It's almost time for Editors Day everyone! This year there will be six editors coming to visit this quarter for portfolio reviews and to give insight into the comics industry. Make sure you fill out the Editors Day Application form which is due Monday April 23 at 5PM, printed out completely and placed in the box outside Haymans Hall room 307.
In addition to preparing a portfolio, I highly recommend researching the editors and companies that they will be representing. I wanted to provide some general information about each of the editors but definitely do your own individual research as well.
