Itís another Tuesday, and Iím happy to be here! Letís just get into this weekís question, shall we?

What are the hidden steps to creating comics?

Like everything in life, there are things you donít know about when it comes to creating comics. I liken it to Sherlock Holmes vs everyone else: Sherlock sees everything, and everyone else only sees vague surface detail without really thinking about it.

Go pick up a comic book, and I want you to actually look at it. It can be any comic, but a self-published one would be best. [This is because most of your work will be self-published.] If you donít have any self-published books, look at a book from a smaller, newer publisher.

I want you to look at everything. Youíre going to emulate this. Iím just going to make a short list of the more hidden aspects, with a short blurb for each.
