We need to talk about independent comic book production. Not independent as in anyone but the Big 2 (Marvel & D.C.). But independent, one your own, no backing from anyone comic book making. This is a long thread (#makingcomics), so be prepared.
Please tag or share with ANYONE you know who makes comics. I feel like this is an important thing to discuss openly.

Over the last 18 months, but specifically over the last 9, I have discovered the reality of the mountain we are trying to climb.
Please don’t think I thought it would be easy in any way, but after 9 months of trying to sell Eliteware, many lessons have been learned.

As independent creators, we are alone when it comes down to it.

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).
