Write your dream job

So a comics fan named Christopher Bird has gotten himself a gig at DC Comics by putting together a list of reasons why he should write for "The Legion of Super-Heroes."

I never quite understood the comic as a kid - in hindsight, it's a title that never quite got the readership it needed, so it was totally rebooted four or five times. I didn't buy it - I was reading it at the news-stand at the grocery store, maybe every third issue. Not the best of ways to get the main narrative across, I know.

Still, this guy's got a compelling list of reasons. He's clearly got an understanding of the characters, knows how to use conflict to move stories forward, and loves all the silly bits in the comics, while still being ready to readjust anything that didn't quite gel. That last part is going to be crucial, if my childhood confusion is any indication. Good luck to you, Christopher.

Apparently Rich never bothered to check with Chris himself. In this post, he says that Rich is incorrect, he has not been contacted by DC.
