By contrast, his next graphic novel was a weekly web comic, which allowed him to build a fanbase which contributed lots of money to his Kickstarter campaign.
He explains step by step how he was so successful. I now have a blue print to work with, if I decide to move forward with my graphic novel.
Unlike some books which speak general about what to do, Jason actually even gives you links and contact information to people and companies that can help in your journey.
If you are a modern day digital comic book artist or just an artist in general looking to get your art out there, proven and successful details are in here.
The only negatives I spotted in the book is that there are a handful of spelling mistakes that I was easily able to figure out. But who knows, perhaps an updated eBook will solve that and this book will be 100%.
He was one of the FIRST creators to jump into the crowd-funding pool on KICKSTARTER, and has launched TWO successful campaigns thru them. In this book, Unnatural Talent, he tells us how he did it, and how YOU can too!
He really opens up his secret strategies, and walks you thru the obstacles he faced, and the insights he discovered to make a great book, and to make that great book sell.
Lastly, he shares ALL of his resources that will help any creator get a head-start on launching their own careers as indie-authors!! MY HIGHEST recommendation.
Jason brings his wealth of experience, personal & professional in a way tht's relevant to every important aspect of graghic novel creation: from coming up with an idea & keeping motivation to what really makes a comic look professional, to web publishing, self-publishing, editors, agents, printing & so much more.
Beat of all this book is just inspiring because it comes from one who's struggled the struggle & come out well for it, and I feel he's rooting for us to as well.
If you have considered making a web comic you should read this first!
