How to Make a Profitable Indie Comic Book


By +Tim Beyers


Welcome to the show notes for issue 50 of +The Full Bleed. This business issue goes between the panels to explain the one thing you can do to improve your odds of earning profits from your indie comics project. Specifically, we address:
  • Why creative brilliance and finding the right team may not be as important as you think, especially when the web is rich with resources to help you find potential partners. The community at Comics Experience, for example.
  • How the principles in Eric Ries' The Lean Startup can help you determine when to pay for resources to get your work into the world.
  • How $12 and a little creative planning led to the birth of The Full Bleed, all while preserving ownership of and control over the enterprise.

ALSO, A QUICK WORD ON ISSUES: While I've been able to keep up my intended twice-a-week cadence at the YouTube channel, I've had a tougher time getting the show notes ready for publish here. My apologies for that. I hope to catch up over the next two weeks, in time for this site's 1-year anniversary.
