Marvel posted a list of tips for breaking into comics pulled from C.B. Cebuski’s twitter feed. I’m quoting from the article:

Want to make comics? Get tips from Marvel talent manager C.B. Cebulski to help YOU at San Diego Comic-Con and beyond.

Pulled from CB Cebulski’ Twitter feed (@CBCebulski) and organized by topic, these tips, tweets and missives may help YOU get into the comic book biz at the San Diego Comic-Con 2010 or beyond!

My favorite is “Never underestimate the power of the mini-comic. Make them. Distribute them. Buy them. Enjoy them.” But by all means, read the whole thing.

    He forgot the most important one.

    “Be a writer for a popular, highly rated television show. If you are, Marvel will do anything you want us to if you stoop to writing a comic for us.”

  • Tony says:

    That’s too many characters, I guess.

  • Craig says:

    Bonus points if you can squeeze some rape in there.

  • Tom says:

    Be able to stretch five pages out into a 22 page story. Ass shots. Lots of ass shots.

  • Tom says:

    All joking aside, he does have some legitimate tips for artists. He’s hired a ridiculous amount of new talent for Marvel.

    The writer’s path is fuzzy. You basically have to be published already to work at Marvel-isney. They trash all things that look like pitches using Marvel characters. Maaaaaybe, they’ll glance at it if it’s non-Marvel characters.
