Comic Art Commissions - New Comic Artists Directory Launches

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 30, 2008 -- Metro-Atlanta resident Terry Maltos represents the comic book artist Al Rio. He also runs the successful web directory "The Comic Art Links Directory" and the auction and images site "The Comic Art Community."

Terry has built a new site for artists who draw custom commissions and buyers who regularly commission artists to draw. It's called Comic Art Commissions.com.

If you are an artist - register and list yourself. This site will definitely get you commission jobs or at the very least - hits to your web site. Once registered, artists can list their commission rates, upload art for sale, upload sample images, link to a web site, easily manage listings and get exposure to a targeted audience of comic art buyers.

This week has seen me as busy as I've ever been. Thanks to my great pal, Jimmy T, I've been furiously updating web-sites all over the place. Jimmy is a God amongst men, and each passing second sees me more in debt to the guy. Ah well, it could be worse.

ALAN KUPPERBERG’S STOLEN DAGWOOD, or, “THANK YOU FOR CALLING ME BACK THIRTY ODD YEARS LATER AND TELLING ME I’VE BEEN VICTIMIZED AGAIN ON THE SAME JOB.”

It began simply enough. I’d spent the weekend updating and revising Alan Kupperberg’s web-site when I received an email asking me about a Dagwood illustration that Alan had done. Not knowing anything about it I forwarded the email onto Alan, knowing that he’d be able to look into his workbook and identify the art, who it was for and when it was drawn, virtually down to the day. Generous to a fault and as honest as they come, Alan replied, giving the history of the piece. Alan’s said, “I believe what you have are parts of a color illustration that I did in November 1976 for a publication called "You Magazine." The article was titled, "Crazy Boss." According to my account book, they stiffed me for $300. I was never paid for it. As I remember it, they printed my color rough rather than the finished piece.” The reply was…
