to help you learn to make great webcomic sites. It’s loaded with inline notes to tell you what’s going on, why we set it up that way, and how it works.
Learn to Code
We’ve heard it many times: “Help! I can’t code!” Yes you can. You just need a place to start — and our first e-book is written for you.
This PDF will guide you through the basics of HTML/CSS and customizing your webcomic site with the Grawlix CMS. You’ll learn about:
- Tags: Different kinds, how they work, and how to use them
- Classes: The tight relationship between HTML and CSS
- Themes: Fundamentals of theming the Grawlix CMS, especially the Stick Figure 1.1 theme
- Advice: Best-practice techniques for writing clean, easy-to-edit code based on our years of writing the stuff
You’ll also get quizzes to test your know-how along the way. This is a great resource for comic artists looking to publish their stories and dailies on the web.
