10 Questions for Comics Creators

We’re launching a new feature, and we’re seeking volunteers to get us started. For 2009 we want to get as many comics creators as possible to answer a set of 10 questions about their craft and career. Are you a professional comics creator or industry insider? We’d like for you to share your experiences with the ComicsCareer.Com readers.

Here are the details:

10 Questions for Comics Creators

ComicsCareer.Com is a website devoted to the craft of creating comics. We’re starting a new feature on the site: We’re asking professional comics creators to give their answers to a set of 10 questions about their life and career. We’ll be publishing one “interview” each day.

If you create or publish comics of any type, we would love to include your 10 Questions for Comics Creators interview. Just fill in your answers below and send them to: 10questions@comicscareer.com. (We’ll keep your email address strictly confidential.)

Use as many or as few words as you want. Except for minor corrections for spelling, punctuation, etc., we won’t edit without your permission.

Important: We want to get hundreds of creators and industry professionals to participate in the 10 Questions interview project, so we need your help. Please forward this survey on to your colleagues and encourage them to do the same.

Thanks very much for participating!
