Creators Corner: Creating Rebirth of the Gangster, Part 9– Self-Publishing and Distribution

Over the summer, I wrote a few parts in a series detailing the creation of my comic Rebirth of the Gangster (on sale now!)

In case you missed it, check out these links to the first three parts-

Part 1: The Birth of the Idea

Part 2: Brainstorming and Outlining the Plot

Part 3: Outline, Synopsis and Chapter Breakdown

Part 4: Scripting the Action

Part 5: Finding the Right Artist

Part 6: Pages in Progress and the Artist/Writer Collaboration

Part 7: Submitting the Comic and Cover Letters

Part 8: Filtering through Publisher Feedback

And now, for Part 9: The final installment in my series about creating and publishing Rebirth of the Gangster!

After being rejected by all the publishers I sent my comic too (it wasn’t completely worthless, though, since I received some good advice, as I covered in Part 8), I decided to self-publish Rebirth of the Gangster.  Self-publishing does come with a taboo, of course, but the revenue and respect given to self-publishers has been growing in recent years (The Martian was a self-published book at first, for one example of self-publishing being worth money and industry cred).

the martian

While much of self-publishing deals with the details of print and distribution, I decided to release individual issues digitally and distribute graphic novel collections of each six-issue story arc.  After I made that choice, the next step for any self publisher is to figure out how to get your comic in the hands and hearts of fans. While I would like to get printed copies to fans, frankly Diamond Distributor isn’t very friendly to independent comics–they will only guarantee payments if enough copies have been sold to stores in their ordering phase.  And I wasn’t–and still am not–in a financial position to take on that kind of risk. So, I started exploring the largely uncharted waters of digital sales.

I did some research–looking online and then sending questions to companies to get some answers about their reach, their payout structure, their editorial requirements and more.  Not only did this help me understand my options better, I was able to distill these findings into a Slant article for others: giving them a map and compass to navigate digital terrain.   That article is no longer available, since Slant went under and the domain was lost, but here’s what I wrote:

In recent years, the comic industry has been adapting to new demand for digital versions of their comics (although print is still a viable option), which has led to companies creating numerous platforms with some key differences in pricing for customer, payout to creators, editing and submission process, philosophy, and degree of involvement.  

Platforms like Selz, Pulp Free Publishing, Gumroad, and Sellfy all responded to interview requests; other platforms of note (Amazon’s Kindle, Barnes and Noble’s Nook, Comixology, Scribd, and Tapastic) didn’t respond to interview requests but were researched for the following information.  A huge thanks to Zeno Telos Press and Publishers Weekly for some of the research that supplements the interviews.

 

The Basics for Each Site

Platform Customer Cost Creator Payout and Platform Cut of Profits Editing and Submitting Process
Comixology Varies by comic–there is a section titled “Free Comics” though 50% (after credit card fees and cost from Apple, Google, Kindle) Can submit once an account has been created with company information and payment information. Get started here.
Amazon Kindle Varies by comic, but you can also join Kindle Unlimited, their Netflix-esque program.  It costs $9.99 a month and gives access to as many books as the customer wants. If the sale price  is less than $2.99, the creator gets 35%
If the sale price is greater than $2.99 and less than $9.99, the creator gets 70%*
If the sale price is more than this, the creator gets 35%
Submission information here.
Barnes and Noble Nook Varies by comic Barnes and Noble didn’t have this easily available, but a source says that as of Oct-2013, this is the payout structure:

Prices from $ 0.99 to $ 2.98 = 40%

Prices from $ 2.99 to $ 9.99 = 65%

Prices from $ 10.00 to $ 199.99 = 40%

Submit here.
iBookstore Varies by comic. 70% They didn’t list any specific requirements, but they posted this set of steps here.
Pulp Free Publishing Kevin Bricklin, founder of Pulp Free Publishing states:

“After Apple’s 30% fee, we share 70/30 with creators.  70% for the Creator and 30% for PFP (that equates to 49% of the sales price to the creator)”
There is a Premium Package–a one-time payment of $99 lets creators keep 100% of sales.

Although they don’t have editorial requirements, they do say they have the standard “ page specifications (which are required so that the comics can look good on retina devices)”, according to Bricklin.
Comics Fix
(website is offline while they relaunch their service)
8.99 a month, Netflix style–this was their pricing plan before they took their site down to reboot and relaunch it 50%

This was also what was listed before.

No information available.
Selz Varies by comic Melissa Whidjay, Selz community manager says, “All we keep is a small transaction fee on each sale, which is usually under 5% of your sale price. You get to keep the rest!” They don’t have editing requirements, but Whidjay did give this advice for file format:

It’s totally up to you! We let you sell pretty much all file types, but your best bet is to publish in PDF as it’s the most widely accepted file type for reading comics. “

Sellfy Varies by comic 95% No editing process–they’re only interested in running “ a third party [that]  manage[s] the sales and download link delivery”, according to customer service manager Matthew.
Gumroad Varies by comic 95%. The only requirement Sahil Lavingia, founder and CEO of Gumroad, gave was “the standard NSFW stuff (though since we’re not a marketplace, we can sway more freely).”

Details on how to submit here.

Scribd Netlix style subscription for unlimited comics, books, audiobooks and sheet music: $8.99 a month; there are individual texts for sale too, with varying prices There are a few different creator payout guidelines:
For an individual sale: 80% after $0.25 processing fee.
There are a few different payout options for subscription readers, depending on publishing service used by creator:
Smashwords:If books are read past the 30% mark: 60% of sales. 10 reads between 15-30% will also count as an individual sale.
Draft2Digital:

If books are read past the 30% mark: 60% of sales.

BookBaby:

55% of sales
INscribe Digital:

This is another option but the royalty structure wasn’t outlined.

Ad Revenue: 70%

Storefront: 50%

More Detailed Descriptions of Each Site

Comixology You Tube Channel

While Comixology didn’t respond to interview requests, there is some further information available about their platform. Comixology was acquired by Amazon in April of 2014.

Most people buy individual titles and issues, but Comixology does have a subscription option, although there isn’t any discount for subscribing to an issue.  They currently have thousands of titles available (7500 individual issues, 700 of which are free) and thousands of individual submit titles available (creator-owned and self published titles, not ones published by big companies like Marvel and DC).

John D. Roberts, cofounder of ComiXology and director of Submit, describes their submit program this way: “Submit has the broadest range of comics and graphic novels possible, and that’s what customers really enjoy about it.  From superhero to queer comics, slice-of-life graphic novels, all-ages manga, and beyond, the readership of Submit titles is as varied as the books submitted.”

If you’re a creator looking to submit your comic to Comixology, it has to meet their quality standards (not outlined on their website).  They say the process should take 3 months minimum, but it can sometimes be longer (6 months or longer) depending on whether the creator meets Comixology’s specifications right away, needs to make changes, or other issues.

The big specifications problem, according to Roberts, is creators producing poor digital quality when converting their files to PDF.  He says that these PDF files often “suffer from artifacting and pixilation, primarily due to excessive compression. Some of the more popular PDF tools have compression defaults that are hard to find and change, and thus we get a ton of files that we can’t use”.  He also reminds creators that they’ll be competing–on Comixology and in general–with big companies that have strong formatting for their digital content.

 

Kindle You Tube Channel

Amazon Kindle also did not respond to interview requests.  

Similar to Comixology, Amazon has content requirements, mainly formatting, that a comic needs to reach to be accepted.

Creators make less for individual issues on Amazon than they do on Comixology, so some people suggest releasing individual issues elsewhere, and then submitting graphic novels to Amazon.  They do admit that submitting individual issues to Amazon is good exposure and increases marketability.

 

Nook You Tube Channel

Barnes and Noble also did not return requests for an interview.  The most current information available is already described above.

 

iBooks Video

iBooks also did not return requests for an interview.

When submitting to iBooks consider this following information about file format, given in the Q and A here: You can submit your work for publication in the iBooks Store as an .ibooks file, where you can sell it or offer it as a free download. You can also export your book from iBooks Author as a PDF, text file, or .ibooks file which you can distribute outside the iBooks Store or through iTunes U.

eigoManga’s ComX VR Digital Manga Walk Through

eigoMANGA has announced that the company has released a virtual reality (VR) digital comic book platform for iPhone and Android devices, called ComX VR.

Available worldwide for iPhone and Android devices, the free software allows you to read manga in a VR world with any Cardboard-compatible mobile VR headset, no external controls needed.

We check out the app and show off what it’s like to read your manga in VR.

Demo-Graphics: The Walking Dead

Its been about 6 months since we last looked at The Walking Dead‘s demographics via Facebook’s data. With the season wrapping up and a new season of Fear the Walking Dead beginning, it felt like an appropriate time to see how things have changed for the show and best selling comic book series.

For this report, we’re looking at fans within the United States that enjoy The Walking Dead in comics, television, books, games, or even the characters. We’ll also compare the latest results to those of last report.

Facebook Population: Over 17 million fans in the US

In the six months since the last report the fandom population has decreased by 5 million individuals. That’s after the previous growth of 2 million and two reports ago saw a decrease of 4 million individuals. Spanish speakers account for 2.1 million fans, 12.35%. That’s a decrease of 1.2 million Spanish speakers and decrease in the percentage of the population.

Gender and Age

A year and a half ago women accounted for 55% and men 46% (with the result being over 100% due to rounding). In the previous report, women accounted for 59.09% with men accounting for 42.47%. Again, that was over 100% due to rounding.

For this latest report, women account for 53.53% and men 45.88%. When looking at age data, women account for 52.65% and men 46.89%. When it comes to relationships, it’s 52.97% female and 45.81% male. Women continue to be the majority.

Men return to being a majority, if just for a small amount. They become the majority in the 22-25 demographic and it’s a 50/50 split at 30-33.

Relationship Status

Things have dropped across the board with “single” and “unspecified” both seeing big drops as far as percentage.

Education

And of course with a smaller population, education has dipped too. Women are no longer the majority at every education level.

Gender Interest

Due to changes with Facebook policy, we’re unable to still provide this data.

Ethnicity

With a smaller population, it shouldn’t be surprising that the raw numbers have dropped. But, African Americans increased almost 3 percentage points and Asian Americans almost a half a percent. Hispanics dropped about 3.5 percentage points.

Specific Terms

But what about specific terms? Interesting enough, the majority of fans are in the United States for the comic series and Talking Dead. The latter makes sense. The rest vary in how many are in the US though most are in the 20-45% range. When it comes to gender, only those interested in video games are majority male.

And that wraps up this report! We’ll again look at these numbers when Fear the Walking Dead wraps up!

 

eigoMANGA Launches a VR Digital Comic Platform, ComX VR

eigoMANGA has announced that the company has released a virtual reality (VR) digital comic book platform for iPhone and Android devices, called ComX VR.

ComX VR is now available worldwide for iPhone and Android devices and is free to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

VR is one of the most exciting and fastest growing segments for digital media yet there has been no scalable platform for comic content, until ComX VR.

The ComX VR platform is the first of its kind that allows Android and iPhone users to read and collect digital comics immersed in a 360-degree environment, rather than being confined to the resolution of a mobile device.

ComX VR works with any Cardboard-compatible mobile VR headset and does not need to use any other external controllers because the app is developed with Gaze-input controls to allow for simple hands-free navigation and interactivity.

No sign up required for ComX VR. If users choose to create a free account, they have the ability to access and transfer their content across different devices.

Kodansha Debuts 5 New Digital Manga Series in April

Continuing its aggressive “digital-first” release schedule—debuting at least one new digital manga series every week—Kodansha Comics announced it will kick off 5 new manga series in April, with a decided bent toward high-school-set shoujo manga.

Kodansha Comics’s digital-first manga releases are part of an exciting new initiative begun last year to put a greater diversity of manga series into the market. Starting with Azusa Mase’s high-school drama You Got Me, Sempai! on April 3, April’s series debuts will be available at all of Kodansha Comics’s partner digital platforms:
You Got Me, Sempai! (debuting April 3), a breezy, beautifully rendered high-school romance about a freshman and her frosty (or is he just awkward?) sempai (Japanese title: Mairimashita, Sempai);

A.I.C.O. Incarnation (debuting April 10), the manga adaptation of the new biotech science-fiction anime produced by Studio BONES and currently streaming on Netflix;

Boarding School Juliet (also debuting April 10), another high-school romance, set against a background of a fierce dormitory rivalry—yep, it’s Romeo and Juliet set in modern-day Japanese high school (Japanese title: Kisyuku gakkou no Juliet);

Peach Mermaid (debuting April 17), a goofy, and somewhat off-color, comedy about a mermaid who makes the decision to walk amongst us in the human world—which goes perfectly well …  if she didn’t have one little problem … (Japanese title:Momoiro ningyo);

Defying Kurosaki-kun (debuting April 24), the last of this month’s high-school shoujo romances, involving one girl and the two guys she must choose between—including the mean, domineering Kurosaki-kun (Japanese title: Kurosaki-kun no iinari ninante naranai);

In addition to the 5 digital-first debuts, Kodansha Comics is also debuting Volume 1 of Fujita’s awkward otaku romantic comedy, Wotakoi: Love Is Hard for Otaku—which has recently been adapted into a new television anime series. Wotakoi debuts in both print and digital on April 17. There’s a lot of new manga coming from Kodansha Comics in April!
