So you want to do a comic strip, huh? You have a great idea and/or a burning desire but you have no clue what to do next?
Here's a list of Do's and Don'ts that may help.
But first, let's get through the bad news right up front, so you can determine how burning your desire really is.
The bad news is, this is an extremely competitive business. Look at the comic page in your newspaper. How many strips do you see there? 15? 30? Maybe more? How many of them are NEW? How many have been there since the invention of paper? Now consider this: there are roughly 200 syndicated comic strips out there, battling it out for a bit of precious space on that comic page. If you could see the comics in every newspaper in the country on any given day, you'd see pretty much the same strips in every paper. There are 30 or so that have a lock on the comic page -- some for decades.
