Marvel

Since leaving Diamond I have had this rekindling of love for comic books, more notably Marvel books. A long time ago I started a fan-fiction story based on Blade. Obviously, right? Well, I recently dusted off the file, and I have begun a query letter for submission.

I read this article in a recent issue of Wizard mag, and it just got me all warm and fuzzy and excited to do it. The worst thing that is going to happen is that I get a rejection letter from the big M. Quite a few years ago I was lambasted by Mr. Valentino of Image for my desire to write about vampires in comic books. According to him the genre was over-saturated. Well, not in the Marvel Universe, I hope.

On top of this, I am beginning to send agent queries en mass this week. Fun stuff.
