(Originally published in 1997, updated in 2010)

"Out of print for years, this is the self-publishing guide everyone swears by. Light on technical specifics but heavy on what it really takes to be a successful self-publishing cartoonist, the co-creator of the world's longest graphic novel brings his 30-plus years of experience to a step-by-step guide to what you need to do and what work habits you require to hope for a chance at success in today's ultra-competitive direct market. Updated with new material assessing the pros and cons of the computer revolution that continues to rock the comics publishing world from top to bottom."

REVIEWS:

"...the Bible for self-publishers, collecting all the pertinent essays and speech transcriptions from Dave's long-running self-published title Cerebus... this is highly recommended reading - absolutely essential for any prospective creator, self-publisher or not... densely packed pages of invaluable advice and guidance covering virtually every aspect of starting your own comic."
- Gary Spencer Millidge, Strangehaven

"Without a doubt I would not want to enter this industry as a creator without having read this first, regardless of whether I intended to self-publish or sell my creativity to/through other publishers... Dave addresses almost every aspect of successful comicbook publication and a great many aspects of comicbook creation including the nuts and bolts of what it takes to stay on schedule and impress a potential readership into buying your wares. But as much as it's an encouragement to create professionally and hold onto your creative rights, it's in equal measure a wake-up call for those deluding themselves into imagining they have enough drive and self-discipline to do any of the above."
- Stephen Holland, Page 45
