Are you a writer or an artist?

Ever dream of working for Marvel? Do you find yourself thinking, “I could do that…if I knew how? Well, here’s your chance! Join Talent Scout Rickey Purdin, along with Editor Christina Harrington, Jordie Bellaire (Hawkeye), Michael Garland (Mighty Captain Marvel), Ken Lashley (X-Men Gold), Mike Perkins (Iron Fist), Khary Randolph (Mosaic), and Matthew Rosenberg (Secret Warriors) to find out how to get your foot in the door and begin your career at the House of Ideas!

This past weekend, Shallow Graves Magazine covered C2E2 and attended an impressive Marvel Panel of how to open the door into all aspects of the Marvel World!

The Speakers hit on key points such as:

  • It is all about your portfolio
  • If you have a site and want your work to be seen, keep it simple as editors don’t have to dig for it.
  • Don’t just draw covers, draw and illustrate actual pages so an editor knows you know the concept from beginning to end.

Check out the panel below and take notes…And as always Excelsior!

Also, be sure to check out the Marvel website as they will be accepting applications soon, for the intern program starting this fall!
