There’s a lot to know about the process of making and selling comic books, and there’s no straight line from A to B. There are few standard practices, no hard and fast rules, and no formula.
That said, there’s a lot of value in learning tried-and-true techniques, and in studying what others have done, so that you don’t make the same mistakes they made.
Make comics your career
It’s our goal to provide information and insights that will help you move forward, wherever you are now.
- Techniques that will help you publish a quality comic book or graphic novel and get it in front of readers, so you can finally make comics for a living.
- A place to find a like-minded community of comic book artists, writers, and publishers; the only other people who can really understand what you’re going through.
- Ideas about how to build a platform where you, the comic maker, are visible. How to make the most of in-person events like comic cons, and how to establish a solid online presence that will keep you in front of fans.
- Help figuring out your strengths and weaknesses, so you can find out where you stand and either learn what you don’t know, or partner with someone with complementary skills.

His Tales of the Incredible Conduit #1 sold 21,000 copies, which is unusually high for an indie comic. The complete story of how he made that happen is one of the items you’ll be able to access inside the free membership area.
