ASA's Comics Biz Launched Today

Comics Biz: The Australian Society of Authors Comics/ Graphic Novels Portfolio Ezine was launched today. Available exclusively to members of the portfolio, the ezine (edited by yours truly – the Black Mermaid Productions™ team of Jozef and Julie who are also the portfolio holders for this special interest group), will be released on the last Thursday of each month. 

We were running out of space in the ASA Newsletter to provide members with the material they were requesting so we thought this might be a good way to go. Last year we talked to comics creators around Australia and asked them what their over-riding business concern was – the universal answer was marketing. We've, therefore, given the ezine a marketing slant. Each issue will feature a lead article, a mini profile on a comics creator, marketing FAQ, legal FAQ, recommended marketing resources, and must read online articles. Additional bulletins containing time sensitive information will be emailed out to portfolio members in between the regular editions of the ezine.
