“…I just want to draw comics…”
While I was exhibiting at Wizard World Philadelphia over the weekend, I was invited to join a panel discussion about digital comics. During the conversation, a successfull creator said a phrase that makes me cringe every time:
“This is bad advice but… I don’t want to be involved in the business side, I just want to make comics.”
Now this person and I am on very friendly terms, so I took him to task quite openly. But I think it’s time to codify our stance towards this attitude.
