You Must Submit

And, if you are going to submit a comic to a publisher, First Second’s Gina Gagliano has the most straight-forward explanation of the submission process you will read anywhere!!

What I found particularly interesting about her piece was that it treated established creators and new creators equally.  So often the advice to established creators is “meet us at a con” and the advice to new creators is “get published somewhere else and then meet us at a con”.  Gagliano makes it a bit more realistic, as well as achievable by breaking down what a pitch letter should look like for creators at all levels as well as what should actually be submitted along with the letter.

Gagliano is on a roll.  Her past few entries on the First Second blog have been incredibly informative (and entertaining!).  Check them out!
