In preparation for this year's New York Comic Con, I've made some mini comic previews of AER HEAD! This is the first time AER HEAD has been in print, so I'm super excited! The mini comic includes a cover, the first 5 pages of AER HEAD, and 2 promo pages at the end for the comic itself and mindy indy as an artist. I printed them at a local printer, and the cost came to about $1 per mini comic, which is a great price. I'll only give these out to a few key people at comic con, whereas I'll give my business cards away like candy because those are super cheap to print in bulk if you know where to look.
Creating this promo page was a snap, due to my years of experience as a graphic designer. Yes, I will make AER HEAD #1 in 2012, ideally before the big San Diego Comic Con in the summer, but aiming for as soon as possible. I have a facebook page, if you haven't seen that already. And I'm going to start using twitter more. I haven't really used it, because it seemed annoying, and I don't want people stalking me, but I need to use it for professional purposes now. The name mindyindy was already taken on twitter, so I had to go with mindy_indy. Hopefully that won't confuse people. Check mindy_indy for frequent updates when I'm at the NYCC! I don't have a booth, because I don't have products to sell, but I'll just be walking around everywhere going to various panels about the business of publishing and such.
The back cover promotes mindy indy (aka Mindy Steffen, that's me) as an artist. Since I do coloring work for Marvel, I feel like I have a leg up this year at the comic con, and hopefully that can lead to more coloring work. I don't want to limit myself to just that, though, so I put pretty much everything I can do related to comics and illustration.
Just had an idea... Would anyone be interested in buying an AER HEAD mini comic? If so, I can print more. You can write a post or send me an email and we can work it out :) Excitement!!
