HIRING interior artists. PAYING gigs.
1) Spy thing
2) Magic-y battles thing (femme-identifying artist preferred)
3) Space thing
4) Jungle thing
ALL are super-fun projects.
ALL start pretty soon.
ALL have strict deadlines.
Reply with samples! I look at EVERY portfolio.

Pinups/covers are great. I love covers/pinups. But I'm hiring sequential artists for interior work. Best way to get hired for interior work is to pack your portfolio with solid sequential art. Action scenes AND quieter moments.

I'm more curious about how writers break into the business.

Here you go Red.

Marvel/DC do not accept unsolicited story pitches.

Want to break in?
A) Make your own original comics.
B) Keep doing it until they're pro quality.
C) Show them your work and get on their radar.

Here's another good one Red. I've met Ibrahim in the past.   When he was apart of the Godzilla books.   Think it was during or not long after Godzilla in hell.
