What is Earth ready for when these titans come to play among mere mortals? Read more...
What’s cool with self-publishing is you get to imprint your brand and declare yourself the publisher. So I’ll be doing “2525” aka my Agent S project under the imprint of Eastfist Comics. Obviously, right? Here’s my first iteration of the logo. Otherwise I would have continued to use Pen Tonic Comics as the imprint, which is where I first debuted Agent S, but I won’t try to make 2525 too oddball humor, so this imprint is more dramatic and symbolic.
I still want to work a pen and ink motif into the text logo. Maybe remove the S logo out of the O because it’s too busy. The flag logo is definitely staying for my bigger comic projects. Agent S motif to kickstart it.
This proof had images at 1200dpi and 600dpi, well over the optimal 300dpi submission resolution. It is indeterminable. So might as well send in at 300dpi. That way you can send in more than 48 pages.
Use less saturated colors. Pure blacks are going to drench the pages. Lower the levels a bit.
Do not expect detailed heavily painted artworks to print well. Only use sharp contrasty flat colors.
Try to think about your layout in advance and what types of fancy splash images you want to print. That way the ink is evenly distributed across the page. This is a limitation of using Lulu.com, but other than that, the print quality is awesome.
