So the new Plumerai album is up. We went with the free to stream, $5 to download, & $12 to buy a physical business model. In a month’s time I guess I’ll figure out whether I should go with new releases starting out as $1 for the first month (that’s what I did for the Small Life Form & Brian John Mitchell releases last month) or not. It’s all just a numbers thing as I feel $5 is really the fair price to have on a digital album, but if the $1 price generates more than five times the downloads, then that’s the way I’ll roll.
I sent out a comic script I’m unsure about to Melissa Spence Gardner for review. It’s meant to be a parody of sad bastard comics & how self-absorbed some folks are. But I think it might come across as actually being the sad bastard thing. It’s title is “The Saddest Bastard in the World.”
Dave Sim answered some questions I posted for him over on Bleeding Cool. His answer about having people work for him I got a real kick out of, basically it boiled down to it seems like too much work to find work for your assistant to do. Which is sometimes what I find for my interns. Though actually there’s plenty of work here at Silber & the stuff I handout is stuff that literally would not get done otherwise.
I’ve been trying to book a bunch of stuff for my Pittsburgh residency. We’ll see how much of it comes to fruition. Kid Comics workshop, a couple readings, convention appearances, & some music stuff with friends. Should be good fun & action packed.
I’ve been trying to get a bunch of stuff done the past couple of days & been unable to focus. As some of you know it was just the anniversary of my grandmother dying & while I’m trying to throw myself into work to not notice that, I’m just ending up with some sub-standard quality work.
