Dialogue Free Comics Day

Share |

Noel Curry, creator of the webcomic DJ Bogtrotter, has decided, more or less on a whim, to proclaim May 14th as "Dialogue Free Comics Day". Not only do I love the audacity of creating new, online holidays, I applaud the idea of makers of webcomics the world over challenging themselves to explore the narrative potential of images. Curry will be collecting all participating comics on this blog, so make sure to visit on May 14th to satisfy all your wordless reading appetites.

P.S. I hereby declare July 11th (my birthday) to be International Drink Grain Alcohols and Shoot Roman Candles at Each Other Day. Celebrate!


Optipess, a webcomic signed on to participate in Dialogue Free Comics Day, often features wordless narratives, tagged as "pantomime".


You can also find plenty of wordless gems at Space Avalanche. Hee hee, Riker.
