If I had one word of advice for fellow webcomic artists: do some zines. Doing zines has like, quintupled my income. It's ridiculous. I'm finally earning something resembling a living wage.
I love long-form comics, but they are hard to monetize. Printing them is a pain in the ass. Short, catchy comics in PDF form have been so much faster and easier for me to produce, at consistently high quality, and they can be priced affordably for a wide audience.
One of the reasons I love doing fanzines is that the audience already knows the characters and general story. You can dive right in to something more complex without spending tons of time worldbuilding or setting things up. They're also a lot easier to market with tags.

I really haven’t made a detailed list of everything I did in the #TTRPG sphere this year. But all in all, I think it was a productive year besides all the problems.
I published #LostInTheFantasyWorld, a #Visitation #Fantasy game I developed playing with my 5 year old kid!

I made my first #SoloRPG inspired by @pangalactic #WretchedAndAlone engine, called #LostInTheDeep. It’s pretty much a homage to the last #MinesOfMoria expedition. And I have plans for a few more of these!!!
I’ve also published a few accessories for #LostInTheFantasyWorld, such as a #ColoringBook and a few pamphlets to help Mentors create adventures and scenarios! I got to work with the amazing @devilmonkey77 for this!

Let me talk about #TheDeadAreComing, my minimalist #OSR #TTRPG #Zine which is at Kickstarter right now!

You can get this game and two others at:…

Let’s dive in!
1. #TheDeadAreComing was created inspired by #ElectricBastionland and #Mausritter system and organization, as well as other influences (including #Troika). Character creation is super straightforward and gives you a lot to work with nonetheless!
2. You get details, a background, suggested names and some items that will help you determine who your survivor is and what are they like. Don’t get too attached though, life isn’t easy in a #ZombieApocalypse!
