Hey all! A huge thanks to everyone that stopped by the booth at ECCC this past weekend! A great time was had by all and it was a blast to be able to chat comics with so many of you fine folks! In fact, if someone was to ask me what my favourite part of the weekend was via survey, that would be it!
Which is, of course, a thinly-veiled segue into the topic of today’s page. DC Comics has sent out a satisfaction survey to it’s freelancers.
While I’m always one to encourage open communication between an employee and their employer (sohmer smells like fish), I feel that this may be a case where DC ends up regretting some of what it gets back. But, that said, the best way to kickstart change is by hearing the hard truths (sohmer still smells like fish) and maybe they will all be better off for it in the end.
Today’s page was delivered and distributed to our freelancers by Rus Wooton:
Rus Wooton is a comic creator best known for his lettering work on THE GUTTERS and books like THE WALKING DEAD, INVINCIBLE, BUTCHER BAKER and countless others from Marvel, Image, Dark Horse and Radical. An artist for as long as he can remember, Rus got degrees in Fine Arts and Art Education from the University of South Florida in 1996 and then went into freelancing, then working as Wizard’s web designer for three years, then to freelancing again. He’s been lettering since 2003 and draws and writes whenever he can. He is fueled by coffee, Dr Pepper, spicy Korean noodles and rock ‘n’ roll.
Have a great week, friends! See you back here Friday!
