On this week's episode of the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER!:
Jerry and Cullen are joined in the studio with comic writer-editor-creator Paul Kupperberg and friend of the show Kirk Chritton of ComicsCareer.com.
If you grew up reading comics like we have, then you certainly have read a Paul Kupperberg story or two along the way. Closely associated with DC Comics, Paul has also written for Charlton, Marvel, and Archie Comics (And yes, Paul did kill Archie Andrews, so you know he means business!)
Kirk has been involved in the comics community for many years, working for Jim Steranko and creating his own comic fanzines in the 1980s and 1990s. Kirk is diving back into the comic industry with the launch of his website, ComicsCareer, and has a Kickstarter coming up soon with some books from both Paul and Kirk being offered.
For the show today, Paul and Kirk take a look at what it takes to build a career in comics. It's not just who you know, but how you work and what you can bring to the table. While you are listening, hop over to ComicsCareer.com to sign up for a free digital download featuring interviews with some top comic creators.
As always, we have our Pick 3 selections for new books out today. Make sure to visit your local comic book store - such as Clint's Comics - but please do wear a mask and gloves. Capes are optional but encouraged.
