The podcast about making comics — and making a living from comics! It's half shop-talk, half how-to, and half friendship. WE SQUEEZED IN THREE HALVES. It's tips and tricks and all the joys of cartooning as a pro. So pull up your drawing chair, put on some headphones, and join us while you draw!

Declaring organizational bankrupcy
Dave brings in a new concept for the holidays — declaring organizational bankruptcy.
Does your comic have an expiration date?
Referring to current events may give your comic an edge today, but it can also make your work harder for future generations to enjoy. Also, now that YouTube offers monetization, will people switch from Patreon?
"Critique my work for only a dollar!"
A ComicLab listener would like his friends to give him feedback on his comic — and he wants them to subscribe to his Patreon to do it.
Is it wise to exploit parasocial relationships to get more Patreon backers?
The New Patreon: The Good, The Bad, and That Logo
Patreon has unveiled a massive update to its service, and we'll discuss it all: The good, the bad, and that ugly, ugly logo.
A sexy, sexy defense of the Ninth Art
Sure, making comics is fun, but do we ever do serious work, like painting, sculpting, or other classical art forms?
Great show, and a good source of comic news
I always like discovering new cartoonists, and this show delivers on interviews. One thing I will ask though is a question for Dave: is the podcast you recorded with the Comics Curmudgeon available to listen to anywhere? I originally found out about Sheldon through him and have bought several books so I’m interested in hearing that interview and maybe you could have him on again because he still runs the blog.
Infectious (in good way)
Very fun and inspiring show! I am 50, but wondering if Dave and Brad would consider adopting me.
Feet first! Eggs in basket! Draw!
As a cartoonist myself I have learned to seek the love others have for cartooning and comics that goes beyond the norm. The people that have dived in feet first to the dark chasm not knowing what’s lies at the bottom. The people that put all of their eggs in one basket and then jammed in some more despite the cracks. Those are my people. Brad and Dave are those people.
Thanks for a fun and insightful podcast Brad and Dave!
