I’m not sure how I end up finding these random videos.

I guess this is a sign that I am spending too much time surfing the internet instead of working on my comic book like a good little WebComic creator, but I found this video.

It could be considered political but doesn’t have any real call to action or push an agenda. It is more informative than political.

Warning! This is not directly related to making webComics, so feel free to skip reading this article and come back for tomorrows article on something cool related to something cool related to webcomic creating.
Star Wars Disney Characters

Princes and the Beast

Looking for a quick way to promote your comic, blog, or other project?

An easy way to create a little buzz is to steal I mean borrow someone else’s brand.

If you look at huge franchises such as Star Wars, Disney, Marvel, DC, etc, etc you have people who are just crazy for these characters.  You have people that want to see everything and anything related to them even if it isn’t from the companies that own those properties.

If you create works of art that feature these characters, you have an opportunity to build up viewers and possibly convert some of them into fans.  Just creating copies of your favorite characters isn’t going to bring in a flood gate of people; your art has to have some distinct qualities.

Found this while doing research on Alan Moore. Even though I have only read “Watchman”, I am already putting him up on a pedestal.

  • This is a full length documentary so it is long.
  • He talks about a lot of things and not just writing or comics.
  • He talks about adult things so don’t watch in front of kids or at work.
  • There are a few images of a sexual nature (again, no kids or work).

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Let me know what you think in the comment section below.

The Madman of Magic Comic book is scheduled to launch January 1, 2013.  That is 21 days away.  With all the excitement of finding a new printer, preparing kickstarter rewards, etc; I have had little time to plan the actual marketing for the launch.

With such little time, I will be limiting my marketing efforts on this launch and instead schedule in time for the second comic book launch.

This video gives some great resources and practical tips for planning and learning about the best way to get free publicity and how to properly utilize your paid strategies.

I hope you enjoy the video as much as I did.
