Plainfield, IL Inspired by his recent return to self-publishing his award-winning graphic novel VESPERS® (http://www.vespersgraphicnovel.com), this best-selling author wrote a comprehensive analysis of over 10,000 words in the form of a free whitepaper. The report discusses the current paradigm shift in America’s comic book industry and how we got here. For the first time ever, he researched, accumulated and analyzed the market share from the past twenty years and exposes the “five-headed monster” that’s been wrecking havoc on the industry for decades.
“There have been many questions, but very little answers," says Tony C. Caputo, who with his book, How to Self-Publish Your Own Comic Book unraveled the mystery of the comic book business. “I wanted to know the facts, so I decided to do the research, and some of the data confirmed my suspicions, while other facts were enlightening.”
