Let’s talk Comics!

Week in and week out Brad and Dave give excellent advice for creatives (in the form of webcomics, but it can be applied to any creative endeavor), all mixed with great banter and sense of humor.

So my friends, let’s talk comics!

$5 of Joy

A couple of months ago finances were being reassessed due to Covid. Comic Lab didn’t make the cut. Last week after listening to the latest episode, I realized the amount of joy and information Brad and David provide. So, I’m back on Patreon to get the Pro Tips and access to the discord server. There are two places on Patreon that get some time from me each week. One for my daughter and Comic Lab for me. Thank you for what you provide each week.

Great Show for Creatives and Shop Talk

If you’re someone who wants to laugh while learning about building developing creative online business, try Comic Lab.

Brad and Dave are specifically web comics professionals, but as a software and video game professional, what they discuss applies to so much more.

Just one episode, and you’ll be champing at the bit for more.
