iFanboy Making Comics Podcast #2 – Finding Collaborators

Show Notes

Running Time: 00:11:48

Teamwork!

Josh Flanagan is back with Andy Schmidt to bring you a weekly dose of advice on breaking into and making comics!

This week, they discuss the challenge of finding collaborators, whether it be a comic book writer looking for an artist, or vice versa. The relationship is an important one, and it’s of the utmost importance to find the right partners when making comics. Andy and Josh talk about the right ways to go about the search, and what to look for in a partner, given both of their experience.

Andy is the founder of the online comic book school Comics Experience, as well as a former editor at Marvel Comics and IDW Publishing. Josh Flanagan has been working on iFanboy.com, talking, reviewing, and thinking about comics for over a decade, as well as writing and creating some of his own.

If you’re interested in going further, you can check out Comics Experience, where they offer live, online courses in writing, drawing, coloring, and lettering comics, as well as a workshop community, where creators can interact with and get feedback from other creators.

    great show, i love this podcast series. it’s helping me out a lot. To be honest, it felt like a punch in the stomach w/ Andy said that collaborating is like “dating”. I don’t have a great record w/ dating despite my great personality*sigh*. Guess I’ll have to collaborate w/ myself, story of my life. Thanks again.
