thinking about anthologies Show more
I think that my default plan for anthology calls over the next few years is “come up with a short prequel story about a Parallax character”. Once there are a half dozen or so, and exclusivity deals are expired, then I collect them in a ~60p book. Maybe add one or two new ones just for the book, I’m sure there will be characters who never quite sync up with an anthology theme.
Anthologies are an important part of the indy comics scene - you get some new fans, and you get a new thing to sell at your con table without having to churn out a new solo book every year. But I’m always reluctant to tackle them because I have enough characters kicking around already without making more, thank you very much. Doing this will let me stay focused on the project I plan to be spending the next few years on.
(I’m not entirely ruling out non-PLX shorts. There’s other stuff kicking around. But...)
