Ah man, I hope I can scrounge up some cash for it. This month has been kind of lean.

How secretive should I be with a work I don't intend to post online in its finished form? I've never sold something as print-only.

It's a 7-page comic in the sketch/thumb phase that I want to get more opinions on because I can't make up my mind (it's really hard to read it like I don't know who the characters are) and I've gotten conflicting opinions on it.
Post a request to get critique done via private message?

Private message would work. Is it the one you posted on FCP? I'll see if I can get some feedback on it soon.

You could also put it on G+ to a comic creators only circle.

Is the G+ community good for comic creators? I've never heard of it. o_o

I'm not too fond of the layout of G+, but it's been pretty good to me when I remember to log in. I have about 80 comic artists in my circle. And sometimes we do hangouts where we draw and can see eachother's screen.

That's really awesome. I'm stuck with Facebook, but I have a lot of artist friends on Facebook so I guess that works. I just don't know a whole lot of people using G+; there was a huge rush of people jumping into G+ when it went live, but now everyone I know retreated back to Facebook.

I....can't stand facebook, sooo. XD

G+ does have nice features, otherwise I'd just put it in the same category as facebook.
*smiles blankly at the whole facebook/G+ conversation because I'm DUUUUMMMMMM and OOOLLLDDDD and can't internet anymore*

You can do art on G+?

Nah, but you can network with artists!

No one's too old to do Facebook/G+. My 50+ year old teachers use Facebook quite well.

Would I be able to join that comic circle in G+? I've been feeling lonely being the only person in my circle of friends (art friends too) to be working on a comic.

But I guess I'd need more info as to what a comic creators circle actually does. Haha.

This list includes both longform and shortform comics. Have fun. XD

Fun fact: My Kickstarter just hit $40,000. That means I'm breaking even on the project!

Wondering how the hell that works? Watch.

$40,000
- $4,000 (Kickstarter takes 5% of the total. Amazon will likely take another 5% in fees.)
- $6,500 (The artists' bonuses.)
- $8,000 (Printing, storing, and shipping the books.)
- $17,000 (Artists' pay. A $50-per-page page rate for a 350-page book, my own contribution notwithstanding.)
- $4500 (Amount I borrowed from household expenses to get Poorcraft (my previous project) to print while the business went broke from paying SP's artists.)

So, basically, in early July, It will be as if I woke up one morning with 4,000 $30.00 books to sell, having invested nothing to finance their creation!

I'm pretty pleased with this.
