The book is not geared to the just starting out writer or artist as one reviewer already stated. unless your rich or have a good business background this book is not for you
at least not right away
i am not sorry to own this book but i think the book could have done a better job on actual creating of ads rather then waste a few pages with comic con types of aadvertising. more tips to finding good people rather than just pluging a few talent scouts also whould be helpful
This book is my bible in terms of building my company at eigoMANGA.com. I have it secretly stashed in my desk and let people believe that I'm a comic book genius.
The blueprints are spelled out in this book so you can't go wrong. Yeah, it can be alittle intimidating sometimes so read the parts that are relevant to your needs at that time. When I started out in my dining room several years ago, I didn't need to know about worldwide distribution, now I do.
This industry is a real rat-race, with very few big time people wanting to help you. Mr. Caputo and this book is a blessing!
With a little bit of desire, work ethic, and Mr. Caputo's book, you are destined to go far in this industry. TRUST ME!
It covers the creation process, the printing process and even distribution.
If you are a future comic book creator you're going to want to have this reference tool on your book shelf. Even if you never self publish a title, there is plenty of behind-the-scenes insight.

I was in desperate need of a book of this type when I saw this. It is the best book ever written on this subject. Mr. Caputo should teach a class. Read morePublished on Feb. 5 2001 by Mike Thompson
