MoCCA Fest 2010 is a week away as of this writing and I’m happy to announce I’ll be debuting a new book: Tag Team #1. It’s a collaborative anthology featuring the work of Pat Barrett, Robyn Chapman, Colleen Frakes, Morgan Pielli, Sam Carbaugh, and me, Dennis Pacheco.
We break the comics-making process into six steps. Six cartoonists gather in a circle, and we start the clock. At the end of each step, you pass the comic you’re working on to the next person in the circle. At each step, you’re encouraged to develop the story, improve it, and put your own stamp on it—a process that in animation is called “plussing.” By the time you see the finished story, you might not even recognize it. Each person does every step once. And every person works on every story.
