Become the Next Marvel Superstar


I heard about these events when I was a young comic book fanboy and they helped to fuel many a rainy afternoon of trying to learn the skills involved. Sadly only the Scripting skill stuck and to this day I still find myself writing out comic scripts in my spare time for an audience who will never see them.

I wonder just how many people actually got their start in the industry from this book? Would have to at least be a few. Anyone ever heard of someone who started this way? I would love to hear the story.
