Hello from the edge of Our Lady of Grace my friend,
So do you want to know the secret to the massive selling comic? I figured it out. What does Saga, Watchmen, and Batman Damnned have in common? Aside from insane sales numbers? I mean what comic creator doesn’t want those numbers? Well you start off with strong story telling, fantastic art, but lots of comics have those going for them, what makes those books so special?
They are unafraid of the penis. All of those books feature a penis prominently, and frequently. They just casually drop the penis on the page for all to see. It’s necessarily gratuitous, it’s not necessarily about titillation, just there is a penis in the scene.
So there you have it. Make great stories, with great art, and remember to drop a penis into the book every now and then.
The Penis: mightier than the sword for comic sales.
We’re still looking for backers on the kickstarter, lots of backers.
We should have some very cool stuff to announce soon, and when we hit 30% we will be doing a live art stream that will be something of an addendum to the first book. It is not a hard core cannon story but something that tickled the back of my brain the right way. The next part of that will be when we hit the 70% funded mark and then a final one when we hit 100%.
