Sequential Underground #51 – The Future of Indie Comics

Sequential Underground

We kick things off with 51 Things Dan Greenwald Loves About Creating Comics! Download the full list as a PDF here.

After that, Scott Hedlund talks about his experience at the 2012 Wizard World Ohio Comic Con a.k.a. the show formerly known as Mid-Ohio Con.

Then it’s time for a talk about what we want for the future of indie comics! Dan, Scott, Shawn Atkins, Nick Marino, and Seth Fronzoli share their visions of what the future could hold for indie comics, from better conventions to hungrier fans to more financial opportunity for webcomics.

Finally, don’t miss Nick and the AudioShocker in the Podcast Arena at Booth 3354 on the Show Floor of the 2012 New York Comic Con this weekend!!

    hm… i hear what scott is saying. indy guys are going to have a bit of a hard time at shows like comic con, they are mainstream shows. people who are familiar and follow the big 3 companies go there, and then yah, the rest of pop culture everything. I’m just trying to do small shows from now on unless i get invited as a guest… small shows.
    like college produced, local one day shows, small 2 day shows, indy shows.
    i mean they have cheaper tables, and the crowd responds well, because the environment is more… intimate. I’m lining up a bunch of shows like that right now.
    in those big shows, people just put on blinders unless you are insanely well known.

    hrm…i actually like those retractable vert displays.
    thing is… almost all ways to advertise at a con are homogenized.
    comics is a homogenized industry/art form, especially when it comes to con presentation. when something new comes along and works, tons of other people pick up on it and replicate it.
    any hoo
    it’s about the strength of the individual artists work. even if everyone has those retractable banners and weird table crate displays, it’s all about how it’s decorated that makes the difference, what draws the crowd, and what makes you memorable.
    i use those cardboard trifold things decked out with all my art printed at larger scales. and it seems to work fine for me.
    i dunno… i guess my thing is i generally don’t think about all the people around me when at a show.

    my favorite artists rarely have any flashy display items when i see them at cons. maybe a banner or something, but that’s pretty much it. they do all of their business off the strength of their work. i eagerly await the time when i can say the same thing bout myself!!!
