[shameless plug]
I'm not sure if many of you know, but when I'm not churning out half-baked warbands, I'm part of a comic writing group called Tangent Artists.



We have three webcomics we update every weekend. They are:

CRIT!: Our playful poke at fantasy. A must for any RPG player out there.

Donuts for Looking: A parody of ourselves, and a slice-of-nerd-life comedy.

Skeleton Crew: A slightly more pet project between myself and my sister (who's both a writer AND the artist.) It's got horror, comedy, action, romance... Best described as "Teen Titans meets the Munsters."

I've had a treat working on the comic the last few years, but if we're ever going to break even on it, we need to spread the word around. So please, check it out. If you like it, tell your friends! If you don't, LIE.

I hope your comic projects get the recognition they deserve!
I'm actually not sure what ways are best for reaching your relevant audience.. I guess you're already signed up for http://topwebcomics.com/ ? I realize it's a challenge to lure those rabid goblin fans away from what they know and love, but it seems there should be some overlap of interest between what's popular around there, and your stuff.

Are you keeping a presence at any cons and shows? In my experience, the smaller the show the more willing the audience will be to give your stuff a chance. Also, the cheaper an artists' table will be Wink
At the big shows, everyone's just qeueing to meet their big stars, and you'll get drowned out in the information overload.

Other than that, just stay a positive presence at any relevant online communities, and keep your comic collective as a signature.

Best of luck turning this thing profitable!

Have you ever checked out KING OF RPGs? My friend Jason wrote it, and it's quite good.

I like your stuff!

FKSN: Yeah, we've been hitting all the cons close to us (we've found that the Anime cons net us the most cash), but we're limited in our range thus far. I have not tried "topwebcomics"... I definitely will. Thanks for the link. (If you see "Tangent Artists" on there, make sure you give us a vote! Wink )

Ordo: I have seen that comic, actually. Haven't read it all the way through, sadly, but I know it exists. I'm glad you like... pass it along, if you get the chance!

I'll pass it on if YOU do Wink

(by the way, page 58 of crit, for some reason, doesn't lead to page 59. Just noticed it this morning. I don't run the web-portion, so it probably can't get fixed till Sat.)
