Over on the downthetubes Forum we’ve started a discussion about promoting comics with a view to creating a “resource page” for creators looking for ways to publicise their work.
Primarily, at the moment the page with edited info pulled from this discussion (view it here) is a list of links to sites and publications that run reviews but with hindsight it could also include ideas for promotion.
If anyone has any thoughts on this, please get in touch.
