[SPECIAL ARCHIVE EPISODE] How to build a world-class comic book with David Pepose

Transcript

No transcript...

Since this episode David has gone on to write not only Savage Avengers, but a ton of Marvel books, but this was while he was still coming up, though he had built up a head of stream.

In this episode I talk to my good friend David Pepose, creator of Spencer and Locke, Going to the Chapel, and The O.Z., which is live on Kickstarter right now.  Here's his Comixology bio: 

After starting his career at DC Comics, David Pepose has gone on to write thousands of articles about comic book storytelling. SPENCER & LOCKE, Pepose's debut series with artist Jorge Santiago, Jr., has been praised by IGN as "a fiendishly fun take on an age-old classic."

A St. Louis native, Pepose currently lives in Los Angeles, where he works in the television industry. I met David years ago on the con circuit when he just had the first volume of Spencer and Locke, and I thought it was BANANAS.

He pitched it as Calvin and Hobbes meets Sin City, and it absolutely delivered. Plus, he's just a very pleasant human to converse with, so we got along well.  He's been blowing up recently, and his latest book raised over $20,000 on Kickstarter...in a single day. We recorded this episode right after the Kickstarter went live, so we talk about his incredible first day, and more. 

Listen to this episode if you want to learn: 

  • How to raise $20,000 in a single day on Kickstarter

  • How to deal with the press and make them want to promote you

  • How to build a world-class network

...and much more.
