More Comics Theoretical Stuff That YOU Don't Care About

Warren Ellis posted about this today and I think it's fucking rad:

Basically its a cheat sheet that came out something like forever ago on the 22 panel formats that always work when illustrating a comic. It's fascinating to look at these and say to yourself, "Yep...they sure do." Good to know as someone who wants to write. I'm sure they are even more helpful for artists and editors.

Hey, does anyone want to do a magazine with me? Could really be about anything, but I think it would be cool to try MagCloud out. Basically you send this company PDFs that you want in a mag and they do all the distribution for you....You just set your own markup per issue and sell away. I think we'd need an artist, a photographer and someone to handle the PR at the very least. I've got some people in mind, but I don't know what their schedules are like. I'd love to be able to put something out in the next year or so. As always, anyone interested, give me a shout.

EDIT TO ADD (Because I think this should be part of this discussion as well): InPrint is another one of these DIY publishing companies. Basically the artists send in digital copies of their art and people can purchase them on a single print basis. No more doing expensive ass print runs only to not sell them all and end up in debt. Take a little bit of the starving out of the artist.
