Let’s Talk Comic Books!

Happy Friday, y’all!

So, if you have been paying attention, which I know you have, I put out a post this week about my intentions to break into the comic book market. Have a read here- Getting Graphic- My New Adventures In Comic Books

Now, as it has been pointed out to me (and I already knew) I am pretty clueless on how the comic book industry works. I completely own up to that. I have to say that’s a good thing. The less I know about the realities of something the more effort I put into it. I mean, come on, it took me years to get disillusioned with the publishing world! It’ll be just as long before I know enough about comic books to add that to my list of reasons why I huff gasoline.

But, comic book industry aside, I have a little poll I’d love for you to fill out. Two polls actually. Maybe three. OK, it’s three. They are below. The results of these polls will help me understand my fan base a little more when it comes to comic books. Or graphic novels for those of you that must justify your literary enjoyment of painted panels on a page. Alliteration FTW!

So, if you have time, please fill out the polls. Also, if you are so inclined, please leave a comment below. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the merits of me getting into comic book writing and publishing and also any thoughts in general you have on comic books. Whether you are a reader or creator, lover or hater, joker, smoker, or midnight toker, I’d appreciate any feedback you want to give.

Thanks, folks!

Please comment below also! I’d really love to hear your thoughts and feedback on the subject. And if there is a specific work of mine you’d like to see adapted into a comic book then please let me know!

Thanks, y’all! Cheers!

  1. Jake. Unless I have missed it, please, please, please do an epic Dead mech graphic hardbound ultra collector’s edition! That would be sweet. Yes, kill an acre of amazon rain forest for the paper.

  2. I consume about 30 comicbooks a week, but I’ve moved away from dead tree versions to digital as it saves space. Please put any books your publish out in a CBR or CBZ format (or some other standard digital comic format) as well so that I don’t have to get the pages all smeared.

    • Oh, digital will be the first platform things get launched on. Comixology and Amazon now let indie publishers sell comic books. Plus I can easily convert to CBR or CBZ with software I have if I sell directly from my site.

  3. I mostly read the big Marvel and DC books – batman, JLA, , Spider-Man, xmen, avengers, etc. but I will read any comic written by authors I like. Corey Taylor’s (lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour) House of Gold and Bones comic is amazing.

You got two cents? Then put them here! (That means feel free to comment)
