The Comics Advice Q&A Thread

Okay, as promised in the previous thread, this is where folks can ask any questions they might have about making comics, getting into comics, the business of comics, etc. Please keep questions on topic and to the point. Asking me "how does one get into comics" is not a pointed question, break those thoughts down more specifically. I'll try to answer as best as I can, and if I don't know what I'm talking about or have a good answer I won't bullshit you. Please keep in mind that my answers will involve my outlook, my experience and my own interaction with the field, and that there are rarely absolute answers to questions regarding the creative process or job hunting. Please keep in mind the fact that I am not technically minded, so asking me about scanning comics and DPI and photoshop will draw a blank post from me -- but perhaps Sarah might be able to jump in with a quick answer if her schedule allows. So, to you HOF faithful out there harboring an interest in making comics for fun or for "profit", feel free to use this little forum to ask any and all questions you might have about the comic book medium or industry. If this goes well we can do it every once in a while, if it bombs, back to discussing wrestling. It's all okay with me.
