I'm reading. It seems a little out of my field, but who knows?
Thanks!

Federico,

 

I know that we are all engrossed in the sad tragedy of the starving Italian writers who have no chance of making it here in the States.  But, in a recent blog, First Second Publishing (an imprint of MacMillian) said that they accept submissions from foreign creators.  First Second was nothing in 2006.  In 2007, they had one book on the BookScan chart.  In 2013, they had eleven books on the Bookscan chart.  They are small, well-run and their "behind the scenes" blog (part of their regular blog) is filled with interesting tidbits of how they work and how they think.  And First Second is not the only publisher who will take foreign submissions.

 

Here are some of my favorite blogs.

Gina Gagliano, First Second publicist - interview

Calista Brill, First Second Senior Editor - interview

comicsaregreat.com/cag75

 

Although it is last, I would start with the Calista Brill interview by "Comics Are Great" frontman Jerzy Drozd because after ten minutes Calista has made it very clear about what she wants.   In the Gina Gagliano interview, we have to listen to a long list of books that First Second is offering before she talks about what First Second is looking for in the way of stories.

 

One thing to keep in mind is that First Second (and everyone else, really) has their favorites that they like to work with.  For the rest of us, plan on having a very complete package to present because we are all at the back of the line.

 

My favorite book from First Second is Anya's Ghost.

Ciao! Hai una galleria bellissima (Io sono dalla Spagna ma parlo un po' l'italiano :) )

Mi piacciono molto i tuoi dipinti ^_^ !!

Grazie! In realtà non li ho fatti io, ma i disegnatori con cui lavoro. Sono i miei personaggi e le mie storie, ma sotto ogni disegno trovi scritto il nome del disegnatore. Alcuni di loro sono qui su Deviant Art.
Posso anche scrivere in inglese, se ti è più comodo!

Ah, scusa! Non mi sono reso conto che erano degli altri disegnatori ^^; . E non ti preocupare per la lingua, mi piace potere parlare con qualcuno in italiano.

So che non lo scrivvo neanche lo parlo molto bene, ma è l'unico modo di migliorare ^^;

Nessun problema. Io sono uno sceneggiatore di fumetti, quindi tutte le illustrazioni e pagine di fumetti che metto qui su Deviant sono tratte dalle mie storie o basate sui miei personaggi, ma a disegnarle sono stati i rispettivi disegnatori. Per breve tempo ho anche lavorato per una casa editrice spagnola, la Planeta, ma sempre su pubblicazioni uscite solo qui in Italia.
