Show notes for issue 32 of +The Full Bleed
are now available. This week's business issue goes between the panels to discuss why indie creators should focus on just one platform when distributing a comics project. Here's why:
* Keeping a schedule and publishing in one place allows fans who like your work to recommend to their friends where and when to find you, because they know new stuff will be there.
* Also, you need a track record. Ryan Browne turned God Hates Astronauts into a semi-regular webcomic in 2010. Image Comics picked it up in print last year. Katie Cook has been writing and drawing her adorable webcomic, Gronk: A Monster's Story, since April of 2010. Five years later, she has a print deal with Action Lab. Doing the hard work of building audience first -- in one place, and one place only -- CAN pay off.
* Predictability also forces you to be professional. And that's what you want to be, right? A comics industry professional?
