What is a Trade Paperback and how is that different than a Graphic novel?
A trade paperback (or TPB) is a collected series or miniseries compiled into book form, while a graphic novel is a self-contained story of completely new material. Some people choose to use these terms interchangeably. These people are charlatans and should be avoided at all cost.
How long are your miniseries?
Most miniseries typically run between three to eight issues. The are finite in nature and are sometimes referred to as limited series. Most comics published by Brain Cloud Comics are miniseries that run three to five issues, mimicking the traditional three-act and five-act story structures.
A miniseries more than eight issues is referred to as a maxiseries, and can go up to twenty-four issues or so.
IS BRAIN CLOUD COMICS HIRING?
Not currently, but we're always on the market for fresh talent. If you're an artist, penciler, inker, or colorist, we'll gladly take a look at your work (sorry writers but we're good). While we may not have a project lined up at the moment, we're love to add you to our digital rolodex. Please send an email to us via our Contact Form that includes a link to your online portfolio, Tumblr or Instagram page. IF you're an artist and you don't have any of those, then what the heck are you doing?
Seriously, can I submit my story to Brain Cloud Comics?
No. Have you learned nothing, Jon Snow?
