This is our THIRD chat with Derek. Previously on CC2C Episode 299 May 4, 2017 and Episode 272 on May 16, 2016.
About the artist:
Creator of the comic RuinWorld and I’m currently doing freelance design work for Marvel, Warner Bros., Hasbro and Mattel. I recently illustrated 3 children’s books for Disney/Marvel that came out in 2017 and available where ever books are sold. I’m the designer for Marvel’s Super Hero Adventuresline.
About the work:
BOOM! Studios is proud to announce RUINWORLD #1, the debut issue of writer/artist Derek Laufman’s worldwide hit all-ages comics series at BOOM! Studios. Intrepid adventurers Pogo and Rex are on a quest for fame and fortune. Their discovery of a special map leads them on an epic journey through dangers, demons and old enemies. There’s one tiny problem—they’ve already lost the map. Now they’ll have to survive the greatest dangers of a world where threats hide behind every corner…if they can find a way to first survive each other’s best intentions first!

What advice would you give to someone looking to publish/self publish a book using Kickstarter?
You’re attending more conventions now than the last time we spoke. Any pro-tips as someone still relatively new to the scene?
