“I’ve been following the podcast for a while and you’ve got some awesome resources 🙂
You’ve actually been an inspiration to me in how you’re constantly giving back to the comics community so I wanted to do the same!
I made a guide to making comics that covers everything from idea creation to art to printing and more. In case you’re interested, you can check it out here:

It’s time for today’s ComixLauncher.
A ComixLauncher is a short, actionable activity you can do immediately after listening to the show. They’re all activities I’ve done myself, and will get you one step closer to a successful ComixLaunch. They’ll transform this Podcast from a passive, lean back activity centered around Tyler James, into an active, lean-forward activity centered around YOU and your projects.
Make a secondary offer.
The next time someone asks you for anything (con, online, in person) offer it and then offer them something else.
How does it feel? What was the results?
