Breakeven Analysis Wizard for Comic Book Self Publishers

Lately I have been interested in the nuts and bolts so to say of the comic book publication business. I found a simple but very nice data model for breakeven analysis on digital webbing forums posted by Stephen Smirl.

So in my spare time I decided to create a web based wizard for that model. I hacked up a quick and dirty version using Google Web Toolkit and it can be viewed at http://www.mohaps.com/breakeven/

It’s butt ugly, but functional 🙂

Do use it and let me know your comments, crits and feedback.
