I forgot to mention here on Tumblr that last month I was nominated for the 2014 Gene Day Award for Self-Publishing at the annual Joe Shuster Awards.Above are the nominees in this category. Barbaric Sword of Savagery on the top right is mine.Not sure when they announce the winners, and I doubt I’ll be triumphant, but it’s a real honour to have my work recognised by a stranger, and I’m in great company from the Vancouver comics scene (Cloudscape), and one former member of the Vancouver scene (Jordyn Bochon).

One big collection of awesome! Right on Mike!

I came across this video, randomly in a comment thread somewhere.This guy is awesome! I don’t know what water ever did to him or his family, but I had to draw him for the morning warm up. If you aren’t hurting anyone, then love what you love, and don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise.

Sheriff Treville is getting too old for this shit.
And a very unceremonious cease of my unexpected hiatus.  Life stuff, guys.  All good, just very distracting.  Thanks for sticking around!

Regarding single issue sales: they are incredibly important to a lot of Image creators. On Rocket Girl, it’s by far the biggest chunk (of course, we don’t have a tpb yet). And every reader counts. A few thousand copies can make or break a series. If Rocket Girl dips into the 8000s, we’ll start thinking about when to wrap it up. If it stays above 12,000 we can do it forever. At 12,000 copies I can make as much writing Rocket Girl as Hulk; Amy Reeder can make as much penciling/inking/coloring as she would on Batwoman. 8000 vs 12,000 is a significant difference in percentage, but it’s not a huge amount of readers. A lot of Image creators are in the same boat, albeit their individual line might be a bit higher or lower. Certainly collected editions and digital and ancillary media/merchandise contribute as well. But a lot of making creator-owned work is down to financing: and single issues have the biggest impact on cash flow–and the only impact on cash flow for almost a full year when you take into account early production to ‘get ahead’ as well as solicitation. Also: your comment forgets artists, who are forgotten way to much nowadays. A writer can maybe juggle 4 simultaneous projects, but an artist can do just one book at a time. It is much harder for an artist to make the plunge into creator-owned–so consider that when choosing what to support.

Reblogging because the economics of creator-owned comics are of interest to me, and because this is the kind of thing I should probably take into account when it comes to who gets their comic pre-ordered, who gets shelf picked, and who gets trade-waited.
