Make Comics #49 – The Title

Show Notes

What’s in a name? Where to even start?! When you’re pitching comics, there might be nothing more powerful than the title when it comes to first impressions. With a single word, you can lose or gain eyeballs in an instant. No pressure right? But there are a lot of things to think about in terms of titling comics. Josh Flanagan and Andy Schmidt go over all the elements a creator needs to consider when naming your baby.

Running Time: 00:18:01
