Traveling the world talking to millions of people about my book Sumo the same question all ways comes up.  “Mr. Pham, ” they’ll say “how do I get my comic made?” “Do I need an agent?” ” Why are you so awesome?”  Well, I can’t answer the last question, but I made up this simple flow chart to help cartoonists make decisions about choosing a the best course of action for their comics.  For a long time I only shared it with a privileged few, but now I feel that I need to share this chart with the world!  So no, you do not need an agent, let Thien Pham be your agent.

ps. You can also use this chart for all life decisions, just replace publisher with girlfriend, or job, or grad school and let Thien Pham be your Life Coach.
