About the Book

My name is Kirk Chritton, and I’ve had a decades-long obsession with comic books, comic book creators, and the business of creating comics. During that time, I’ve written comics, published Comics Career Newsletter and the Comics Career website, and interviewed dozens of writers, artists, editors, and publishers about their careers and their advice for other creators. 

This 77-page book, Top Tips for Creating a Career in Comics, features highlights of my past efforts and an advance look at my upcoming projects. You’ll find advice and insight from a wide variety of creators including Dave McKean (Sandman), Derf Backderf (My Friend Dahmer), Dick Giordano (former DC Comics Executive Editor), Tom DeFalco (former Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief), more than 20 others.

I’ve also included significant previews of two Comics Career Libary books. The first is Tales From the Titans, which features the best of our long-form interviews. The second book is I Never Write for the Money… by Eisner Award-nominated writer Paul Kupperberg.
