http://twitpic.com/16riz1 – Can’t sleep. Killing time till my brain shuts down. Thought I’d try Marvel.com’s Comic Book Creator program again!
Ron Marz (Writer, Green Lantern, Ion)
Aspiring comic creators, do not attempt to snipe a job out from under a fellow creator by offering to do it on the cheap. If all you have to offer an editor is “I’ll work for half that other guy’s page rate” … you don’t have much to offer. Plus, it makes you look like a bitch to the editor, as well as to the other creator if he/she finds out. Make comics, not enemies.
CB Cebulski (Marvel’s Talent Editor)
Love it when I send the Marvel editors the work of a new artist and @JoeQuesada responds, “Ladies and gents, we have a new star! WOW!”

Geoff Johns (Really? Dude writes EVERYTHING for DC.)
Outlining a fight between Atrocitus and Lobo today. Which will be drawn by Doug Mahnke. It’s violent. Very violent. Dex-Starr vs. Krypto is coming up after Blackest Night…and it’s almost as violent as Lobo vs. Atrocitus.

Oh, my God, “The Box” is a horrible, horrible movie. Good LORD.
Phil Hester (Writer/Artist; Green Arrow, Darkness, Detective Comics)
Ideas, please come again at a reasonable hour. Are you really inspiration, or just its wingman seen through the beer goggles of fatigue?
When told that a comic publisher makes their decisions much as a petulant, spoiled child does, I am not the least bit surprised.
Anyone have the new Wired Magazine? There should be an article on webcomics in it…
