Selling Self-Published Comics Through Stores
What I mean to ask is, has anyone here approached their local or regional stores about selling self-published (i.e. not available through Diamond) comics?
Several comics stores I've visited (Chicago Comics, Laughing Ogre) have a section for these kinds of books.
- How does one broach the subject with the retailer?
- What sort of terms should one expect?
- Would this more likely be commission-based or would I sell them the books up front at a wholesale price?
