What if there was a whole franchise of history-themed comic-books titled after all the major countries and empires around the world, throughout history, and they came out in chronological order? And they’re really long-running so that they not only hit all the major points in that place’s history,…
I think it’d make more sense not to be totally in chronological order. Maybe do arcs and sets in that order so that you can get a run of event tieing together.
But restricting it that way sort of causes several problems like when it should end, missing key events that maybe the author didn’t know enough about at the time and it sorta nails down your pacing instead of being able to set it up well.
It’d still be easy to just illustrate the timeline and have a preamble before a new time period to set the scene, especially if it was a digital comic, which I think would make more sense in general.
PS I hate tumblr’s reblog system, it makes it seem less like a comment/response. Bahhhhhh
