Comments on: Sequential Underground #36 - Acting Locally http://www.audioshocker.com/2012/02/22/sequential-underground-36-acting-locally Uncensored pop culture criticism and comics creation conversation. Thu, 17 Apr 2014 23:05:54 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.1.10 By: nick marino http://www.audioshocker.com/2012/02/22/sequential-underground-36-acting-locally#comment-36770 Mon, 27 Feb 2012 20:34:22 +0000 http://www.audioshocker.com/?p=9169#comment-36770 @Brian: Lots of really interesting points and a good extension of this discussion. Sometimes, I do find that I have no common ground with other comics people I meet... at least a few people at every show I exhibit at. When I'm striking up conversations from my side of the table, I normally say, "What kind of stories do you like? Sci-fi? Action? Comedy? Drama? Horror?" Most of the time, people name off titles instead of replying with a genre, and I tend to know most of the stuff they're talking about. And then I try to sell them my books :) But I rarely have that conversation with other creators... most of the time, we end up discussing other creators or industry issues instead of just recommend stories to each other.

If you haven't read a superhero comic in ten years, you don't have the right to make fun of someone who loves Green Lantern. Some people hate funny comics, some people hate sad comics, some people hate action comics, & it's a good idea to have one or two things you can talk to people about regardless of their favorite genre (& yours) as something you legitimately like. I'll talk to any fan of super heroes about the first Human Torch stories for hours (because it is awesome) & I'll talk to sad story people about Will Eisner (who is surprisingly little read) & manga people about my love & frustration for that genre (I miss the 1980s when mangas read left to right & everyone was left handed in the drawings (which I never noticed until somebody told me a few years ago)). People who like funny jokes & are routinely swearing in conversation, I point them to Super Haters.....

I also personally try to always offer to help someone (be it offering to split shipping costs when sending out some books for promo or doing a proofread before a print run) & plant a seed for a possible collaboration in the future.

Also, if you don't have anything to say positive - just start talking about what kind of pens they like.
