Webcomic Workshop Podcast #52

Solving Webcomic Issues We All Face.

This podcast we discuss:

Dawn – Many have said smaller volumes is the way to go to market towards kids.  Should I break my 200-comic volumes down into 2 100-comic books?  The pricing evens out in the end, so all it means is I come out with books more often. Smart move, or waste of time?

Drezz – Establishing yourself as a commission-based artist at a con – better to brand yourself as more of a versatile artist than one specific type/style of artist.

Robin – Libraries:  How do you get in them?  How should they be approached?  What makes them more likely to put your book on the shelves?

Chris – Do you ever have the worry about revealing too much of yourself and possibly offending readers who may not agree with you or your point of view?

  1. Interesting pod cast. Especially the part about being a commission-based artist at cons. I’m struggling with doing commissions of other people’s properties versus pushing only my own properties. During New York Comic Con I did well with commissions of other people’s properties and only an eighth of the money I made was for work related to my own properties. So one would think that I should keep operating in this manner because I’m making some money, but I also wonder if by doing this I’m taking my eye off the grand prize which is to be successful with my own work. I mean isn’t that the end goal we’re all trying to reach? I would love to be like Bill Watterson in that if he were to do a convention, no one even think about asking him to do a sketch of Superman or the Venture Bros. I think about just filling my table with my own product and pushing that for a couple of years even if I have to take a loss on the table expenses. I’m not expecting a solution from you guys. Just relating my thoughts.
