RevolveR, the web comix anthology of Salgood Sam

Mar 15, 2011

Reviewed by El Santo - the meaning of life, the universe, and everything.

Webcomic overlook is really one of the best review sites for the medium though, so i was pretty happy to see Dream Life is the subject of the 42nd review! As an h2g2 fan this has and extra bit of WIN for me.

Did good, got a 4 out of 5!
To answer one critique/question, "Sometimes, though, his focus on the imagery can be detrimental. I felt key details (like character names) were unnecessarily banished to the margins of the blog post. Shouldn’t this information be incorporated in the comic somehow?" - Yes, it just has not happened yet.
This is a totally fair point. As a web comic with one page a week going up, the pacing is slow enough i felt it was a good idea to add some notes. But the story was plotted for a book, where you would get to later pages where people address each other by name in a natural context as fast as you feel inclined to read the pages. It crossed my mind this could be a problem online, but I didn't want to add cheats to the art itself, hence the notes.

I'd also say it's actually a very story intense comic but the way i'm building it up, and with what has been posted so far, i can totally see how it would seem the story is secondary at this stage. Hopefully El Santo stays tuned long enough to see it come together. Muchas gracias for the attention Señor!

For some great tips on where to find the best comics on the web go check out his site.

Oh, and here's the latest page!
