How to (not) Create a Successful Webcomic
My writing partner and I are in the middle of our second graphic novel, Deputy Witch.  As with our first, Vex, we decided to post it online for free instead of seeking traditional publishing.  We figured it would have the potential for a wider audience than if it were a printed book.  Especially a printed book by two unknown guys.  Actually, let me back up.  I did talk to one of my editors at a company that accepts creator-owned material, but I was told "unless your name is Brian Michael Bendis, you don't have a shot."
Since I only meet 1/3 of that requirement, I figured the internet was the way to go.
Vex did fairly well.  We had a decent-sized audience that interacted somewhat regularly.  Deputy Witch started going up before Vex ended, so we were able to benefit from some crossover readership.  So what I learn from Vex?

We've put together a limited edition collection of my GI JOE Art prints. All color and high quality prints. The sets are limited to 100, signed and numbered. They come shipped in an archival photo box. They include a number of the covers I did for my IDW run on GI Joe and other Joe related commissioned or commercial art. Follow this link to see photos of all the prints included in the box set, and to order. 

The set includes 30 full color prints. I sell prints at conventions or through my blog/email at $15 each. With this set you'll get a higher quality print, and for 1/3 of the cost. Or you can think of it as buying 10 prints and getting 20 of them for free!

However you look at it, it's the best deal to get a number of the GI JOE prints I have available

Thanks always for all your support!

So what if you got a few wrinkles, there are worse things to have, like a case of the twenty somethings,
and a room at Mom and Dad's. Have a very Happy Birthday and party all night on your day.
