It’s another Tuesday! We’ve actually got a cooling trend here in Tucson, and I’m happy for it. It’s going to get in the triple digits soon enough. Let the cooler weather prevail for a while.

Anyway, let’s get into some Bolts & Nuts! This week’s question holds up a mirror: are you doing your part for comics?

(Steven, I don’t get it. My part? I’m trying to turn this into my livelihood! I’m trying to get noticed! I have to do more on top of that?!)

Well…yes and no. Yes, you can always do more [and we’ll get into that], but the things you’re doing now can also be part of doing your part.

Remember, comics doesn’t owe you anything. It’s a business of “what have you done for me right now?” There are going to be dark times when you’re frustrated as hell and you want to quit, angry at the world and thinking that you’ve banged your head against the wall long enough that something has got to give. I’m going to tell you that you’re going about it the wrong way.

Just like in life, you have to give in order to receive.
