How to pitch to publishers with Anthony Del Col. 

If your doing single issues, pitch TPB sized story.

Taks about putting together pitch package.

Talked about raising 350k
Question how much you need.  Answer about 50k.  Roughly 6 issues.  

Question was comic done or based on your background?  

Publishers want partners that will market the book.  They attend 20 to 30 cons a year.

Had elaborate outlie in package

Not necisary to make specific to publisher beyond cover letter and contacts.

Question how were pitch packages sent out?  Answer trying to contact editors.  
Personal marketing important.  How will they previe you off the bat.  
Good shows to pitch at
Seattle 
Wonder Con
C2E2

What are good way to get artist
Pay!
Average $100 page. 
They will want back end on royalties.  Split depends o how much you can pay up front.  

Chain of Tital.  Important.
Get NDA copyright before pitching.
Copyright is active date sent, not approved.  
Copyright whole story.  Can't 

Do you tell the ending to the story pitch package.  Mostly yes.  

Back to pich package.  
Elivator pitch for first page.  
Character desin on secondary page
Each page of package gives more information.  

Talkmto every one on what you might be doing.  Never know who will be the one to get you to the wright people.  

How to find artist.  Deviant art good place.

Back to PP.  third page has text sinopsis.  Have lots of white on page to make text less intimidating.

Image model. Finished product and they print it. 25k for image than rest go to you. Marketing is up to you. They are just middle man.

Other deals
50/50 split on property Dark Hours. They give you budget on comic. They controle property beyond comic.

Q what is benefit of image deal? Low to no interference and you controle property.

Self publishing. Like image but add printing to cost. Must go through dimond.

Being with publisher, help sell to retailers.

Know your audience who will want your book.

When pitching persistence

I saw her. I was disturbed a little. It was not a costume for her body type. I came to the conclusion that there's two kinds of cosplay : excellent cosplay and extremely awful cosplay. There's no middle ground.
