Moving Away from Comic Publishers

Since the press release went out announcing ELKíS RUNís move to Villard (a division of Random House) I can finally talk with a bit of weight about what I see as being the best way for the little guys to make good in comic publishing.

Itís been happening quite a bit lately, Hope Larsenís two book deal with Simon & Schuster, FLIGHT and Pekarís books coming out through Ballantine (a division of Random House), and other moves to tradiational publishers.

The big book publishers Ė theyíre looking for innovative comics. Whereas the Marvels and DCs of this world are looking for superhero stories, more and more book publishers are taking chances on the small-time guys with stories that have a more mass market appeal.

Itís such an ideal situation for us small pressers. Weíre talking about a market where 99% of the people donít know you from Bendis. So Iím just wondering if other small press publishers have been trying this avenue and, if so, howís the experience been so far? Do you think tradiational book publishers are a good place to go for our creator owned work?
