Indie Comic Empire: Making & Marketing Comic Books Step by Step

Welcome to mayhem!


Turn your IP into an entertainment empire. 

Want to sell your screenplay but don’t have an agent? Do you have a completed novel or comic script but haven't figured out how to market or publish your content in a way that earns steady revenue?


The comic & manga publishing industry brings in over $2,000,000,000 in revenue each year. And the independent comic book space brings in over $300,000,000. Crowd-funded comics bring in an additional $50,000,000. Just in the United States alone.

Learn how traditionally & self-published comic creators regularly earn five and six figures annually from their comics & graphic novel projects by building a brand that utilizes collectibles, conventions, and the Hollywood machine.

Wondering why you should grow your IP on a base of comics & graphic novels? 

#1: Major film/TV producers are more likely to option/buy IP with a pre-existing audience base (your comic/book).

#2: Booking a lit agent/manager is MUCH easier for published comic creators than undiscovered screenwriters and novelists. You don’t pitch them, they find you.

#3: Funding/producing a graphic novel costs roughly the same as a short film, but can have 10x the impact.


#4: The independent comic book industry brings in $350,000,000+ in revenue every year. It’s not uncommon for creators to get a five/six figure piece of that pie BEFORE ever licensing the TV/Film rights to their IP.
