So, Terez got me into Polandball. It's a great webcomic collection in a certain style with certain recurring themes. The Reddit for it has a whole lot of rules for creating comics (some of them don't make a whole lot of sense, and the mods are a bit fascist). But there are a few I like a lot, and I thought I'd share them here. I posted one in another thread, but was (quite rightly) told that the context was not appropriate, and removed it.

I also have a few ideas for some of my own. And on that note, the first draft of my first Polandball comic:

The resolution's not great, but I think it's still readable. If not, I'll clarify.

Not bad, but yeah, the resolution for the words needs to be improved a bit. Had to zoom in to make it out.

Rule #1: Americans and other English-speaking countries have good English. You are making Murica sound like Best Korea.

No, and I know that rule. America's English is fine except for his last line, and that was intentional. It's his Freedom Tourettes. In any case, I've seen English speaking countries make the occasional lapse.

As for California, the states don't always have perfect English, and California has millions of people whose primary language is Mandarin, Cantonese, and the big one: Spanish.

ETA: You can't tell at this resolution, but America's last line is slightly smaller.

I can't draw, and I don't know how to make a comic with multiple panels in a single image.

I like the rules, partly because of how they came about. Also, helps keep the genre idiosyncratic and familiar.
