First of all, I'd like to welcome everyone to my webcomic "No Title Required" and thank you for visiting it :)

I have been a big fan of "Bob and George" and "8-bit Theater" in my youth, and I have made a lot of sprite comic at the time by using or recoloring some Megaman characters. I tried to publish some online, but webhosting was complicated and I didn't know anything about HTML code. Moreover, since I was young, I didn't put too much serious thought into it. It was more of a pastime, like scribbling in a notebook would be, than a serious hobby invested with time and passion.

Last year on Facebook, my friends and I started a secret group in which we sent each other some memes and rage comics. I made a sprite comic and doing so, the idea came back to me: "This is fun, maybe I should try to publish a sprite comic again."

After that, I sat down and asked myself: "what kind of comic do I want to do?" Of course, it was a sprite comic that I had in mind, but I didn't know what I wanted it to be.
Should I do a recoloration of existing characters or go straight with premade models?
Which background would be better for my story: Megaman or Mario?
What is my setting? Fantasy? Real life? Sci-fi?

After asking myself all of these questions, I realized that I was limiting myself. I wanted to be original with my sprite comic, do something that was not overused in all the webcomics during the Bob and George era. So I decided to create everything by myself: Characters, backgrounds, effects, etc. And I didn't want to create a story inside an already-made universe like Megaman, but rather create a universe itself.

After a couple of months of sketching, writing and reflecting, I finally got a straight idea of what I wanted. I made the models and put them together to create the first part of my webcomic.

So this is something old, because we have a Bob and George inspired webcomic with sprites; and this is something new, with original models and a new story.

Of course, all my models are inspired by Megaman 7 because it was easier to work with :)

So here's my first stripe! I'll post a new one every Monday, Wednesday and Friday weekly.

Thank you and enjoy
