      I think this had some great advice about self-publishing and crowd sourcing, but some of the information about agents and other information read as completely wrong or outdated based on everything I've seen in the market so that knocked it down a few marks for me. I wish the focus had stayed on the areas that he has more experience with and had just left out areas that he isn't as familiar with.

      A great book on creating comics for a DIY person.

      This book is wonderful. I believe this book is heartfelt and realistic. Jason Brubaker tells you like it is with no flowery language to hide what it's like when it comes to being an indie artist. This book is not your typical how to book, it doesn't tell you how to write a script or how to draw. You'll have to look for a more specialized book for that. Instead it gives tips on motivating yourself to start and finish a project as well as what to do with it afterwards like building a website and h [...]

      This book had some wonderful advice and ideas I hadn't even thought of. There was information I was already familiar with, tons of new ideas, plans or insights into things I've been thinking of doing and breakdowns of how he got to where he is. Again, some of the info might be redundant to people who have been making their own comics but there are a lot of nuggets buried in there and you can always learn something new. Highly recommended for anybody making their own comics whether you've been at [...]

      There are so many "how to" art books out there, but when it comes down to the nuts and bolts of actually BEING a working artist, information is frustratingly scarce - Even moreso for those interested in graphic novels. This author seems very down to earth and is eager to share what he learned along the way while publishing his own graphic novel. I really enjoyed this book. It's a fun read, and is optimistic without being naive. If you're willing to put in the hard work and sacrifice for your dre [...]

      I'm always skeptical of books written by authors without extensive experience and success in the area of their topic. It's clear that Brubaker's success was no fluke, though. The man has done his research and put in a ton of work creating and publishing his graphic novel, all of which he details in this book. It's hard to tell if his advice will work for everyone, but I'm certainly looking forward to applying some of it to my future comic projects.

      An amazing resource for aspiring comic artists! Using his own experiences, Jason Brubaker talks about the best way to go about starting and finishing your graphic novels, the business side of posting the pages online for free, and how to stay inspired and keep going. He also makes it clear that things change, people are different, and we must learn to adapt and do our own research. Very inspiring and fun to read!

      Insights from one person's experiences as an indie comics maker and micro-press owner. I found the budgeting and kickstarter fundraising sections most interesting. Many networking tips and resources for comic-creator owned presses through out the book. This book is aimed at individual writer-artists who are trying to figure out business models that might support their work (or at least a portion of their work) in a notoriously low margin industry.

      Quite possibly the best book on the business of comics I've read. My personal take away from this book exceeds way beyond my expectations.

      Informative! The audiobook is better with it's extra bits and author's performance! :D

      Useful for self-publishing manga and DIY graphic novels. Not useful for creating a comic book studio. Self-Published by author.
