The Biggest Reason You Won't Make It in Comics

The Biggest Reason You Won't Make It in Comics

The road to a sustainable career in comics is not an easy path to walk. There are many obstacles and hardships along the way - a whole list of reasons you won't make it.

But there's one reason, in particular, that stands out to me. It's probably the biggest reason of them all, but it's also easily overcome with patience and sincerity. 

That reason is that you're trying to break in alone.

Don't Break In, Build a Career

Last week I wrote a blog post about how new talent fits into the Image Comics model, if at all, and people responded it to well.

Despite that, or perhaps because of it, I had a tough time deciding how to follow up the article, but in the end I decided to write the post you're reading here now because I wanted to expand on one aspect of a topic I touched on in that last post.

And though this week's post, like last week's, is directed towards the Comic Industry and comic creators, I think what I have to say holds true for just about any creative industry.
