Mini-Comics. Yay or Nay?

Postby Jimroller » Wed Apr 11, 2018 7:36 am

Hi everyone. I am going to print with the first two issues my new comic series. I would like to launch the series as a mini-comic. Keep in mind, the comic will be professionally printed. The pro's are you get a less expensive comic with low shipping if you order online. My goal is to be the first to disrupt the industry with this approach. What do you think?

I don't mind mini comics. Much easier to hold. But will the lettering also be scaled down, or will it appear normal? I guess what I'm asking, will the original art be produced like it would if intended for standard size printing, then reduced for the mini size?

Hey MR-SigS. The art will be produced normally and then reduced down but the lettering will appear as the same readable text you would find in a standard sized comic book. BTW, The comic will measure 8.5 inches high and 5.5 inches wide.
