Josh Blaylock is rather different than other figures in the comic book and industry. On the path to self-publishing by age 16, creating a revolution in the t-shirt world by 21, taking over 2% of the comic industry market share by 25, and shortly thereafter spinning off a thriving creative service business and a presence in Hollywood with over a dozen studio and production deals.
Having written and/or illustrated nearly one hundred comic books generating nearly ten million dollars in retail sales, Josh is now spearheading a new direction in publishing. This new perspective embraces emerging technologies such as crowd funding, small yet scalable e-commerce fulfillment, and global digital distribution tools for Devil's Due (as well as independent creators).
Blaylock recently re-collected his thoughts on his time in the industry in the book How to Self-Publish Comics: Not Just Create Them, now available at comic book stores nationwide and online.
