*More About This Episode* Interview: Marvel Comics Writer Jim Krueger

Winner of the Eisner Award, Jim Krueger’s tips for breaking into the comic book industry include:

--Having a friend (for him it was Alex Ross) that gets you in.

--Working in the industry in a different capacity (i.e. his pathway to Creative Director at Marvel Comics).

--Writing comics that are being noticed somewhere else – and then a Marvel or DC will come after you.

--But it all starts with doing something you love.


“No matter what, I write something, I read something, I watch something every single day.” – Jim Kruger
