It’s time once again for our annual page rates survey. This survey is for comic book professionals to fill out in order to gain an anonymous idea of what page rates were in the industry for 2018. The results of this survey are kept 100% anonymous and will be used to maintain our web site as a resource for all.
If there are any questions that you do not feel comfortable answering, please know do not feel pressured to answer them. Everything will remain confidential and anonymous but if you do not want to share, you do not have to.
In addition to the page rates, we asked a few additional questions to gauge the industry a bit better including how long participants have been working in comics and what their primary sources of income within the industry are.
Please note that the more people share and complete the survey, the more accurate our data collection will be. The data is not absolute and is averaged out to give general ballparks of what the rates are. We hope that this data will encourage professionals not to accept work that pays below a living wage, and to better understand what the current standards are.
