Going on the Account: More Tales to Tell

I was introduced to a writer with an admirable career:  Belgian comics writer Jean Van Hamme. 


Where the story in the Wall Street Journalon Van Hamme struck me was the point on how the writers in that industry are in high demand.  In Belgium, not having a writer is considered a crisis; here, some folks seem to think it’s a speedbump…


You know, once upon a time, comic books used to give a few pages to text-only stories, mainly to justify classification as a magazine as far as setting postal rates go; but still, you ended up with tales with minimal illustrations (one or two per page) where the writer had to work.  And some titles placed such stories in their books as late as the 1970s.


I bring that and Van Hamme up because I would like to make it known that, in the name of the writer, I’m willing to do fill-ins if an online graphic story needs guest material and is willing to try something a little different.  Why not take a chance with a words guy?  C’mon, what’s to lose…
