The state of the comics industry today.
1. The state of the comics industry today.
For much of the past 40 years -- since the days Stan Lee and Jack Kirby saw Fantastic Four first hit the stands -- writers were usually current or former staff people. At Marvel, for example, the "Marvel Age" roster of scripters were Stan Lee, Roy Thomas, Steve Englehart, Gary Friedrich, and so on. They were all on staff as editors or assistants; the biggest exception was writer/artist Larry Lieber, who was the editor-in-chief's brother.
Today, the situation has changed.
• Image Comics (Image Central) welcomes comics with "strong personal version" but requires a completed drawn and lettered first issue for consideration.
• Vertigo Press (a division of DC Comics) offers a variety of genres and works with writers all over the world.
• Marvel Comics under new editor-in-chief Joe Quesada is opening its doors to edgier talent.
• Such smaller companies as Oni Press, Caliber Comics, and even internet-based publishers are openly co

The Best Books for Comics and Illustration
I get asked all the time which books do I recommend for artists wanting to learn about comics and illustration. There are many out there but but I've tried to narrow it down to the ones I think hold the most amount of information and will give you a wider view and understanding of comics and illustration.
George Bridgeman's guide to anatomy/life drawing. All his books are fantastic but that one in particular is a must read. That being said get all of them if you can, they all have a lot of great info. This is a great starting place because it teaches you to look for what is under the skin and how people naturally move.
Wil Eisner's Guide to Sequential Storytelling. He has a whole series out and they are all engaging and thought provoking reads. In fact not to beat a dead horse but it really is a must read for anyone making comics.
Making Comics and Understanding Comics by Scott Mc Cloud. These books go so deep into comic creation that you will never read a comic the same way again. Gre

Thinking outside the box can be tough.

:iconzeecaptainplz: of the Apocalyptic) comic, presents a tutorial on how to think outside the box to create/publish your own comic, if no publisher has discovered your work and joo want to get into the comic industry.
Step one: STORY and ART
Comic gota have a CATCHY story- come up with one, or collaborate with a writer.
Where to find a writer? Browse through stories category on DA- if anything pleases yours senses and has lots of appreciation, contact them!
If you are a writer- you can find artists who love collaborations on here as well- there's millions of student artists on this site who are interested in comic collabs, but for this your story must be solid and already popular material standing out as a written piece on it's own.
(Extra note: if you're a comic artist and want to get hired in the industry, don't set the

It's been almost 5 years since I became a member of DA. And of all those five years, I've always wished I could have the opportunity to meet my idol in person (actually I've already had!),or have those 1m pageviews or sumthin' and get to upload my drawings on a regular basis. But alas in the past five years, the only thing that I could manage to do on a 'regular' basis is lurking *ahem* around people. Sure you might have seen my last journal entry is still way back 2010, but I'm active watching and faving great artists here in DA. And the only thing a pathetic striving artist like me is to *sigh* admire these people who manage to capture us with there wonderful works and still joggle time, balancing their work, life, and passion.

How I wish I could be like them.

And so I plan to turn over a new leaf and strive hard to become like them- artists who never used 'artist's block', 'lack of inspiration', etc. just to give excuse not to continue drawing. I am now more willing to become these people I admire. And I want to start it with a new beginning. It may not have been New Year, but you don't have to wait for 12 midnight of December 31 just to change right?

I hope I will not fail. I'm now serious to pursue this pending dream of mine.

Wish me luck! :)
