Week 194: Are You Defining Your Role In Comics?


Welcome to another Tuesday! We’ve had lots of rain here in southern Arizona—more than usual. Lots of flooding in my area. Not me, though. I’m fine, thanks. But places around me? Difficult to access or egress, because of the flooding. People were even sent home early because of it. So, yeah, lots of rain lately.

This week’s question, though, isn’t about the rain. (You don’t say!) [I do!] This week’s question is: are you defining your own role in comics?

Time for a history lesson. A personal history lesson.

When I first started in comics, all I wanted to do was write. Writing was what I did. I wanted to be a professional storyteller, work for Marvel, and create scores of characters that were going to be beloved by all. That was my goal. Then my goal changed a bit, because Marvel’s doors were closed—I created my own characters, and then wanted them to rival the best of what Marvel had.

Image comics was huge! Seven artists who decided to create their own company after working for The Man, and they were now going to take their own creations and tell their own stories.
