Thanks for the reply!
>I don't know if it's just your way of phrasing it,
It is just my way of phrasing stuff. I realize that these people
are freelancers and aren't really under contract. Personally, I
would be very hesitant about working "under contract" for any
>And I'm not sure about all these Americans you think are working
Off the top of my head I can think of: Don Rosa, William Van Horn,
David Geirstein, Dave Rawlston (I may have his name wrong), Michael and
Janet Gilbert, and Robert Ingersol. Granted most of these people only
do a little work for Egmont, but that is still a bunch of people.
>But when they start buying again, they are the people to work
Two years ago, (at your recommendation) I tried out for Egmont and never
heard back. My writing has improved tremendously since then. I'd love
to work for Egmont and I might someday in the future. But, I don't plan
to approach Egmont again until I have more experience.
The hardest part of becoming a professional is getting that first
story published. I have to start somewhere and John Clark and
Gladstone seem like a terrific place to start.
>Their page rates for writing are TWICE what the highest American
>page rates are for those super-hero things.
Egmont's pay is very good. I saw the scale two years ago.
Unfortunately, Super-Heroes also pay well. Sure the page rate is
less, but they sweeten the pot with roality payments.
