iFanboy Make Comics Podcast #15 – Pitching

Show Notes

Running Time: 00:15:16

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

It’s all about the pitch! You’ve got a great idea? Then you’ll need to pitch it. That requires knowing who to talk to, how to talk to them, and figuring out what they want to hear. For some, it’s terrifying. Andy and Josh talk about the age old art of the pitch, and what that actually means in today’s comic book industry. Granted, after you do the pitch, you’ve still got to make the comic book. But one step at a time…

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!
