And wrapping up coverage from Toronto Comicon 2018, I posted the panel discussion by the Chapterhouse Comics creators. The panel included Keith WTS Morris publisher at Chapterhouse Comics, Andrew Thomas creator of Auric of the Great White North, ‘Fearless’ Fred Kennedy creator of The Fourth Planet, and Paris Alleyne creator of Haven. During the panel, they discussed how books are produced, the process of publishing and some of the obstacles of making your comic for the first time, hints about collaborating with others in the creative process and the differences between working with a publisher or Kickstarter. It’s very educational so I definitely recommend you check it out.
