I was beaten !
Total sale after a year and a half : Zero !
The distributor has broken the contract!
Historical of ‘’Conventional Wisdom’’ in USA:
2006: I sign a contract with an English editor
2,000 sold in the UK
500 sold here
2,000 given (today, I still have 2,000 left)
2009: the contract ends (not enough selling for him)
2011: I sign with an American distributor
2012: end of the contract
Cultural problem ?
No, my comic does touch the American youth!
I saw it during my trip to Mississippi
The comic was available on a shelf somewhere in the USA,
But who knew it…?!
I had to do my own advertising there….
They said they could do my advertising if I
Had paid 10,000 $ cash!
(well, I’m already suffering for getting a small salary sometimes…so, as strange as it appears to be, I said no!)
I tried many things starting by ‘’we could just…’’
In fact: no marketing, no advertising: no fruits!
All this looks like my small tomatoes on my porch,
I didn’t take care of them and now,
Even though I tried to save some of them, it’s all damned…
The USA is a good ‘’market’’, OK (even for those tomatoes)
It could help me to take off from my survival condition
But there is something else for me,
I feel that I stole something from them in Heaven
Then, I felt on my knees,
I replant those poor sick fruits
With a sincerely love and then I
Prayed for this huge country
(It actually needs prayers, whatever we say about it)
The biggest tree on Earth
Was first a small act of faith,
Just a little seed of madness,
Which hasn’t been despised
The comic ‘’Robi’’ is the last one available in USA…

Good news : this is going to change
Actually, it is quite a good new this end of contract…
Because after my cartoon success in the USA,
I will be free to engage a bigger editor!
But in any case, my ambition is higher than the cartoon or even the USA…
I know some have guessed already…
