Q: I think your books would look better if
they were computer colored, why don't you that?

burned, we still could get our books out.
Seriously, we see computer coloring as a coloring

water color, and other mixed media, visit the art
gallery to see that no computer can replace
the human touch.

Q: What do you mean you don't publish
comics? They look like comics.
A: According to "experts"
within the comic book industry, Kiss Me Comix does
not meet their "standards" also,
according to the readers of mainstream comics, we
are not comics. We consider that strange though
since our art styles look no different than that
of mainstream comics.
The "standards" that they cling to
are nothing more than guidelines for their
artists, which has been imposed on the market and
the readers themselves. We see ourselves in a
similar realm like Mange and comics that are
published outside the U.S., We have grown tired of
the debate, the constant stifling of our
creativity, and the intolerance from those outside
and inside the industry.
Kiss Me Comix seeks diversity from ourselves
and readers, thus we publish Graphic Adventure
Stories, which is the literal meaning of
comics. However, the term gives rise to a more
personal understanding for a reader as they must
use thoughts, feelings, and internal
interpretation for clarification, not some mantra
forced down from some marketing group.
Thus with Graphic Adventure Story Publishing,
Kiss Me Comix stands by our main reason for
publishing, To give those who are tired of
mainstream publishing an avenue to read stories
that are as diverse as any individual. For those
who think of Graphic Adventures beneath them to
read, an opportunity to dispel myths, and open the
door to some diverse, creative reading
entertainment. Regardless of Age, gender, race,
creed, etc. of the reader.
Q: I want to publish comics, what advice can
you give me?
A: First, develop a thick skin. Criticism
in this industry is often harsh and brutal, even
from those who are friends and colleagues. Take it
all in with a grain of salt. Those who you confide
in consider it "tough love." the rest
everyone has an opinion, consider the source and
move on. Next, be honest with yourself, knowing
what your weak points and not ignoring them will
make you better. There is always room for
improvement at any level.
Secondly, believe in your work. You are
competing for the same readers as other
publishers, if you don't believe in what you
publish, how can you expect anyone to want to pick
up your work and read it? Once, again be honest
with yourself, if your work is not ready for
publishing, don't go in thinking you're going to
become the next Marvel. We are a work in progress,
every issue Kiss Me Comix produces is a step
towards getting better. that simple approach keeps
KMC headed in the right direction, up.
