Okay, in November I am attending a large con in the UK, and I have an entire table to myself. It's a big table, I'm a little person. I am going to dedicate a portion of that table to pimping your comic. For free.
Postcards, bookmarks, paper goods. In little stands and displays, with a sign saying "Take one!" and a snappily dressed goth girl pointing them out.
I will also include a leaflet (with the name and url of every site) with everything I sell.
Interested? Here's the deal. You need to tick a these boxes.
You must run a family friendly comic and website.
If not, I will plaster a big bold advisory label over anything I produce for you. If you're happy with that, then that's okay.
If you feel it compromises your artistic sensibilities, there's not much I can do for you.
You must provide me with the full colour image and
description to promote you.
I will create the physical materials. I'll give details lower down.
You must have a minimum
archive of 30 comics.
This is negotiable, if you are heading towards that number and will have reached it by November, or your comic is spectacular, I will seriously consider it. Why 30? To prove that you will actually exist by the time I reach the con, and will continue updating.
You must have your own domain, and your site must be of reasonable quality.
Negotiable (domain). Whilst I would prefer not to be promoting drunkduck.com/ninja_thrashing_monkeys54785 type sites, I'm not going to let budget dictate who gets seen.
What would I want from you?
To start with, show me your comic and site that you would like me to put forward.
Then I would need an image suitable to go on a postcard or bookmark (front) and a description (back).
I would need this by (at the very latest
) the last day of October. A good example would be your logo, your main characters, a small comic example, or something snappy.
I'll provide you with details on a need to know basis.
I am a graphic designer by trade, so I can work with pretty much any image, and make your materials. But one with the correct proportions to start with would be stellar. At the end if there are any left, I can post them to you for your own delectation, or carry on stuffing them into my merch when sold online.
