A cover is not simply a drawing, it’s a conversation with your potential reader. It’s one-part advertising, one-part introduction, and a whole mess of parts involving content, composition, style, and the needs of the readers and retailers.
Arguably, the cover is the single most important element of a comic book business, and is often the most overlooked. This new course is a greatly expanded version of the 90 minute cover lecture Ty has given in his Bootcamp Level 1, class, including elements and lessons never taught at the Bootcamp before!!
