Mike Perridge’s Thirty Golden Rules

by  in Comic News Comment

Over on his blog, webcomics pundit and digital comics critic, Mike Perridge has posted ‘Thirty Golden Rules‘ for creators considering submitting a series to Zuda Comics. While several of his rules are Zuda-specific, many of them also apply to comic-creating and comic professionalism too.

Here are just a few choice snippets:

6. The Project: Is this the story you always wanted to tell, or the story you always wanted to sell? Make it both if you can.

8. Writers – read your script aloud until you don’t laugh (unless it’s supposed to be funny). Get someone to proof read it for grammar and spelling.

13. If you’ve chosen to tell a familiar story you have to tell it better than anyone else has ever told it before.

27. Be nice to all the friends you made and those that helped out – you might need their help again.

If you are an aspiring comics professional, you owe to yourself to check it out!
