Everyone in comic books has to start somewhere. Ram V has been talking about how he broke into comic books.
At the end of 2016 armed with copies of Black Mumba, I pitched a book to Eric Stephenson at Thoughtbubble – which was the second comic convention I ever attended. That book was PARADISO which come out through @ImageComics in 2017 pic.twitter.com/KxkJhbFrt2

Inspired, Joe Glass did the same.
During this time, John Roberts of ComiXology was aware I came out to the States for NYCC and SDCC, and he asked me to be part of panels at both those cons to discuss Submit etc.

But here's a new one. Did you see Joker? Wondered if there was a certain job that you might be qualified to do? wondered if it could get you into comic books? Fallout Comics of Portland, Oregon has a suggestion.
$14 an hour for spinning a sign that's… wait… $14 an hour in comics? So that's two X-Men comics and a Batman an hour? Puts it into perspective. After a few complaints wondering about taxes, minimum wage, and teh legality of barter, they update their terms,
Disclaimer: You will be billed as a private contractor, offering a mini service – Which you are being compensated for with gobs and gobs of comics. There. Now that the technical jargon is out of the way… Give us a call if you would like to help out. 503 784 2136. Fallout Comics
Good luck… also, worth pointing out that Portland remains a magnetic hub for comic book creators, publishers and editors, Who knows who you'll meet when sign spinning. Why not strap your portfolio to the sign's back, just in case? And hope no street brats attack you and break your sign.
