The Royalties received per comic book sale are divided ton 5 departments/groups. (After Production Cost).
Each of these are explained in further detail below. If you handle all of the tasks in a certain department for your comic book, (e.g. You handle all of the "writing" tasks), you will receive the entire royalty. If you handle 1 task in a department, and other people fullfill the other tasks, the royalties are dispersed to each person based upon which task they fullfilled:
-Series creator: 1%
-Lead Writer: 3% (on top of whichever of these 3 roles you fullfill).
-Think Tanks (ideas that make the story): 3%
-Writer's editor: 4%
-Artist's editor: 4%
-editor chief: 4%
Sales: 35% (Whoever shares the link that gernates a sale)
-Lead Artist: 3% (on top of whichever of these 4 roles you fullfill).
-Scene descriptions: 5% (Can aslo be fullfilled by a writer)
-Vector art: 3%
-Scene assembly: 9% (Can aslo be fullfilled by a writer)
Other Mgmt: 5%
-Character & Background art
Your character idividually makes moneys when it sell merchandise (t-shirts, hats, cards, birthday party supplies, etc...)
When the merchandise only has your character on it, we subtract the cost of making the merchandise, then you get 15% of the sale. If your character shares spotlight on merchandise, the 15% is split between the charcaters owners on the merchandise.
4 Real Examples of what that can actually mean:
1. If you create the main characters & the series, then write the story & the script, and then share the link to someone who buys the comic book, you'd receive 55%.
2. If you create the main characters & the series, then write the story & the script, but... Someone else shares the link to someone who buys the comic book, you'd receive 20%.
3. If someone else creates the main characters & the series, and they write the story, but you write the script, and then share the link to someone who buys the comic book, you'd receive 43%.
4. If someone else creates the main characters & the series, they also write the story & the script, but... You share the link to someone who buys the comic book, you'd receive 35%.
(The above are real examples that have already been executed and paid royalties, but the results on your comic book can vary, depending upon the size of the team and how many people handle certain tasks.)
