Becoming A Partner

The power of advertising in the Comic Art Trends Price Guide and its Grading Companion is not in sheer volume. In fact, sales will reflect the relatively small universe of original comic art collectors as compared to the number of people that buy jeans and cars or even comic books.

The goal of the Comic Art Trends Price Guide is to expand the universe of original comic art collectors-- which is why I am asking for PARTNERS rather than advertisers.

That may sound like a horrible way to sell advertising, but I think it is important to consider the long-term objectives with a sense of realism. ALSO, the ace-in-the-hole this guide has is that it will marketed to investors in comic art. We want to find the people that actually want to buy original art and look at it as a viable form of investment. Further, we want to introduce people to original comic art that may have never considered it in the past-- especially those that enjoy comic books and superhero movies but never considered buying original art.

Update: Check out my crowd-funding promotion through IndieGoGo. All advertising for the 2019 Full Edition will go through IndieGoGo during the campaign. I'll have special offers for people willing to support the Comic Art Trends Price Guide.

NOTE to potential advertising partners: Advertisements should refrain from using profanity, sexual innuendos, or other crude language. The author reserves the right to make that determination. Advertisements must be truthful at the time of submission (a page of art sold prior to printing is NOT a violation of this integrity policy). Also, please refrain from including advertising with imagery featuring nudity or sexual innuendo. The goal is to produce a professional reference book that is suitable for young people to browse as well. Think of what is acceptable to show to your grandmother or corporate CEO (whichever has higher standards.)
