These are really useful characters. What is the copyright status on using them in a new work?

These are great - any chance that you could incorporate more of the characters?

I contacted Scott McCloud and Google, never heard back. It's my understanding this falls under fair use. I grabbed all the workable characters. Others had too many other artifacts over them to make it worthwhile editing them for this stencil.

No women represented at all here. The misogyny in the design world is disturbing.

WTF? Is this a muslim site? If not, then why are women all hidden away? I don't know about you, but most of my "stories" involve my half of the population. The saddest part is thatthe person posting apparently didn't even notice the omission.

Thanks Radiorental for this stencil. @LaurenD, why don't create verison 2 of this stencil, would be helpful.

girls are funny and complain too much. It's pretty childish to be so offended by a thumbnail on a random internet blog. they honestly think the author made a conscious decision to disclude females from this work. Hey ladies?! He also left out asians, spaniards, black people, toddlers...oh, and my Mom. That SOB! He's such a bigot!

First thought when I found this "wow, that's sure a lot of bros and no women"
Read the comments.
Oh yeah, clearly not the first one to notice this.

Just an FYI to everyone complaining about the lack of women. This is not deliberate. I lifted all workable characters from the original google comic. By workable I mean more than just a couple of instances of of a character.

There is one woman in the original comic, while there are 4 instances they're pretty much two poses. I originally felt this would be of limited use in a storyboard. Please direct your flame at Scot Mcloud.

That all said, just so we're all happy I'm going to do a v2 with more characters.

Glad that you are working on a v2 ... any idea when we can all enjoy it?
