Hi my name is: Dave - Issue #2 by @cobmaximus

Hey hey hey! Sorry for the delay, but this comic takes me a lot of time to make... I thought I 'd be able to make once a week but this one took two weeks to make, I hope everyone enjoys it.

Let's get to know a little more about Mr. Stache

And this is how Mr. Stache's super power is revealed: Super Strength and a shape shifting Mustache called Wonder Stache.

Initially I had plan a two parter comic just in time for Halloween... but realistically I just can't draaw that fast haha. Earlier I said I wanted the comic to be released every week, but after reflecting on what projects I'm working on at the moment, I decided that the webcomic is too much of a burden and won't allow me to have free time for the other projects I'm working on. I don't want to stop doing the webcomic either... What I will do is just try to continue making this comic but without a pressure on schedule, just kinda whenever I have the time to work on quick stories about Dave.

Please let me know what you think of it, what do you like and don't you like about the comic. Do I need to add more background? maybe too much shadows or they're not applied properly... you're the critics now :P let's hear how I can improve the comic.... and do please resteem this comic :D! that will help a lot to get even more visibility

Remember, I'm running a Discord server with @jonathan-greer, in case you want to join and we can talk about webcomics and even collaborate to make ones.

If you also like to make webcomics or comic strips, you can use the tag #steemit-webcomics and help support the community by upvoting and resteeming.

Until next time!


So glad that his super power was revealed! Wonder Stache!! This is the most creative superpower that I have ever heard of! I wonder how he will use it in next chapters :D

I like the joke in your comic and also the illustration. It is kind of plain but it makes it cool. There are not that many comics that are kind of 'clean'. This is what I like about yours. The joke for me is more important in this genre. And this is what you're doing very well.

I understand your time pressure and I'm sure everyone does. We all have so many things to do and it's so nice of you that you will continue with the comic even though you're so busy :)

I'm sure that the next one will make me laugh again :D Thank you for sharing!

Wow thanks for all the kind words @delishtreats. So far there aren't many jokes since it's a lot of character introduction, but yeah hopefully the next comics will be a little more fun and simpler.
I just wish I had more free time to work on all this side projects I have haha

Well, unfortunately we only have 2 hands and have to prioritize :) You don't have to do this comic too often so that we treasure it and it feels like a treat when you post the next pages ;)

yeah :) unfortunatelly I still have to pick up my sleeves and draw more!! haha. I'll try to have some drawings in the near future

That tag really changes everything! Do you know were can I get one?

That's a cool power! I wonder if he has a weakness?

haha it's a special tag that's not easy to get xD

hmmm that's a good question.... what could his weakness be???? shaving? xD

Hahaha or afraid of a shaver.

Haha or scissors

hahahahah i love that his moustache can transform and is actually a sidekick XD that's so great ! <3

hahaha yeah it's the best partner in the world, pluse makes him more atractive haha

Hi cobmaximus,

Awesome!!! Thanks a lot for the support provided Curie!

Hehehe it's pretty funny, and a great way to reveal the stache powahh! The comic panels are all nicely drawn and coloured.
I think the setup is fine as it is, don't really need to over exert yourself in background since it's a funny comic. I would focus on the joke and the script rather than art, like what you are doing here, but that's just my recommendation :).              
Congratulations for your curie vote :D.

That's a great advice! Yeah I've been focusing a little more on coloriy and backgrounds just to push myself a little more, but it also affects the time I end up spending to finish a comic. I'll have to find a balance on this, maybe do simpler comics but release arts with more detail on other posts

Thanks for all the kind words @scrawly

Oh yeah!

Cool, cool, cool!
Fantastic comic art Maximus!
Is Maximus your name? lol just guessing!

Anyways, you're very creative and have full of imaginations.
You made that for 2 weeks so its very worth it!
Congratulations and the @curie upvote as well!

Thanks a lot @ronel :). Haha no, my name is not Maximus, but you can call me Cob if you want.

Yeah this comics take a lot of time, I should see how it can make faster comics

Cool Cob!

You're fast and a fast learner as well.
Keep it up boy!
You're still very young right?
You're still a kid? Oh my gosh!
Kids not allowed here I guess lol

lol no I'm no kid xD hahaha I just look young :P

Where did Mr. Stache came from? I was sure that Dave was just there where did he go? he missed Mr. Stache. This is really great @cobmaximus, its looking like the webtoons I read. Nice nice man :D I love the way the story is going. Can't wait for the next issue.

aww thanks @looserwin :) still requires a lot of improvement but it's something :)

Yes!!! I had a friend who had this very iconic mustache. He made stickers of it and stuck them everywhere he went. It became his logo almost. It was hilarious. This reminds me of him SO much.

I think it's hilarious that he moves into the telephone booth to get into his super hero outfit but all that ends up being is him removing the name tag LOL but I do have one question, what is that white bubble with the "x" mark next to his mustache in the fifth image?

What better super power could he have? I think we all would like a mustache with as much power as his. I like that it comes to life after the initial fight. Like that's the backup plan if his muscles and brawn don't save him.

I'd love to see a scene in the future where he's fighting with his hands but the mustache is also fighting. So they're both throwing punches. Maybe to some kung fu guy or multiple enemies. I think that would be pretty funny.

I don't have any real critique or ways I think you could improve it. I think it's quite nice as it is. How long did it take you? And are you doing it all by hand or are you using software?

Thanks for sharing!

Ok let's go point by point :)

Haha oh your friend must be a really cool dude! I've always wanted to have a cool mustache like that, or a cool beard, but my facial hair is patchy and I can't get.

Oh no, that's just his mout haha, he's just smiling.

Haha yeah I can start picturing something like that, I'll have to write something down for that

And all is done digitally, I use Krista to make my comics. This comic Toole me about two weeks, mainly because I'm not a pro and also because I can just do this on my free time

I'll have to check Krista out. I've always wanted to do animations or drawings but always wondered how you do it digitally. I recently had an app called SketchBook recommended to me. I haven't had a chance to mess around with it (I too have been quite busy) but would love to see if there's anything I can create with it. Going to add Krista to my list!

Ok, gotcha on the smile. That's my only note or improvement I'd suggest. It's just one opinion though so maybe I'm just not used to the way comics are drawn in that way. I think I was confused because the mustache is still over his chin but he's got his mouth perked up to the side. Took me a second to look at it again and see what you were doing there. Again, could be all me and the way I was looking at it.

Well thanks for taking the time to respond to my comment and I wish you lots of luck with it. Keep doing it no matter what and I don't see any reason why you couldn't be professional one day. Cheers!

Oh yeah sketchbook is superb for drawings, but I think I'll struggle a little to make a full comic out of it just because how you manage the layers. In this matter, Krita is better, or well any other software like it. Try it out though to see how you like it :)

Will do! And thanks for the recommendation. I'm gonna give it and others a go to see what I like best. I'm sure Google will be a good companion in helping me figure out how to use it 😂 Cheers!

Although I do not use the English language, I enjoyed seeing the images you created for the comic. I could understand through the illustrations the plot of the cartoon and I liked it. Sure you took two weeks to publish it because it is not easy to make so many images hahaha.

gracias :) si creo q a pesar de que el texto este en ingles, las imagenes hablan bastante y se logra entender bien lo que pasa :)

Thank you for sharing this comic and it was nice to have a backstage pick, like the way you explained the story of origin of Mr. Stache. That is really funny the transformation of Dave to Mr. Stache. It is funny, good made characters and there is a little story in it. I believe it would be interesting to have a continuation of the story.

and there's still more to come :D

thanks for visiting and enjoying the comic

hahaha howdy there cobmaximus! this was hilarious, I was laughing as soon as it started. Stache is such a great character and Wonder Stache is pure genius! I loved it, I think it was perfect the way you did it, not too busy, it's simplicity is what made it even more funny to me. lol. I'm still laughing... how long before the next Stache episode is out?

hahaha oh yeah! that's what this comic is all about :D getting laughs out of people :).

Hmmm not sure, I'll be on vacations for a week and then I'll have to draw some after that. Let's say I'll try to have something for the next couple of weeks :)

howdy again cobmaximus! well whenever you make it back it will be fun I'm sure, keep up the good work!

Hah reading that part about time, it seems you're juggling more than it's possible. Exactly like me haha :D It's crazy that our brains are just constantly hungry for executing more ideas and we're almost slaves of them haha :D

Comic was pretty funny :) Not really my thing but I enjoyed it :D

Oh I get you, it's just that trying to do the things we love is difficult to then struggle with real life xD but we gotta try to make the most out of it
