Your Secret Super Power

A workshop that I’ve been doing at Comic Cons this season is called “Make Comics, Not Excuses!” An experiential lesson on motivation. The motivation to get off our duffs and get moving with that comic book or dream project we’ve been procrastinating on. More often than not, when things don’t work out for us or we’re behind on our goals, we blame our circumstance or something or someone else. “I don’t have the time.” “I’m broke.”  or “I can’t find an artist I can count on.” The problem with blame is that it doesn’t give you control. It doesn’t give you power. In fact,…

Finally…Profitability!

Today – April 1st, I finally, FINALLY figured out how to make money at comic cons! Not sure if it will work for everyone! While visiting the DC Offices a few years back, a few of the folks working there said I looked like Jim. So hey… The way I figure it, I just need 2-3 fans to buy the charade in order for me to make table!

The List

I’ve been seeing a lot of posts recently about bad behavior from fans and creators on social media and it’s amazing to me that so many people don’t know about “The List.” Every pro in the comic book industry has a list. One could call it a “secret” list but it really is no secret because everyone worth their grain of salt has one whether it be a mental list or a written one. This list is comprised of people they already know they DO NOT want to work with. The lists grow much faster these days because of social…

The 2018 Creators Horoscope

A great way to ring in the new year 2018 is to check out what the stars have in store for your comic career: Aquarius You pride yourself on your independence, sometimes too much. Often perceived as cold and unemotional, the Aquarian nevertheless is always a fountain of ideas. The problem is ideas without action are like water. Not sure what that means but it sounds really Aquarian. Expect some recognition this year. Hopefully, nothing associated with the words “sexual” or “harassment.”

To Con Or Not To Con?

To con, or not to con? That is the question. Whether ’tis nobler on the ego to suffer the slings and arrows of Marvel and DC fans or take to arms against the price of tables and by opposing them, to lie and sleep in some more; and by sleep to stay-in on a weekend. The heartache, and the thousand unsold books that my spouse is heir to. Tis a comic con devoutly to be publish’d.
