Tim Across America, pt 1! Tim visits with the New York Aspiring Comic Creators Club, a networking group for some guys who are trying to get their comics made and seen while they earn their livings doing other kinds of art. What story points do they find is easier, or harder, to get across in sequential art form? How are they publicizing their work? That and more.
Also, in Ask a Retailer, Tim talks to Matt Seneca at Bergen Street Comics, where they’ve announced that most Marvel and DC books will no longer be shelved. Why not?
