After attending ECCC for the first time in 2014, I had finally come to the decision to create my own comic and attempt to get it published. I have been working on it on and off for over a year now around my forty hours a week at my day job. I do the writing mostly on my own and all of the art and lettering myself. I have learned everything I know from youtube tutorials, blogs ( jimzub.com is my favorite) , talking to creators in person at cons (highly recommended), and of course the obvious....reading comics. After doing an exhausting amount of work and research I have figured out.....that I have an incredibly long way to go. I do however now have a completed issue of my comic which even though I am extremely proud of, I have decided to start over. I know I can do better and I will.
