What I’ve Been Up To…on March 20, 2011 at 14:39
As some of you probably know, submitting to Marvel is an invitation only deal, since they shut down the old “slush pile”. Well, some time ago (last year actually) I got a chance from C.B. Cebulski to submit some samples to them. Needless to say, since I’m still sitting here, I didn’t get picked up. Looking through those Wolverine samples, I can’t say I blame them one bit. I don’t know what went wrong, did I freak out and just lose my skills or what, but they were pretty ugly. Ugly enough that I won’t be showing them here. 😕
The editor I was in contact with gave me some critique and some pointers and asked that I re-submit later in the year. So at the beginning of March I sent them some more:
The editor I was in contact with has moved up the food chain and no longer does submissions, but said I still need to work on my backgrounds etc. and gave me the contact info for the editor who will be taking care of submissions from now on. So as of now my big Marvel break hasn’t happened, but I’m hoping it’s only a matter of time.
Meanwhile I’ve kept submitting Heroes, inc. to various publishers. Unfortunately no bites yet. In desperation I even submitted to 215ink and believe it or not they had the gall to say that the Heroes,inc. art was so poor that they couldn’t put something like that out! 😯
I have no problems taking critique from professionals who know what there talking about and if the 215ink guys simply had some minor issues that they weren’t happy with I could understand, but saying that the art wasn’t good enough for them to put out there! 😀 😀
I guess that’s why they aren’t even in the top 20 of publishers. Sheesh!
If nothing else Heroes,inc. will be here as a webcomic. I’ll naturally be re-submitting to Marvel again soon and who knows, maybe my luck will come through.
