Breaking and Entering is a resource for anyone who’s long on dreams but short on clues when it comes to breaking into comics. I was there myself, and you don’t have to make the same mistakes I did. Lucky you!

The first piece of advice I can offer, whether you’re a writer, an artist, or both, is to learn how to use design software. Inside out. I use a Mac, I love it, but PCs are just fine. And — I admit it! — cheaper. I use Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign to slap my comics together.

I’ll be continually adding to this when the mood strikes me.

    Hey do you know where I can get a copy of Oblivion? Or if its in print, looks super cool, love the art and graphic novels for that matter. Hard to find it anywhere though! Thanks!

    Sad to say I have no idea when, or even if it’s coming out! I really hope it does, because I was happy with the final result. If I hear anything, I will be screaming it out loud on street corners, like a deranged preacher. And right here.

    There has never been a better era to be a comic book maker than this one. I’m 52 and I remember not having Photoshop or Wacom tablets. My desk was always filled with spilled ink and eraser shreds.

    Awesome art, Dennis – that Spider Man on your site is great, nicely articulated hands ✌️!
