Anonymous asked: what's the best way to get into the comics industry?

kierongillen:

Take a piece of paper, fold it up, draw a comic on it and sell it to someone.

I’m not being nearly as facetious as you may suspect. Comics’ democratic nature is one of its bigger pluses.

This is always my answer to this question. “Make one. There. You’re in comics. Now make the next one.”

notfadeaway asked: I'm working on a script for a comic I'm creating. My cast is primarily female and I'm worried I have too many women. When you're writing CM (since your cast is largely female) do you ever think, "there should be a guy in here somewhere?" And if so, what do you do? I'm really comfortable writing women, and I love my characters... I see no need for anymore men in the story at this time, but I'm afraid it won't appeal to a large enough audience. 3 prominent women to 1 supporting male? Too much?

>too many women

I’m sorry, I don’t know what those words mean in that order. 

>do you ever think, “there should be a guy in here somewhere?”

No.

STOP IT. 

You’re trying to sell a thing you haven’t even written yet.  Write the story you would write if you were just going to put it in a drawer.  

Write the story you want to read. 

Went to the Atlanta Pen Show and picked up some cheap pens and a parallel pen. I need to learn more so I know better what to look for next time.
