I'd taken some pointers from one Jim Shooter, who I understand was the former EIC at Marvel: he'd offered a comics writing seminar at a comic con I went to. I was in the presence of greatness, let me tell ya! I also had taken many courses in creative writing in college, as well as follow Chuck Dixon's writings on the subject.
OMG I would have LOVED to have been there for that! The closest I came to comic greatness was meeting Stan "THE MAN" Lee at a book show years ago. What a great guy!

Not yet. But, I'm investigating self-publishing via Amazon, as well as designing my own site.

Now here's the rub: I would allow for enough copies to be sold to be profitable, but I also have an eye on the collectibility aspect. Which means, when those copies sell out, they sell out completely.

For me, meeting Shooter, was perhaps the greatest experience in my creative life. I was honored to meet him, to learn from him, and yet, even more honored to meet him.

Let me rephrase it: meeting him and learning from him, were the gretest experiences in my creative life.

Dont get ahead of yourself. You have to get a following, or nothing will be colletable if nobody knows who you are, y'know? I can recommend two decent small publishers that like to take on indi's - you should try that route for the experience if nothing else, and if you CAN land something with them, you save yourself the self publishing fee's. As part of Amazon, you're one of how many thousands of unknowns with no real advertizing backing? If you can get with a publisher, even a small house - you'll not only get the experience of dealing with the market, you MIGHT get lucky, get picked up, and have someone else do the dog work for you.

Feel free to PM me and I'll give you the info if you want. I can also get you some info on hooking up with indi booksellers and comic shops that are the backbone of the industry and can help get your name out here with hard-core readers. If you're actually good at what you're doing, that could be a strong first step.

LOL I got what you mean. For me it was meeting and hearing Stephen King speak in Georgia last year. That was a life long dream.

Here's a link you might find some helpful info on.

Please do. I'll take whatever suggestions in this regard, that you can forward to me. My biggest concerns are, one, I get to retain full ownership of my characters; two, that they'll be color (I don't do b&w comics, and such a format would not lend itself well to what I am wanting to do with the title); three, that it would be aimed for mature readers, and four, that I get good exposure and promotion. Beyond this, all we'd have left to examine would be the editorial and business aspects of the venture.

Thats because you believe that just wrapping a new package on it or applying your terminology to it somehow magically changes the act. Labeling it anti choice allows people like yourself to discuss it for something that it is not, and that is moral. You can sling your negatives all you want, it means nothing to the argument. I am pro-life. I value human life. When the morality of passing judgement on human life becomes the function of man (or women), then we see just how easy it is to decide that even the most innocent among us have no value IF the women decides its to much of an inconvenience to her. I respect your decision to not have children, that is your choice. I would pity the child left to be raised by your values and character. Why not just get yourself medically sterilized and be done with it?
NO, as far as I'M concerned, you are ANTI-CHOICE, because you want to make sure that a woman has NO choice other than to stay pregnant and give birth. You can call yourself "prolife" all you want. It makes no difference to me.

I'm a happy "done after one" (one child by choice) mom, by the way. And I pity any child who has anti-choice extremists for parents.

Who says she would be "throwing her life away" by keeping her baby?
Well, I can think of several reasons why being a teen mom would NOT be a good thing, for any teen girl.

LIFSTYLE #2 - LIFE AS A TEEN MOM:

- Missing school, falling behind in classes
- Getting up two or three times at night to feed a baby
- Endless diaper changes, including stinky ones
- Losing friends who don't want to be around crying babies
- Staying home with a crying baby while friends are out having fun
- Missing high school graduation, or even having to drop out of school
- Losing out on the dream job/career originally planned

That's why I think it's a good thing for teen girls to be sexFREE (meaning free FROM sex). Being sexfree gives teen girls the greatest advantage they can have; their freedom to BE a teenager, without the tremendous burden of teen motherhood.

It's wonderful how much freedom a teen girl has when she ISN'T pregnant. Girls need to think very carefully about all they risk losing by having sex and possibly getting pregnant. They need to think about it BEFORE having sex for the first time, not afterward. If they only think of it afterward, it may already be too late.

Here we go again...
Yet another girl claiming to not wanting kids but had them anyway and whines about it.
Actually This girls story is very common and my heart does go out to her. Many girls grow up in major dysfunction..example; having a selfish, self centered mom...perhaps one who neglected,abused or didnt't even put their children as top priority. They grew up being afraid to mother a child because they are afraid of becoming their mom or dad to their child.
Sad.
SOME childfree (no kids by choice) girls and women may have grown up in a dysfunctional home. Then again, many have grown up in happy, highly functional families and STILL don't want to have children. They prefer doing other things, like focusing on their jobs/careers or other pursuits they enjoy instead.

It seems to me that you're just pissed at the idea that women can choose to REJECT motherhood with no penalties whatsoever. Tough luck for you. They CAN reject it, and they don't need your approval or permission to do so.

For all anti-choice morons, sASSy included, who seem to think a woman can never be happy UNLESS she has children, here are a couple of posts that contradict that idiotic assertion.

Lady DC I respect you for being honest. I donít have kids. I am pushing 40 years old. I just donít like being around babies/kids too long. I am nice to my friendís kids. But they arenít mine. I donít have the financial burden of taking care of them. So I am not stressed like my friends. However, if I had my own I think Iíd be depressed, seriously! It is just way too much responsibility! All of my money would be gone because children constantly want something.

Nope, I sure don't, because there is no difference, with the exception that the American women so far has murdered 9 times more humans then Hitler did. As a matter of fact, the American women with the encouragement of the progressives, have murdered more BABIES then Hitler, Mao, and Stalin combined.

Thats cool, because as far as i am concerned, you are pro-death. You can ask my daughter if she values your pity, or her life, because my girlfriend at the time, who is now my wife of 26 years, was pregnant with her, and we "chose" to have her. Its something that would be very foreign to you and your mindset because you place a high value on things like death, selfishness, and greed. Your not about personal sacrifice, because your progressive ideology is into excuses to justify something like killing a baby for your own convenience. Yeah, calling it "choice" makes it OK in your mind, because when you think your God, and are arrogant enough to believe your God, passing judgement on the life of another human, especially the child from your own seed, is like getting the oil changed. How do you feel about animals? Is it cool to choose to kill them as well?

Your right, there is a big difference. Progressives have not "found" the right to kill your kids yet outside the womb if they are an inconvenience to you. Their working on it though. Like in New York, the Governor wants a women to be able to "remove" her unborn child, for any reason, up to and including the the last month of the third trimester. Wouldn't that just make you jubilant? My guess is you would be more horrified at someone killing a puppy then a baby, but thats just a guess.
