This is the only book of its kind, devoted to how to get started and make it in the comics industry as a writer. Loaded with solid information, this practical guide was written to help comics writers get their stuff published and find work in the field. The business practices and techniques used by successful comics writers are included in over 30 interviews with comics professionals, illustrated by examples of their work. Sprinkled throughout the book, there are also informative and often amusing quotes from professionals. Both of these unique features add a friendly human face to the seemingly impenetrable world of comics publishing.
