The Truth About Rejection…Erik Larsen

5 Aug

The second response to my query concerning rejection comes from maverick Image Comics co-founder and groundbreaking “Savage Dragon” creator Erik Larsen. He is also the very first person to ever publish one of my fan letters in a comic book, which happened all the way back during his run on the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” when he brought them over to Image for awhile in the mid-to-late 90’s.You never knew what might befall the TMNT each issue under his direction (just like with the Savage Dragon), and it was always fun to follow. Needless to say it was an exciting experience for which I will always be grateful, and now here is another reason to thank Mr. Larsen all these years later.    

Erik Larsen:  

Everybody has to deal with rejection at some point. Every working professional has, at some point, had somebody tell them “no.”

You just suck it up and carry on. Try to get better–try to find the editor who responds to your stuff–network and get on with your life.
