dunno what advice they can give personally, but based on how a lot of the big shot indy cartoonists have gotten their start, I'd imagine its a mixture of drawing and writing something every day and xeroxing the heck out of it when you feel you've got something you wanna put out to the world. At least thats what I'd be doing if I weren't talentless and lazy.

Did they have any interest in ComicCon?

What advice can Mr: Clowes and Seth give to cartoonists, NOT interested in the main-stream superhero genre, for publishing and distributing their work?
