On today’s podcast, we kick things off with listener feedback from Javier Hernandez, cartoonist and podcaster. Then Shawn Atkins, Dan Greenwald, and Nick Marino get hyper-local with cartoonist and Pittsburghese expert, Virginia Shields.
Virginia’s “Words and Phrases for Getting Arahnd Pittsburgh” (available on Etsy)
We discuss staying active in your local indie comics scene by creating comics that represent your community, participating in local shows and events, and working to generate local success.
While this episode focuses on Pittsburgh, you can apply what we’re taking about to almost any other locale. And if you don’t think you have a local cartoonists scene, you might be surprised what a little bit of digging will reveal — Google your town or nearby cities to find out where comics creators are meeting up and don’t be afraid to get yourself in on the action.
