Cartoonist Chris Schweizer on Pitching Graphic Novel Ideas

Successful graphic novelist Chris Schweizer writes at his Patreon page about pitching an idea and getting rejected. All of the greats have been rejected, and Chris is kind enough to write about his idea and why he thinks it was a no-go from the publisher.

"Approaching every project with an absurd degree of hubris gives you the emotional fortitude to see it through to completion and do your very best, convinced that it'll lead to commercial and critical success. The trick is shrugging it off if/when it doesn't."
