New Copy Editor for Crozonia

I am happy to announce that Mike Exner III has come on board to help copy edit Crozonia. Mike has written for various independent comics including Digital Webbing Presents, and Warmageddon. He is the copy editor for all of Robert Kirkman's indy books including Invincible and The Walking Dead. Welcome Mike!
Gary Cohen who has been a tremendous help since Issue #2, is still on board to wrap up Issue #4.

Crozonia - Now What?

Just tallied up my sales since the beginning in 2006. I have sold around 2500 issues so far, including 1500 Issue #1. Not bad with no distribution, just selling at conventions. I just sent my submission package to Diamond. Crossing fingers, hoping Crozonia will be accepted. I really think I can make another 2000 - 3000 new readers through distribution if I put enough marketing muscle into it.
I also want to reach new convention markets. The fans at Wizard World Chicago are good to me, so I'll return when Issue #4 is published. And Toronto is my hometown, so I'm at Fan Expo every year. I really want to go to Wonder Con (San Francisco), MegaCon (Orlando), Wizard World Philly, Wizard World LA, and Emerald City Comic Con (Seattle). I hope to hit at least two of those cities next year.

Watch out!
