@AcmeDarryl @OKComics Thanks, Darryl! Darryl's latest non-fiction book, Billionaires, is out now from @DandQ
RT @AcmeDarryl: I bought this excellent @andicomics book from @OKComics. You should buy it too, because it’s hilarious and beautifully draw…
RT @PeterBangs: I really want this book soon. @andicomics is one of the UK's best and most under appreciated and versatile cartoonists.
If you're in the UK and looking for a copy of The Book Tour you can find copies @page45 @GoshComics @OKComics (any other stores stocking it, lemme know and I will put the word out) @topshelfcomix
@vmspod @evandorkin A real danger of turning something that is supposed to be a pleasure into a chore.
@evandorkin Also, weirdly, TV/movie people care about awards. Dunno why. It has def been an opportunity to get more eyes on my book which has been out 8 months. Or not. Who knows?
@evandorkin As you say, comics is too big. There is no way I could read a fraction of that stuff. Hats off to anyone who takes on the responsibility but it seems like a heavy burden that could be spread more widely.
@evandorkin I don't envy the job of the judges. A bewildering number of categories and a huge amount of reading
Congrats to Ed and @seanpphillips for their Eisner for Pulp and to @DerfBackderf for Kent State! Well deserved.
What is it about male dominated creative industries that makes them toxic dumpster fires? Oh, yeah...
@JoshuaDysart It's hard to see how an agent could operate within direct market comics as they make a living from selling rights. With licensed and wfh that doesn't present many opportunities. They will also be horrified by 'standard industry practices'.
@JoshuaDysart @WGAWest @sfwa @MaryRobinette Yep. You can also get that sort of advice through an agent. That still doesn't help when a company basically says, if you don't like it, sue me. Many clauses are garbage but who can afford to prove it in court?
@JoshuaDysart @WGAWest @sfwa @MaryRobinette It is too much to ask any one org to fix the err 'unique challenges' of the comics industry but getting advice on contracts is a start.
@JoshuaDysart @WGAWest @sfwa @MaryRobinette They have a lot of resources to advise authors so that will be helpful.
@JoshuaDysart @WGAWest @sfwa It's going through some kind of approval process but I heard it from @MaryRobinette
