So Jim Shooter is like the final boss in a video game?

January 28, 2012

I think we can all agree that completing the Marvel Try-Out book, sending it in the Marvel offices, and — dream of dreams — landing a job at the House of Ideas would be a comic lovers Horatio Alger story. But meeting with the eight-foot tall Jim Shooter — a man who’s burned a bridge or two in his day — would be a bit intimidating. No matter how many gumball machines and stuffed animals were strategically placed on his desk.

    And the winner of the Marvel Try-Out Book? Mark Bagley.

      You know what? I knew that and completely forgot to mention it. Thanks for filling in that blank.

      I wonder if Bagley met with Shooter and crapped his pants on sight. And if he was offered a gumball.

        Having met Shooter myself, I suspect Bagley probably spent a good portion of the time trying to comprehend exactly how tall he truly is.
