This episode: (Our) Year In Review

2017, what a year! What a horrible, beautiful year. Mike & Zack take a look back at the year in review on a personal and professional level (ie we don’t spend a ton of time griping about Trump). We look back at our goals and expectations for the year, assess how we met or didn’t meet those goals, do a final page count for the year, talk about our strategies and how we might change the way we work in the future. What does 2018 hold for your humble hosts? Plus: who’s inspired us in 2017? Zack drops a minor scoop in the middle of the episode, we discuss what the biggest comics news of 2017 was, and predict what’s to come. Our last episode of 2017 before we come back from the holidays, and it’s a good one.

 

PS: DON’T FORGET! We’ve finally launched our super cool Process Party Patreon! If you enjoy the pod and want to help support us in what we do, now is your chance to kick in. There’s a few reward tiers available, including the low low $1/month, but if you subscribe at the $3/month level, you will get access to an exclusive Patreon-only weekly podcast feed! That’s a whole extra podcast for less than 1$/episode of the main feed!

If the main Process Party podcast is like being in the mix chatting with cartoonists at a convention party, Process Party: Real Talk is the afterparty, when the walls come down and the real talk, advice and gossip flow freely!  Every week we ask our guests to impart a little *extra* bit of wisdom, some nuts & bolts how-to info or philosophy, and of course a heavy dose of every cartoonist’s number one concern: GETTING PAID IN COMICS! These minisodes contain exclusive content not included in the regular podcast!

Our guests come from a variety of backgrounds and places in their careers, and they all have advice for you. From how to mentally balance comics and day-jobs, to nuts and bolts advice about turning comics panels into cold hard cash. Hear exclusive tidbits about the industry, insider stuff that’s 🔥 too hot🔥 to include in the public podcast, and more.

If you really love the pod, you can sign up for the $5/month level and get everything in the lower tiers, but we also release an After Party mini-sode every Monday afternoon where Mike & Zack will review the stuff they are reading or watching at the moment! What did they think of that one movie about the people or place? What cool old/new comics are they digging on this month? This is a mainline fix of our patented jibba-jabba.

Episode 25 of Real Talk is with Zack Soto & Francois Vigneault! Get in on the ground floor of the Process Party Patreon and make sure you don’t miss an episode of Real Talk! Real Talk updates every Thursday only for Patreon subscribers.

 

Also: Episode 04 of Process Party After Party is up!
After Party is our weekly jibba jabba podcast for 5$/month subscribers! The focus may shift slightly here and there, but the idea is basically that we’re gonna get together and talk about the books, movies or comics that we’ve both been reading. Some things we have both seen, and some things we’re recommending to each other (and you!).
EPISODE 04:   The Punisher (2017) / The Christmas Cookie Challenge / Physical Media vs The Cloud / Lovecraft Country / Making  Your Family Watch Spider-Man Movies
After Party updates every Monday only for Patreon subscribers.
