It’s an inevitable part of getting better at comics. You look back on your earlier work and cringe. (And the better you’ve gotten, the more intense your regret!) Then, perhaps as you’re considering your first printed collection, the thought crosses your mind: “Maybe I should re-do these…”
I can safely say this has happened to nearly all of us who have been working on our comics for a few years. After building a following by publishing them on our websites and social media, we start to think about printing our first book. But before we can hit the button on a Kickstarter campaign, we start collecting all of the comics required for the project. That’s when it happens.
Oof! Those first few comics are terrible.
