Part of my Kickstarter campaign for the Webcomics Handbook was to offer one-on-one consultations with creators via Skype. I would research their comic and their Web site and prepare a PDF dossier on what I saw, including elements like their social media presence, merchandise, etc. It would be a comprehensive look at what they were doing as a webcartoonist.
