Facebook, Twitter, and now Google+ are the easy solution to finding success as a cartoonist, right? Just post about your stuff and the audience will come (with money)! We all know it’s not that simple, and I’m grateful to have two super-smart cartoonists on the show to navigate through the confusing labyrinth of choices and practices facing an independent comics creator.

Ryan Estrada creates many comics, the latest of which, Aki Alliance, is available as a free download for your mobile or tablet device!

Janni Ho is a children’s book illustrator and comics creator who recently designed the branding for the Ann Arbor District Library Summer Game!

Together we talk about how marketing/networking is “just talking to dudes”, and what the difference is between a Sales Ninja and a Sales Samurai. Special appearance by Eli Neiburger of the Ann Arbor District Library!
