Zuda Bongo Compare and Contrast -- Now, here's an excellent lesson for, say, a corporate comic book company looking to hire new creators. It's a lesson in being upfront and honest, it's a direct appeal from Bongo Comics, and it comes to us courtesy of Beaucoup Kevin:

"Bongo Comics is looking for pencillers and inkers to work on our line of books, (Simpsons Comics, Bart Simpson Comics, Futurama Comics, Super Spectacular, etc.). We are not looking to publish any original material, and you must be 18 or over.

As far as what you should submit: drawings that are Simpsons or Futurama related would be great, of course, but they don't have to be if you don't have any handy. Ideally, any non-Simpsons/Futurama art would be of other licensed creations, so we can see your ability to draw to a particular model. But although we'll use these drawings to check out your general skill level, we will more importantly be looking closely at your Sequential Art/storytelling skills, so we don't want to receive just pinup or spot illustrations."

Note, please, that there's no need to go into contract details or make vague promises of the fabulous results of accepting Bongo's offer. Just a corporate comics company looking to hire some new creators, who will know going in pretty much exactly what is expected.

Any corporation looking for new work-for-hire talent might want to try this approach and see what happens. What won't happen? Internet Shitstorm 2007.
