Chicago, IL – Ever daydreamed about making your own comic book or manga? Lie awake late at night imagining being comics' next superstar? Ready to stop spending money on comics and start making it? Devil's Due Publishing, Inc. (DDP) proudly presents HOW TO SELF-PUBLISH COMICS…NOT JUST CREATE THEM TRADE PAPERBACK (JUN063058E), for that fan ready and willing to make that first leap toward the big-time!
Akin to a four-part college course, writer and DDP president Josh Blaylock (G.I.JOE, KORE) walks readers through the practical, coordinative side of publishing, where creative talent is cast aside for equally valuable business sense. HOW TO SELF-PUBLISH COMICS TPB relays essential ingredients of building your infrastructure, bringing together a creative team, printing and marketing, and hitting the street…and brings to light the close-kept secrets and insider stories of a comic industry powerhouse.
"After ten years in the industry, I look at so many new faces in comics and see myself at that age and level," said Josh Blaylock, writer. "HOW TO SELF PUBLISH is the sort of road map I know I wish I'd had at the time."
"The material covered is decidedly not the sexy side of creating comics, which is why this issue is such a valuable resource." ~ SilverBulletComicBooks.com
"I was surprised, Josh lays it out there - I've never had anyone explain it to me like this before. The title says it all!" ~ComicGeekGeekSpeak.com
"[HOW TO SELF-PUBLISH COMICS TPB] offers a very solid primer on industry basics, succinct enough to allow quick and easy reference and provides enough info for the serious creator to learn what they still needs to learn." ~ SilverBulletComicBooks.com"Hell, it makes even me reconsider dusting off some stories I threw in the closet. Maybe if I had read this a few years back, I'd be making comics now instead of just reviewing them." ~SequentalTart.comView Cover Here: http://devilsdue.net/promo/SelfPublish/SelfPublish_TPB_cov.jpg
