There are four different ways you can pick up a copy:
Written by myself, Scott Kurtz, Kris Straub and Brad Guigar, the book is being published by Image Comics — and will be available across North America and the English-speaking world in the next 4-5 weeks. Buuut, we're putting the book on sale now as a pre-order, so that we know how many copies to reserve from the publisher's first print-run!
What does "pre-order" mean? It basically means that the book can be purchased right now, and that your order will ship as soon as that first print-run comes off the presses. If you're thinking about purchasing a copy, I'd ask that you do it in this pre-order period, as it will help our printing/delivery logistics immensely. Also, buying your copy direct from the four of us means a higher percentage to the authors. Just sayin'. :)
This book is the perfect how-to for the next generation of cartoonists who are looking to bring their art online. For years, young, creative men and women have dreamed about making a living from their comic strips. But their only avenue for success was through the slowly dying medium of newspapers. Now, more and more cartoonists are doing it on their own and self-publishing their comics on the Web. This is the book for that generation of artists.
Pick up a copy for the artist in your life!
