Self-publishing can be a daunting process to the beginner. It can have many rewards, but is fraught with many pitfalls. It is a subject that is far to complex to cover in the space that is allotted for here. However, there are many, many books written on the subject. Here are a few that I have read, and recommend. Most of them are on publishing books in general, and are not on comics specifically, but they contain a lot of useful information. You should be able to order these books through bookstores using the ISBN numbers. The Cerebus guide can be ordered through comic stores.
|Not so much a 'How To' as a philisophical treatise, this book offers valuable information on both self-publishing and breaking into comics. I highly recomend it.|
