Marvel Comics Literally Hired A Gross Of New Freelancers In 2009

He’s been making his list and checking it twice. But CB Cebulski, Marvel’s Talent Manager, has counted up 144 new freelancers working at Marvel in the last year. He breaks it down like this;

Writers – 24
Pencilers and/or penciler/inkers – 81 (Provide non-color line art)
Digital painters – 13 (Provide complete artwork from sketch to color, covers and/or interiors)
Inkers – 8
Colorists – 15 (Provide color only over line art)
Letterers – 3

CB points out that the majority of the new hires were American, with Italy, Spain and South America marching in behind.

And people think it helps to get into comics if you’re British…
