I have a good friend who is very much into writing comics. He is an art student for that very reason. He has a unique approach as a starting comic artist and illustrator that I think will set him aside when he truly begins his career. When he completes a comic, he screen prints the pages onto very nice paper himself. He saves money on distribution and printing costs by simply doing that work himself. And the results are nothing to scoff at either. When it comes time for him to show his work in pursuit of a job, he will have a near-professional quality print of whatever comics he shows.
Learning to screen print is a relatively simple process, and allows for the artist to have the very highest quality copies of their work without having to spend a huge amount of money on printing. I would recommend learning this skill for anyone who is considering going into the field of comics.
