* Teachers: you deserve a special award. Since I don’t have special awards, I’m granting you free permission to use my comics in free presentations to your students. Just grab the comics off of my site and use them in your Powerpoint or Keynote presentation, making mention of Unearthed Comics along the way. If you want to buy a book or some merchandise to help me out, please do.
How to Share Digitally
Unearthed Comics are free to share digitally on your blog, eNewsletter, website, or social media as long as you credit Unearthed Comics and link to http://unearthedcomics.com/ and are not making any money off of the comics themselves. (If you are on a social network and want to link to my page on that social network, that totally works. So for Facebook, you would 1st like my page, then make a post with a comic. 2nd, to accompany the comic, you would type in “Credit:” and then use the “@” sign and start typing “Unearthed Comics,” which will auto-populate for my Facebook page. That makes your post show a credit and live link all in one.)
Printing & Licensing Comics
If you would like to print a comic in a book, printed newsletter or magazine, use it in a presentation, or make some money off of reproducing my comics, then you need to purchase a license. Contact me to do so.
