@ a Random Ninja
The Itis lol that's right!!!! Banana Pudding is just like gooey tylenol for me T.T

@ Excalibur
That's cool, but yo! Appreciate you lookin' anyway you know! I'm perfectly capable of following normal proportions but I'm avoiding it in this series because it restricts the freedom I'm looking for. I get sort of bored always following the rules.

lol Hopefully I have alot of people that atleast want to read it. I'm only gonna be sellin them for like 5 to 7 dollars at the conventions you know. I'm thinking self publishing might be the way to go. Apparently things aren't gonna fall in your lap, so you gotta push out here man! lol

Unless you have a ton of chapters/pages that justify that cost, you should consider lowering your rate to no more than $1.50-$3.00 (or whatever will give you a slight profit over what you paid for the printing costs). $5-$7 sounds like what you'd pay for a standard book rather than comic issue. At your current level, if you charge at a high rate you'll likely have a hard time selling your stuff.

Well a volume would be 8 issues so roughly 136 pages or so. It's a good amount of pages you know. I've seen others sell less for alot more so I'm not real sure on how low I should go, but I thought 5 was reasonsable for like 8 issues. If I can get more than that done I'll give it a shot. I have til next May.

actually, i hate to say it yaz, but ceta's right. i mean you can buy a 200 page shonen jump manga for 8. i'd pay that much for one of your's, but unfortunately i don't think a lot of other people would. but of course, once you get established, you can start printing more and selling for more, ya know?

Hmmm Then we shall adjust! I'll shoot for $3 haha and hope i make a pretty decent profit. And I'll shoot for 204 pages. Thats 12 issues. Bleh after all gotta start somewhere right?
