An interesting interview about having a career as a comic book artist. Featuring my old friend Matt Haley, who illustrated the cover to my first book "People & Poses."
So many of today's popular movies began humbly on the printed page--not in novels, but in comic books. There's a distinct appeal to the illustrated format's ability to tell both large, complex stories without compromising the intimacy of the narrative. And capturing those moments requires a skilled illustrator. What it's like to face the blank page every day?

People at work often ask for reading recommendations, so I detailed a list of graphic novels and TPBs. 

What do you think? Is there anything that you think I missed? 

Do me a favor and post a response on the actual blog. Let me know what you think I missed or if you agree with my list.

Please note, I only included non-superhero titles for newbies. If you'd like to see a superhero list, leave a comment on the blog.
