The podcast by indie comics creators for indie comics creators slide on its thinking cap and gets to work!
First up, Shawn and Nick were invited to hang out at Phantom of Attic Comics (Oakland) for Free Comic Book Day 2011, and they share about their awesome experience.
Then the guys briefly talk about the recently completed Time Log webcomic ACT II. They agree — it’s better in one chunk as opposed to reading it week-to-week.
That thought spins off into a discussion about rethinking webcomics — how they’re released, how they’re promoted, and how they’re collected.
Is the traditional system flawed? Why are graphic novel collections a better idea for indie creators than single issues? How could releasing webcomics as chapters improve the reading experience?
And what are some good ways to sell webcomics as a physical product? Nick likes the digital comic card, and Shawn likes CD collections.
