Self Publishing Manga and Comic Artists TipsI've self published using MangaStudio EX4 and other programs and every so often I get asked questions from starting out artists. I get asked a lot of questions by BOTH Comic and Manga artists. The biggest question I left at the bottom. I get asked that the most and it will have the longest reply and explanation so thus being at the bottom.
Is it worth self publishing?
Yes and no. Yes if you have a good fan following and get reviews it can turn out to be something you could earn a living off of. There have been many self published artists we know and love that start out on lulu.com without a penny to their name and now their books are movies. Most of them had low expectations but left their book up for sale. No if you have no fans and no one has read your book. It's very hard to make any sales if no one knows you, your work, your stories, your skill level and even harder without reviews. It's best to gain a fandom first. Easie
