Today's Archive Dive is from November 2011:
I’ve been told that breaking into the comics industry is easy, it’s the staying in that’s hard..
I’ve been working in comics since 1989, so I thought I would share what I’ve learned over those years that helped me keep working. Some seem obvious and others outright stupid, but some people don’t seem to know them.
This advice applies to not just pencilers, writers and other credited comics-makers, but all freelancers and staff people. In fact, it’s pretty good advice for anyone in business.
It's got a lot of good advice -- for people working for publishers and independent cartoonists. It's worth reading and discussing here: Staying In.
