r/Vertical is a subreddit dedicated to the posting of vertical comics.

Welcome to /r/vertical

A vertical comic is comprised of a series of images taken from a scene that tells a story using captions/reaction-shots and contains a punchline.

Rules

  • Only post vertical comics. No memes, adviceanimals or image macros stacked on each other.
  • Your vertical comic must use the correct format.
  • If you are unsure if a vertical contains the correct format message a mod.
  • Tag all NSFW content.
  • Criticism is accepted, however, blatant attacks on other users are not. This also applies to trolling.
  • Report any inappropriate content or submissions that break the rules and/or message the mods.

Any breach of the rules will result in a warning, with further breaches resulting in a ban. Complete disregard for the sub, its users and the mods will result in an instant ban.

Making Vertical Comics

  • They should be displayed vertically, contain continuity and be several frames in length.
  • The frames of vertical comics should be taken from scenes in movies/programs, videos or events.
  • Each frame should be captioned. NEW with the exception of the final frame which is a silent reaction frame. No silent frame necessary anymore.
  • In other cases, alternate set-ups can be used such as having more than one silent frame and/or positioning them differently, or having no silent frame at all (so long as there is a punchline).
  • The most important aspect of vertical comics is re-usability. Vertical comic templates should allow the use of more than just one joke, however, the odd variation is accepted.
  • Do not quote scenes word for word.
  • Read this post to familiarize yourself with what a good vertical looks like and see here for a full description of vertical comics.
  • See here for details on where to host your verticals.
