Biting-size and fast-to-the draw, Extra Fabulous Comics come from the mind of Zach Stafford, an unemployed, former graphic designer who started creating comics when his life turned to trash and he had nothing left to live for. But like many before him, Stafford has found the life of living with a full time job and bills to pay on top of his creative freedom. This is why it's so hard to find the motivation to get started in a new comic. But luckily for Stafford and others like him, the Internet is home to a wealth of possibilities.
The most basic way to start buying comics on the Internet is to use PayPal. Simply go to PayPal, click on the button "Create Account," and follow the easy-to-follow instructions. On the next screen, you will be asked to choose a password. Never write down a password or memorize one - the hackers would have them by now. Make sure you choose a secure password as suggested by PayPal.
One way to find a group of people who enjoy your funny, biting, and extra fantastic comics is to join some online message boards and communities. Find the right ones, and start hanging out with people who share your interests. If you get a chance to talk to them, maybe they might even recommend something everyone should try.
Another thing you can do is search for online retailers who offer free online books. Some companies, like Top Cow, have entire sections dedicated to offering free comic series. The Internet is filled with potential buyers looking for great, new things. Look for something everyone can agree on, and you're bound to meet some interesting people.
Lastly, another great way to meet people with similar interests and hobbies is to watch a lot of television. Comic book and superhero shows have captivated our imagination over the years, so finding something everyone enjoys is a good place to start. Watch popular TV shows about cooking, fashion, or anything else you'd like to see as a fun spinoff of your favorite comic.
After you find a few shows you enjoy, start making a list of other shows you've been interested in. Do a little digging and see if you can find some current comic book series circulating around. You might be able to find some in trade publications as well. If you have any interest in collecting comic books or visiting comic book stores, now is a great time to start. If you don't care about buying books, and aren't particularly good at reading comics, you'll probably wind up being a big fan of some of your favorites.
Check out a local comic store as well. Many stores offer a "gift" section that includes various comic books or items. This can be a great way to find items you didn't expect to buy. Comic stores have also become a great place to meet other people who are just as crazy about comics as you are. If you frequent a comic store or a book store, you should always have an open book to leave for other customers who stop by to pick up a specific comic.
As you expand your knowledge of all the great things about comic stores, you may want to start visiting more than just one. If you live in an area that doesn't have many comic stores, visiting a couple will make it easier to find a store you love and can spend time in. Of course, if you live in an area where there are lots of comic stores, your options become narrowed down even more. Visit several stores, both in person and online, to get a variety of different opinions. Make your decision based on what you like, rather than what others recommend.
