Jim Zub is creating Comic Writing

patrons

My name is Jim Zub.

I'm a storyteller probably best known for writing comics and a series of How-To tutorials about making comics.

Over the past 15 years I've worked for almost every major comic publisher in North America, including Marvel, DC, Image, Dark Horse, IDW, Dynamite, and Udon. Working with so many great collaborators has given me a pretty broad set of experiences I've channeled into articles on my website about writingpitching, and promoting comics as well as breaking into the industry and some of the economics of selling creator-owned content in the retail market.

Quite a few people who have read my comic-making articles have asked me how they can show their support for the advice I've put together. Normally I just point them toward places where they can order my books but, with the changing creative landscape and new avenues available, I've realized how useful direct support can be. That's why I've set up this Patreon page. 

Every month I'll be using Patreon to show my supporters the comic writing process: Full comic scriptsproject pitches, story development notes, and even advance reading PDFs of my upcoming creator-owned comics are all 'unlockable' depending on the level of your patronage.

If you enjoy what I do and have offered to buy me a coffee/beer as a thank you for my stories or advice, here's your chance to digitally follow through on that offer. For the price of a coffee per month you can show your support for the work I've done telling stories and helping future comic creators build stories of their own. The money I raise here will go into my creative warchest and help fund future creator-owned projects.

If you're an aspiring comic writer or just someone who wants a peek behind the curtain at the process, I'm happy to show you what I do and give you a preview of work I have coming down the line. (For commercial work-for-hire projects I won't be able to show scripts/development work until those issues are published, but for creator-owned you'll have advanced access to what I'm working on).

Thank you for continuing to support my work in whatever format you choose - in print or digital - and telling others about what I do. Having the opportunity to tell stories and meet so many wonderful readers is a thrill.
