Special Edition Podcast
Running Time: 00:20:42
We’ve got our first email question, and it’s about portfolios.
An artist trying to break into comics relies on their portfolio, either physical or digital, it’s a group of artwork specifically choreographed to show exactly what kind of comic book skills they have. But what should the portfolio highlight? Should there be superheroes? Action shots, storytelling, talking heads? A little of everything? Andy breaks down what editors are really looking for.
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 creators can take advantage of their workshops and the community to get feedback from peers and fellow creators, as well as meet people, network and get better at making comics. Also be sure to check out the creator workshops offered!
