UslanWatch: Was Michael Uslan a proto-Mark Millar? In an interview he talks about how his comics course led to employment in the comics industry.

“I called the UPI and posed as a taxpayer complaining about my money being spent on a course on comics, a commie plot to subvert our children… There was a piece on it in virtually every paper. The classes were full of cameras.”

Michael soon received a call from the vice president of DC Comics that led to a job writing The Shadow and later Batman.
