  1. Hello!

    From what I gather your website is dedicated to a specific comic book series, correct? As someone unfamiliar with this comic book series, I found it difficult to understand exactly what your site is trying to accomplish.

    I don’t think you’re trying to sell the book (because it’s free, right?). I guess I’m having a difficult time digesting the content.

    I went to your home page to try to understand what this is all about, and I left with more questions than I entered with :-)

    I think my biggest suggestion would be to try to imagine yourself as someone unfamiliar with megabook, etc. and take a look at your website to ensure that the content will draw the reader in.

    In the end, your website design works in your niche, more power to you. However, you might be able to draw more people into your niche if you make the content more accessible to people who enjoy comics, but haven’t yet been exposed to works like megabook.

    I hope that helps!

    • Hello Robert!

      Thanks for stopping by to check us out! Yes, I often forget that not everybody that visits knows about what/who we are. Basically we provide publishing opportunities for comic book creators where there is not much in the industry. We give our books away to generate interest in the stories we have to tell.
      Here is a Hubpage I wrote about MEGABOOK that may help a bit.

      I’m planning on incorporating more of my old hubpage content into the website where people can learn more tips on how to publish and create comics in general. It’s the next stage in the metamorphosiss.
      Here’s a complete profile for some of the Comic articles I’ve written:

      Your comments and suggestions are fabulous and I greatly appreciate them. Thanks so much for taking the time to provide valued input.

  2. Hi Ce Publishing Group,

    I enjoyed reading the interviews they all were great.After reading your interviews I feel like I was right there the whole time. Keep up the good work and keep updating us and all the new stuff before it hits the shelves at the stores.

    Yours Truly,


    • Thanks Carlton! Appreciate the read for sure! Don’t forget you can get tons of free comic reading at our DriveThru, MyDigitalComics, Emanga and SmashWords links! You Rock!

  3. i really like the artwork. lol i wish i could do something like that. A friend of mine actually was into comics and drawings and whatnot. he was teaching me how to but i guess I’m more into just admiring. Kudos to you my friend. Your drawings are pretty dope.

    • Thanks Toni! The artwork here is a result of allot of people’s work. Thanks for stopping by to admire. I’m working on the website to make it better. Comic maker I am, website builder still a toddler… Don’t forget to read all of our totally free comics! They are awesome!

  4. This is pretty cool, but too much vivid imagery. It draws the attention away from the content and to the photos, almost making a chapter book seem like a picture book. I don’t even know what “MegaBook!” is, which makes it really difficult being I must read and re read then I am still missing stuff and a bit confused.

    The way to make money as an affiliate requires you to sell something, and if I people can’t focus enough just to become informed, how can they come to the conclusion of making a purchase.?

    • Thanks for the insight MM! I’m working on it, the website that is… I have a long ways to go and really do appreciate the advice. We’re not really selling anything here, just sharing really fabulous comic book stories for free.

      I’ll make a point from here on out to give more background for new website visitors. But the distracting pictures are kindof the point to comics. But I see your point that there is a balance… M

  5. Not sure if I understand what megabook is about. is it a comic? a book or a game or some cartoon?
    I know you are passionate about it but I didn’t understand what it means.. I really hope people who are used to megabook will pick up your valuable points. This may not be my interest but I wish you the best.

  6. Hey!

    What a great collaborative marketing idea! I am pleased to learn that you’re featuring the works of so many talented comic book artists and helping them get out into the public eye. A grand concept!

    As a fan of the early Marvel array of characters, I am in awe of this kind of work. Best of luck to you all!

    • Thanks Netta!
      We really do appreciate our fans, and your assessment of our mission is great! I myself was a Marvel/DC/Charlton only kid. So re-discovering the non-mainstream indies of the 80’s-90’s has been a passion of mine since I started CEPG in 2005.
      Speaking of Grand Concept… We’re going to have a truckload of reprint Harrier books loading the shelves in the coming year, along with revivals for new stories for both Harrier and Lightning comics!
      The turtle moves slowly but finishes the race….

      Thanks for your words of encouragement!
