The Sketches: Basics

The Sketches gang limits itself to those characters and creatures from graphic novels and web comics. They include comics such as DC and Marvel works and manga from various Asian countries. They are the only group to associate with non-print material. They have strong ties to the world of web comics, and they associate with animated videos. Any connections with audio books or especially videos is generally frowned upon by the other gangs, which only makes the Sketches that much more outcast. Their closest allies are the Fantoms and Profs.


The Gang

Creatures: a sub-group formed by the non-human characters from all the comic groups. Members include aliens, were-creatures, demons, angels, and more. This excludes powered humans, who are sometimes welcomed in the Supers.

Easterlies: a sub-group for comics of Eastern origin.

Supers: a sub-group comprised of the superheroes and villains from such comics as Superman, The Green Lantern, and others. Sometimes they include powered humans from other works.

Webs: a sub-group for web comics.

Westerlies: a sub-group for comics of Western origin.


Internal Relations

As with any group, there can be internal tensions.
    The Supers can look down on the others (mostly the Webs) as not "true" comic book characters.
    The Creatures are sometimes looked down on as inferior, though they are also feared for their powerful and eclectic members. They are beloved when altercations with other gangs arise.
    The Westerlies and Easterlies are often in conflict over plot points, animation style, and more.
    Sometimes the Webs are viewed as posers, especially by the Supers, who consider themselves the purest and truest of comic book characters. In general, though, the Webs are liked and accepted by everyone.
    The strongest biases are the Supers against the rest (namely the Webs) and the Westerlies versus the Easterlies.
All that said, the Sketches aren't as divided as they seem, and they're pretty inclusive. They're the only animated ones out there, after all.


External Relations

When facing external challenges, the Sketches bind together. It's animation versus text, and they're proud of their heritage. They think it's the best of both worlds and their style is superior to that of plain old books. They realize they're the outsiders, in a sense, which is why they are more welcoming of web comics and, despite their biases within their genre, they are more inclusive than other gangs.

IS2: Locked


General: Unlocked

The Sketches want to become recognized as works of literature. A good few promote the term "graphic novels". They also encourage the recognition of web comics (and, by extension, other web-based works, at least that are good) as legitimate works of literature. Essentially, they seek the acceptance of non-print mediums as legitimate ways to spread/promote/host literature. By extension, they seek the acceptance of film (mainly animated film) as well.


IS1: Locked

Work on general sub-plot to unlock.
