Short but meaty, I hope.
- I read this article that pointed out some useful things about how our comics draw in readers. As a result, I’m thinking that useful thing would be to have multiple fast hooks and a couple of slow hooks for our online comics.
- This was an interesting post by Kleefeld. It’s true about the comparison between comics and dvds and I wish I had more than half a solid idea about what the sizzle is for comics. The obvious thing seems to be the gap-imagination that a comic reader has to have but I’m at a loss how to show gap sizzle, if you know what I mean. That would mean we’d have to do a potential reader education campaign on the benefits of gap sizzle – which is probably a larger feat than is practical. So, I’m looking for other sizzle options.
- Twelve Fingers has a nice post summarizing the main comic marketing ideas for online comics. Number 9 is something that is often overlooked – if you have a decent looking, but not too glitzy comic that might work very well.
- Webcomic Finds talks about what it’s like being the 14 year old evil reviewer. I tried to comment but blogspot doesn’t like me – I enjoyed the ranty rant immensely.
- And just because I like caricature work, I hope this book gets completed soon.
- As always, there will be more comic business news and things to see next Tuesday on ArtPatient.com.
