A number of the goals dealt with quality,
- To get Australian comics into the public’s consciousness to show that Australian comics doesn’t just mean The Phantom (which is ironic). Show Australians that comics are about them.
- To show comic readers that Australian comics doesn’t equal rubbish.
But at the end of the day i wanted good books that people would buy. This could be a book that was targetted at a large mainstream population or a niche book targetted at a small community of people. Personally I prefer the latter, looking at a group of people so gourmet fans and directly marketting a book they may enjoy directly to them.
This is why in the original SureShot Presents post i talk about wanting "marketing plans"; who's the audience, where are you going to sell your copies, etc.
But in terms of quality, again its subjective, I didn't think i'd be a great judge of what was good or bad which was why i was quite please when Daren White (DeeVee) and Douglas Holgate (all things cutesy and wootsy) tossed their hat in and became judges for all proposals. With a group of three personal preference wouldn't be an issue. And only good books would be released.
