Solving Webcomic Issues We All Face.
This podcast we discuss:
Ken: How do you get ramped back up to doing the workload you previously had on your comic after a hiatus? Part of me doesn’t want to go back to that schedule/lifestyle…
Dawn: After ditching the syndication route, I have seemingly been brainwashed against submitting my comic to anyone, anywhere. When someone initially suggested submitting Z&F to a comic publisher who has kid-friendly material, I scoffed at the idea. But after thinking about it, maybe it would be better financially for me, as well as broader exposure. What are your thoughts on this, if the contract is legit (ie: doesn’t claim ownership over my work, for instance)
Antoine: We did discuss in past podcasts about releasing a Chapter, then take a break while making the next one. Would a “Summary Strip” be a good thing to do before starting a new chapter? If yes, should we keep it in the arcives once the new chapter as started?
Byron: How should I handle the “Old 1977” gang comics vs. the “Young 1977” gang comics? I think bouncing back and forth from Old Bud to Young Bud will confuse people. We talked once before about my having a second URL, 1977 Again. Would posting the Old Gang comics there and the Young Gang at the original URL be okay or not?
Reader Issue: Charles Dowd of http://lilithdark.com/ – Here’s a question(s)- As an all-ages comic creator, how do you manage advertisers on your sites that constantly post inappropriate material, ie furry pron ads, gore, extreme sex or murder? Do you hand approve every ad? What about the services like PW or Scibbol? What is the responsibility of the creator/website owner?
