Took me 2 years, but here’s the most comprehensive History of Webcomics ever made.
Thank you to everyone who helped out with this. If you want a link to any particular website featured in this video, please ask! This is just a reference guide, after all. I do hope I managed to set the record straight for some common historical misconceptions, and that I introduced you all to the vastness of the webcomic world.
I’m sure there are plenty of topics I haven’t covered yet, and every five-second portion of this history could be an hour-long video in its own right. I could talk about ANSI art for hours :p
Comment about what I missed, what you want to hear more about, and tell me what you think!
In this video, I’ve attempted to give a complete overview of all the developments within the medium of webcomics. To do this, I’ve been looking at the chronology of webcomic theory, technological changes, births of genres, and major gatherings. What results is a ridiculously incomplete picture of the medium at large, with an odd emphasis of experimental works that just happen to do something first. Not covered in this video are the thousands of fantasy and sci-fi adventures that were the bread-and-butter of webcomic readers for decades. Not covered are the thousands of gag-a-days the internet has been chuckling at since 1993. Not mentioned are Jeph Jacques, Gisele Lagace, David Willis, and Dan Shive, writing the same stories for 20 years without being affected by a changing environment at all, other than writing more queer-positive stories as time goes on. I didn’t bring up any of the millions of webcomics made available on deviantArt or Smackjeeves (rip) or Comicfury. I couldn’t find a good rationale to bring up the individual webcomics I know from countries like Czechia, Poland, Egypt, and Lebanon. In fact, I hadn’t brought up the African continent at all until this point! There’s just so much….
