I gotta tell ya. All this stuff with EVS, Edwin, Mike, Doug, the die hard fans of each. WC this, Cherries that, soy ops this, schemes and scams that. Wtf. These are grown men, right? I'm about done with all of them. I can barely go on their profiles or channels anymore...
....because all they ever do is talk about their 90210 drama about who dumped who, and who betrayed the other. I'm a fan of all of them, but I'm starting to think they would rather the rest of us suffer thru this nonsense then to be adults AND TAKE IT IN PRIVATE!! We don't...
...know the full story, and we never will, and none of them are gonna tell us, so why do we have to put up with only selected info of some bs that none of us should really even care about. I used to look forward to tweets and vids from all these guys. Now I'm rolling my eyes...

Nothing new to report except that comic sales are down again. And now we've heard how retailers are being encouraged the blockchain small press creators. So I thought I would share something with all of you. I was always a big @Marvel guy. Sure, I bought some @DCComics. Marvel

When the big 2 failed to produce something adequate I went back to my second love. Small press books. I've always liked independent comics. I was there when Elfquest, Grendel, TMNT and a host of others came on the scene hear it I bought them and loved them all. How did a kid

I get asked something like this at every convention and often through email or DMs: "Could you give advice on pitching ideas to companies?"
Presumably, because I've been in a position to be on the receiving end of the pitch process. Well buckle up, we're going on a short ride!
This advice is free and it's relatively simply to follow. Your mileage may vary (so many car metaphors), so I hold no responsibility here.
#1 - Check their website to make sure they accept submissions. Some will open submissions from time to time, so you may have to wait a bit.
#2 - See how they want to receive submissions (ie: link to a pitch package, attached to an email, mailed copy of package) and in what format they want that package submitted (PDF, a Word document and jpegs, physical print...that sort of thing).
