In the February Nick Mag (our special all pranks and cutouts issue) we had some of our regular cartoonists put on their thinking caps to make Mobius comic strips!
Within the magazine there are 5 Mobius strips by Graham Annable, Mark Martin, James Kochalka, Jef Czekaj, and Sam Henderson!
Here are three online samples...
Grampa & Julie by Jef Czekaj
Teeny Weeny by Mark Martin
Lawnmower by Graham Annable
Of course when you cut them out of the magazine and actually loop them they are even more fun!
Speaking of fun...How about a Mobius Meme?
If anyone is inspired to create their OWN mobius strips, please post a link to them in this thread!
We'd love to see them!
How cool! I've never heard of this in comics before, but it's very reminiscent of how hook-up pans for animation work. (Like in the Flintstones when they run the length of the house, but the background repeats.)
This is indescribably cool.
Now, if only we could get Moebius to do a Mobius Comic Strip about Morbius The Living Vampire...
We actually threw around the idea of trying to get Moebius to do one!
But we didn't think of the Living Vampire!
When I was commissioning these comics, I decided I would try one (just in case, you know, I found out it was impossible) and my first (failed) attempt starred Morbius. He's a living vampire, you know.
This is just too freakin' cool and innovative to be real. I must be dreaming. I'll check back again when I'm awake to find out what utterly normal thing you're actually doing.
I can almost feel those darn stick daemons tapping on the edge of my brain to do one. I'll see what happens...
Aaaahh! COMICS OF THE DEVIL! THEY'RE MADE TO MELT MY BRAINSSSS!
I love Graham's work.
I did one.
It's on my webcomics nation page/account/thingy.
