My Creator-Owned Comic Book SEASONS is FREE To Read!


#1

Hello everybody here on the Millarworld forums! My name is Nandor Fox Shaffer, and I am the creator and writer of SEASONS, a new comic book I’m posting online at seasonsthecomicbook.com.

I’m trying to spread the word over the internet everywhere and anywhere I can to promote the book so I can build a large enough fanbase and launch a crowdfunding campaign early next year. My dream is to print the first story (and the following three) as a full-length graphic novel. I hope you guys check it out! New pages are posted weekly every Monday and Friday, and the entire first issue of SEASONS is already up. Feel free to leave comments, questions, suggestions, critiques, etc. And if any of you have advice on how to get more exposure for SEASONS, please let me know! I’ll gladly take any tips and tricks.

Here is the description:

“SEASONS is an original, creator-owned comic book drama for readers who want be a part of a deep and serious one year journey that will challenge how they look at themselves, others and the world around them. The story of SEASONS revolves around one character, Fletcher Hart Iiams, a misunderstood, average young man who isn’t happy with life anymore and has run away from almost everything and everyone. The entirety of this series will span over one year of Fletcher’s life as SEASONS is planned to be four separate but interconnected stories that follow the seasons of the year. The title has a two-fold meaning: the seasons of the year and the “seasons” people go through throughout their lives. There will be four limited series stories — Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter — and each storyline deals with a combination of different obstacles, enemies, themes and problematic situations the main character will have to face all set in real time. Fletcher is given a new set of powers with every seasonal transition; as the world changes, so does he. It is an allegorical character study piece ultimately about finding a reason to live in this world that will drag you down with it if you let it.”

Here is the official trailer:

Thank you so much!

Cool. Good idea on building up your readers before trying to get crowd-sourced funding. Will check this out!

From the sessions I’ve attended at various conventions and from what I’ve read, be sure to keep that brand name consistent as you use it in a Twitter handle, FB page, etc. And be sure to build up a backlog of pages so you keep your regular posting schedule (twice a week is ambitious – good luck!), since we all know life likes to through challenges our way.

Hope there are several local comic book stores for you to hit up and try to do signings at, to get some local buzz. Much cheaper than paying for a table at a convention, although you’ll eventually have to do that to broaden your audience.

Rooting for you guys!
