Comics Are Open Source

Last month, I got a chance to interview a bunch of fellow self-publishers for a series of columns I'm calling "COMICS ARE OPEN SOURCE: Self-Publishing 'Secrets' Revealed."

It's a series of six columns; the first is with Layla Lawlor, discussing Print-On-Demand. Subsequent columns will feature Pam Bliss on Minicomics, Charlie "Spike" Trotman on Webcomics, Jim Ottaviani on Direct-to-Graphic Novel, and me on single issues, or lack thereof. The final column will be a roundtable in which all five interviewees will answer the same questions, and hopefully provide a nice wide perspective of answers.

Go! Read! Enjoy! See other people besides me natter on about self-publishing.

I'm still adding stuff to the pages, so please excuse how bare they are at the moment.

Motor City: We'll be there!

Paul had a sudden shift in plans, and so we're actually going to come out for Motor City Con. We will be there Saturday Only. I'll have a few books to sell, but plan on mostly just walking around and handing out freebies.

See you there!

Site overhaul...

I had a little breathing room now that the book's at the printers, so I spent a few hours and gave the site a bit of a facelift. Most of the upgrades were behind-the-scenes, so you probably won't notice them unless you look really closely. I won't bore you with the nerdly details, but I did condense a lot of the character/people pages to make for a more concise list, and I added a snazzy new image interface called Lightbox to make it easier to view the previews. It takes a few seconds to load, but it's a lot nicer than the previous layout, I think.

There're new previews on the index page, the online store has been cleaned up, and most pages have had their content revised and updated as well. If you haven't been through the site for a while, it may be worth another look.

Also, if you're interested, there's now a feed for the Newsblog; you can find the link in the right-hand column, under the Archives.

Enjoy! Oh, and if you see anything funky or broken, do let me know.

The reviews begin...

Johanna Draper Carlson is one of the first! Read her review here. It's so positive, I'm wondering if I should send her a check. YAY!
