The winner of last episode's Cartoon College DVD giveaway is Brandon Williams, who KO'd the competition with his CCS thesis idea for Dragon Fist, a manga tale full of passion and punching. Thx to everyone who entered the contest!
Our topic for this episode is creating collected editions of your webcomics or self-published single issues. Shawn Atkins and Nick Marino chat about the books they're currently compiling and the difficulties that come with collecting widespread work into a book-length volume.
This is Shawn's cover for the upcoming Gello Apocalypse v1 collection, which will be available for purchase at SPX in September!
Shawn just sent the first collected edition of Gello Apocalypse off to the printer. The book is a culmination of years of hard work, not to mention two years alone spent crafting the collection itself.
Here's a sneak peek at a reformatted and remastered page from the Time Log collection, which Nick will finish during the AudioShocker hiatus.
Nick's been slowly toiling away on a collected edition of Time Log since the end of 2011. To compile it, he has to chop up and color part of the story that was originally published as a black and white comic book. Why? Because the rest of the tale was released as a widescreen webcomic in color.
The guys both agree that it's a pain in the ass creating collected editions, but the final product is worth it.
