ComicLab

What’s the best process for submitting your work to the Eisner Award committee? Dave and Brad get some great advice from Jackie Estrada, who has been in charge of the awards since 1990. But first, Brad’s sons ask how they got their names… and the answers are revealing.

Questions asked and topics covered…

  • Eisner Award advice
  • Intermittent updates
  • An “About” page for your cast
  • Applying the “webcomics business model” to other types of media
  • Do you have to respond to every comment?
  • Is RSS really dead?
  • Branding
  • Paying for Instagram advertising
  • Thanks for the kind words

Webcomics Confidential

Webcomics Confidential is a video series that I started for my subscription site, Webcomics.com. I’m making some of the archive episodes public on my YouTube channel. There are now 31 shows available, covering everything from how to get more Patreon backers to self-publishing your first book. And along the way, we discuss burnout, web hosting, understanding legal terms, and much more. Be sure to subscribe using the handy button below!
