How to Build Your Own Asylum Doing What You Love

Frank Forte at San Diego Comicon
Frank Forte is the publisher at Asylum Press, and as such has released over 25 titles, some of which he has written and drawn himself or in collaboration. He's a frequent guest editor of Heavy Metal Magazine, which is a dream job for any comics geek who came of age in the 80s.

He has also worked in animation for the Emmy Award winning Bob's Burgers, the Oscar Nominated Despicable Me 2, a host of Lego films, including Lego Star Wars, as well as the comic and pop culture projects Marvel Heroes 4D, and Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi. He co-created The Cletus and Floyd Show with Gene McGuckin, and Sickcom with Robert S. Rhine, which found infamy at Spike and Mike's Sick and Twisted Festival Of Animation. He's also a gallery exhibiting artist, and voracious blogger.

In other words, Frank Forte is one of the good guys.

Matt Kennedy and his guest Frank Forte reveal how to launch your own company, and talk self-publishing, changing careers, and how to pay the bills while doing something you love on Episode 9 of Pod Sequentialism. It's not all about the benjamins, but it's good to know what to expect in the competitive comic book market. Tune in and find out!
