4. Comic Book Marketing by the How to Make Webcomics Guys
You know their names. You probably know where to find them too. Let me help out the newbies. Brad Guigar, Dave Kellet, Scott Kurtz, Kris Straub. Even though the title is Webcomics. There is so much marketing packed into this book, I couldn’t help but include them. There is some Real World Comic Book Marketing Tips in the Book. I’d stick with the book. Not too much marketing advice from what I can see on their blogs.

Feel like you’re the next big comic book marketing guru? We’ll see, drop me a line and we’ll talk.
So, why didn’t I make the list? I mean this is my blog, I should on here somewhere right?
Well, I won’t be a leader until I make it on somebody else’s blog. You are not a leader until you help people. Otherwise, you are just a loner. Plus, I don’t think people will be as receptive to your comic book as you would like them to be. There is too much bad stigmatism with that terminology as I point out here.
To make the most of your marketing effort, I think we need to REBRAND THE COMIC INDUSTRY and it starts by changing our name, our attitude, and our look. Why do you think DC is doing it? It’s time.
