Modern Single Issue Comic Book Industry Standards

PrintNinja recommends following these guidelines to design a modern comic book.

Comic books have changed a lot since the Golden Age, both in the look of the printing as well as the feel of the paper. Modern printing techniques allow for a much wider range of color and saturation, and current comics have taken advantage of this by adding a glossy finish to the pages to allow the colors to pop more. This coating also helps preserve the comic’s quality for a longer period of time. Ultimately the feel of your comic is entirely up to you, but here are some recommendations if you wish to match the comics you see at your local comic shop.
