On October 30th, he will conduct a seminar on the business of the independent comics in partnership with Comic Arts Workshop.

Hennessy’s participation in these events occurred because of anticipation for his upcoming book The Business of Independent Comic Book Publishing. The book is the result of five years of research and twenty years of experience in the comic book industry, and it comes at a pivotal point for the business as a whole.

Topics covered:

  • Idea Generation
  • Formats
  • Schedule Management
  • Managing Talent
  • Funding Your Comic Project
  • Contracts
  • Promoting Your Comic
  • Distribution

“Comic book properties are some of the most popular and profitable forms of entertainment now, so the need for artists and writers to understand the business of comics couldn’t be greater,” Hennessy said.

He added: “Attorneys can also benefit from an understanding of the business of comic publishing, in addition to their current potential in other media. Comic book law has its foundations in entertainment, publishing, and intellectual property law, but it is a unique industry that requires a unique perspective.”
