Special Edition Podcast

Make Comics #39 – Production

Show Notes

People talk about making comics all the time, but mostly they’re talking about plotting, scripting, drawing, inking, coloring, lettering and all that. But what about after you’ve got the pages done? How do you get it printed? What do you need to print a comic book? How about files? There are a lot of questions, and we try to set you straight, or at least in the right direction.

Running Time: 00:12:43

  1. Great podcast as usual, gentlemen. This is the part of the process that is a bit intimidating to me. I know next to nothing about production (proper paper stock, file types, etc.) so this was a great primer to get me thinking about those sorts of things for when the time comes to get the printers going. Thank you for what you do!

  2. This episode was great! These podcasts are great info. Keep up the good work guys. Where would I go to make suggestions for the show?
