Stuff about stuff i dig and don't dig.
lessons learned, when doing out the layout make sure half your page count is an even number otherwise when you print it out you have a nice double page spread of emptiness
The only plus would be that the artist can sign nice and big, and draw a sketch on these pages - unless it's the whole run... Thanks for the tip - I know absolutely nothing about layout programs, which is one reason I haven't published anything yet.
the general rule is to keep the page count divisble by 4. since traditionally, printers used to use "signatures" (2 pages each side of a printed page/piece of paper = 4 pages).however, these days printers can let you have half a signature, so you can have a 22 page count. though i've never had anything printed in this fashion, i'd imagine they just glue/stick or have some sort of a larger margin for staples on that half signature?
Learnt that lesson the hard way as well... So how long until Sureshot goes to print Mark?
iant - i like the empty sketch page, and i was going to put one in one of the later ozcomic magazines when i couldn't think of how to fill it. but it felt cheap and dirtyg - luckily it was a test print at work. even luckier is that there are two pages i can remove. i'm hoping you may have something to submit some dayhayden - should be ready for supanova
oops - at least it was just on a test run - I find contributors notes or a link page (eg to the forums or phase two) easy ways to fill up space if I have a page left over.
