    Comic Cover Price?

    Hey guys, I have a quick question.

    How much do artist's earn for a comic book cover? From lowest to highest.
    Usually they just do pencils,how about colors too?

    I know there per page basis but i always wandered what tey earn for covers,since there are a few artist's out there doing just covers.

    Thanks

    That might help. Its kinda off but.. its pretty hard to find out what you should be charging. I just go by a flat rate myself for the comic book Im working for right now. I base it off my living needs and hourly rate and come up with a price by doing that. Right now I am only charging 150$ a cover. Which is pretty much a steal in my personal point of view.

    Yeah no problem... It seems sometimes that it really depends on the artists ability and the employers willingness when it comes to prices
