Sunday 16th Oct 1.00-2.00pm Comics Clock Tower, Council Chamber
Independent publishing and self-publishing isn't just a means to critical acclaim but to concrete, commercial success. Page 45's biggest-selling graphic novel of 2015 was independently published beating everything from DC, owned by multi-millionaire mega-corps Time Warner. Page 45's biggest-selling comic was self-published, beating everything from Marvel, owned by multi-billionaire Disney.
With independent publishers you can retain creative control, ownership and be nurtured like nowhere else, fostering long-lasting, personal relationships with retailers and review sites which will prove invaluable throughout your career. We'll show you how. On the panel we have:-
Ricky Miller (Director, Avery Hill Publishing)
Katriona Chapman (self-publisher, freelance for larger publishers and part of Avery Hill)
Andy Oliver (Editor-in-Chief, Broken Frontier, pioneer review site and brand-new self-publisher!)
Stephen L. Holland (Festival patron, Page 45, award-winning comicbook retail)
Come and hear answers to the questions which you've yet to think of.
In partnership with Page 45
