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!
