I was clarifying
. I don't actively read comics. I don't personally own a comics collection. I occasionally read online ones. I've seen video showcases of comics. Whatever I know about comics I get from being online.
I have not bought and read any comics in years.
I have been to my local nearby comic shop a few times on Free Comic Book Day and picked up a few comics. I never went that often and I haven't been back since.
I tried finding out about how to approach comic industry pros- creators, writers, artists, publishers, editors, etc., about getting funding for your own comics, and about breaking into comics when going to Comicon and other comic book conventions. I have never been to any and I have yet to do that.
I've tried doing research on grants, awards and other monies for comic book creators, writers and artists and on various types of venues to get the funding I need but I never kept up with it. I recall contacting certain foundations about potential funding but had little success with that.
I am still interested in pursuing getting the proper training, materials, resources, tools, and the funding I need to professionally produce my own comics.
I hope this is clear.
