Hi Femi, Congratulations on completing your short comic. Before you look to publish:
1) Who else has edited your comic? Have a number of people from your target audience give you feedback on both the art and story. And get their opinion on this question: “Is this the sort of comic I would spend thirty minutes on if it was done by a stranger?”
2) Consider the medium and market for your comic: free or for money? Paper or e-book or webcomic? Targeted for general distribution or handed out as a tract? Who is your target audience?
3) How much time and money are you willing to spend to get this in the hands of your target audience?
If you have a good response on the above three points and Holy Spirit approval, then consider that there is no publisher that wants to handle a comic done by an unknown artist. 2017 Summary of the American Mange Market, by Thought Co. https://www.thoughtco.com/american-manga-economy-broken-2282852 explains this better than I could.
Read this article and give me your feedback.
I was wanting to give a space for other artists to weigh in on the issue of online publishing. Ok, do you have a sampler strip or page (JPEG format) that you can post on the CCAS gallery? Post it as a photo on your site.
No need to ask for a pardon, we're all learners here.
To upload your JPEGs, go to the very bottom of the main page and select the button "Add Photos." This will open a window that will ask you to browse your computer to find and select the JPEG to upload, then press the button "Add Photos."
Once your JPEG is uploaded, it should appear both on the main page and in your gallery on your page; although sometimes this can take a while. You can comment on your picture to explain any details that you want the viewers to know.
I look forward to seeing your work.
Alright. I have posted it. How would you see it?
For me, posting on social media helps generate public interest. It creates a waiting audience should you officially publish. It worked really well for MegaTokyo and Lackadaisy Cats. I like to share story snippets, character bios, comic strips, shirt stories, scripts, etc. I'm just working on copyrighting my work before I re-post. Just so I'm protected.
