Workshop Details

You’ve created a really great comic book or graphic novel…now what? As an independent creator, you recognize that the challenge to get retailers and the comics media to take your work seriously is at least as daunting a challenge as creating it in the first place. Luckily, there has never been a greater opportunity for passionate creators willing to hustle to get their books out into the market.

Using examples from the recent successful micro-distribution releases of books like  SCAMand  THE RED TEN, this workshop will cover important topics such as why indie and small-press creators should work with retailers, prerequisites before reaching out to begin self-distribution, what makes a retailer want to carry your book, the limitations and approaches to building a micro-distribution network, and making the leap from micro to world-wide direct market distribution.

The session will include time for Q&A, and comes with a  50+ page resource guide full of guides and templates  for running your own micro-distribution campaign!
