16th February 2011 / Interviews
Good lord, but that’s a terrible pun. Anyway.
— Phil Hampton, meanwhile, has set up The Comic Academy, aimed at helping aspiring comic creators get into the industry. Part of that consists of a number of interviews with pros, talking about how they broke in to comics; what advice they have for people starting out; tips, tricks, insights, all the usual malarky. And, yes, I’m one of the pros featured.
Now, they’re running a special launch offer. If you go to the “Telesummit” page, you can either pay a fee to get unlimited access to all the Academy’s materials now and forever… or you can just sign up and wait a little while, because each of the interviews (including mine) will soon be made available for free, but only for a certain amount of time (48 hours, I think). Mine goes live on February 28th.
That link to the “Telesummit” page, by the way, is an affiliate link; if you use it to reach the site, then place an order, a certain amount of the fee is divvied up and ostensibly given to me.
I say ostensibly, because I’ve requested that the Academy takes anything due to me and gives it to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund instead. So not only are you getting something for your cash, but you’re also helping fund a very important charity. Everybody wins, as they say.
