40 Comics With Absurd Situations And Unexpected Endings By This Artist

On Bored Panda, various authors with various types of content are frequently featured, so comics are a common sight. Some webcomics have been around for a while, but new ones with fresh ideas are constantly appearing. This series of “Colmscomics” is exactly that – a breath of fresh air. The comics’ creator prefers to keep his humour dark at times, and the cartoons frequently include unexpected twists at the end.

In his Instagram account, the artist writes, “I’m just a dude with a pen, a dream, and a very questionable sense of humour.”

“Colmscomics” has about 7,000 Instagram followers and is rapidly growing, which is a testament to how funny and clever their comics are!

Because art, in any form, takes a long time to practise as well as to produce, we asked the artist how long it takes him to complete his comics.

“From beginning to end, one of my comics takes about 6 hours. I usually spend a lot of time on the drawing because that’s where I try to put my ideas down on paper (or screen). After that, it’s only a matter of finishing the line work and adding colour. When I’m attempting something new for the first time or trying to get the lighting just right, the colouring can take a long time.I attempt to strike a balance between selling a compelling situation while also not overworking myself, and I frequently fail at both haha.”

We wanted to ask Colm about his comics ideas because being a cartoonist is difficult; one can quickly experience a lack of inspiration, exhaustion, and other issues.

“Comedy has always been a source of joy for me. I enjoy watching comedies on TV and reading comedies in comic books and books. Along the way, you pick up on the small structures that make jokes and the nuances that make a situation amusing. When comedy is such a big part of your life, you can’t help but look at everything for something funny to laugh at.I’ll make jokes in the middle of the day or sit down with the intention of making something amusing and simply let my mind wander. When I’m in a bad mood, I’ll change gears and read or watch something funny to help me get back into the right frame of mind.”

Because, as previously stated, creative activity can lead to burnout, we wanted to know how the artist dealt with this as well.

“In a nutshell, yes. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes Your creativity isn’t like a light switch that you can turn on and off whenever you want, contrary to popular belief. Your creative or hilarious ideas may come to a halt if you’re tired or anxious. It’s also discouraging when you put a lot of time and effort into a comic and get little in return. However, all you have to do in those situations is wash your hands of the previous task and move on to the next.

We also wanted to know what the general public thought of the comic artist’s work.

“When I show someone a comic I’ve made or am working on, they frequently laugh or compliment me on it. I’m not sure if that’s genuine or just politeness, and I’d prefer not to know. On the other hand, on the internet, you get a far more honest response. I get a lot of positive feedback from people who either laugh or tell me how much they enjoy my work. Some people will not get the joke and will chastise you for wasting their time, suggesting that you take a long walk off a short pier instead, but hey, that’s the internet for you!”
