    Yea I wouldn't say don't bother. But to just look at the reality of things, although with enough effort and determination, hell you could actually make it.

    I'm not sure about any publishing companies but just start small with barely known companies and after awhile you be able to move up to middle level companies like Dark Horse.

    Okay.

    Yeah you guys will make it. Don't listen to what anyone else says, save up your money and go to Japan and send your drawings into those publishers and they'll jump at the opportunity to hire you.
    Is that what you want to hear?

    You might also wanna consider working with a team rather than totally individual. That way you don't draw yourself to an early grave.

    The true is this: Comic industry (as any industry) is a hell. And this is not different here, there or anywhere, publishers want things that sells, want people that represent them and want to hold your life and soul, this industry has become in do money or go away.

    As a matter of study, japan is not the best place. Yes, its great, it was the place where cinematic continuity started (with Osamu Tezuka), but USA and Europe have a longest history in comic development. Hell, even in Latin America there has a longest development in the technique and methodology of comics (of course all the developments die with the dictatorships). So if you have the chance to study in USA or Europe, do it, they have a sense and understanding of the graphic novels that few haves.

    And in the future, Japan will not become the strongest in quality of work, just look to Korea, they have amazing works and they can mix their style beautifully.

    Also mangakas are the same as comic artists, comic and mangas are the same, just different names gave in different places.

    Yeah it's the same as book writers as well, If you don't sell even if you have an awesome story you'll still die.

    In manga/comc, sometimes people buy it because of the awesome art, That's why manga with nothing but panty shots stills sells.

    It's a dice dude, Life is all about dices.

    Specially in manga/comic industry, If it happens to sell you'll be a billionaire so freaking bad, standing next to Oprah and the Queen.

    If it doesn't you probably just wasted you time trying, Don't worry I'm one of those guys throwing a dice with you so just make something.
