Wanna Help?

March 26th, 2011

From my twitter, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help support a book like Echoes.  Or, y’know, Echoes specifically.

1) Tweet about the book. Facebook about it.Tell your shop owners and other customers at your LCS. TELL PEOPLE YOU LOVE IT, & THEY’LL TRY IT!

2) Write an Amazon review for the HC. It’s available for Pre-Order NOW.  Books with positive reviews sell more copies. No, really. They did a study.

3) Go on Goodreads or @comixology and do the same. Like it, review it, whatever. More recommendations means more readers!

4) Harvey Awards. If you’re a pro, go on to www.harveyawards.org and fill out the ballot. We’re eligible for ECHOES and for TUMOR, too.

5) Give your copies away! If you have a friend who’d dig it, give it to ’em! Let them try it, or direct them to @robot6 for the 1st 2 issues for free.

6) And most importantly, BE A CHAMPION. Stand up for the books you love (even if they’re not mine!) And push them.

7) PRE-ORDER YOUR COMICS!  Tell your local retailer you want the ECHOES HC for 19.95 from Top Cow in PREVIEWS NOW.  If you don’t pre-order you absolutely WILL NOT find it at your store.

Collaborate

March 22nd, 2011

One of the things that drives me crazy about the comics press is that there’s a disconnect between the final product which is a collaborative effort of the entire team and what they see as the value.  Unless you’re talking about a superstar artist, for the most part, the artist gets short shrift in the process.

Rahsan and I talked almost non-stop through the process of making this book, and he served as both a sounding board and a quality meter for what i was doing.  The first reaction I wanted to from each finished script wasn’t from my editor or my usual gang of friends who read the book, but from Rahsan.  When I talked to him about the book, I knew if what I was doing was working and if what he was going to do would work.

That’s collaboration.  Rahsan and I have collaborated in one way or another on a couple hundred pages of comics at this point, and, hopefully, that’s just the beginning.  Because he brings something to my writing that no one else can.  Himself.

Thanks buddy.

Echoes #4 is in stores this week, and in it you can see two of the most beautiful pages of comic art ever printed.  You’ll know ’em when you see them.

 

You’ll never scrub hard enough, Brian.
