@Mark_Millar was kind enough recently to put together a document outlining what new creators should expect from the industry and how to conduct themselves.
millars golden secrets for comic book creators
One part that was highlighted was how important final order cutoff is and he encouraged us to go out and spread the word.
Here’s a few examples of what we have done as a group to try and drive the book.(I’ll add more as they come along)

One put together for twitter and Facebook
Final order Cutoff
Ive arranged for 40 copies to be available at my home town comic shop in Hamilton NZ (I’m based in Scotland these days) The idea here is that Chris (store manager Mark One Comics) can pass them on to my family and friends and any other passionate supporters on the condition that they make a donation to the hero’s initiative as well.
How you can help
If possible could as many of the Millarboard regulars please like/follow/share the above articles and promotional material as we all endeavour to spread the good word.
If any of the other winners are up to anything else please post below to let everyone know how you are getting along
Also if any retailers are out there reading feel free to reach out to us as many have indicated we are willing to do in store signings and help out any way we can.
I’m personally available to travel anywhere in the North of England (lets say Manchester to Leeds up) and Scotland and can make my way to any store who would be keen to have me so we can help raise some money for this cause
I don’t have any other published work currently so I’m not promoting myself by pushing other books I just want as many people as possible to have the same opportunity I did and make sure the annual is a success. Even if someone wants shelves stacked for a day I’m more than happy to help out
