We’re back with another installment of Graphic Novel TK, your podcast guide to comic book publishing, co-hosted by Alison Wilgus and Gina Gagliano.
What do all of these publishing words mean?
This week we’re bringing you part two of our conversation with long-time comics professional George Rohac about the wild world of publishing terminology. In this half, we cover everything from ARCs to ISBNs to paper stock to options to what exactly an indicia is. Our lingo rundown builds on itself, so maybe give part one a listen before you move on to this installment.
