Putting Together an Anthology

or, Nobody is as excited about your ideas as you are.

The latest thing I've been working on is a horror anthology. I liked putting Don't Be Afraid into an actual comic shop so much  that I decided I'd try to do a couple of issues over a year. The goal is to start in October and put out three issues over the year and a forth one next October. Four issues doesn't seem like too big a task and I've got plenty of lead time to deal with problems, I've even got a good story telling device that I'm happy with, let's do it! What's that? No one is sharing my vision here? Anyone...

Not that NOBODY cares, it's just a really tough sell. At this level the deal is basically If I ask you and you're interested, if you can find a way to get your story drawn by someone, you're in. Simple enough, but you also have to take into account that the writers I contact aren't illustrators and have to find someone to work on their stuff. Even if they get the most dirt-cheep page rates they can get, I'm still basically saying "hey guys, who wants to spend 300 dollars?".

The project is continuing to move forward, the final product ending up differently than I'd imagined it is still a possibility, we'll have to wait and see. My art is finished, at the worst I'll still have a ten page mini comic with my name on it.
