Dean Trippe had this up on his Facebook. Sadly it’s true kiddos, except my parents are super supportive, so they probably thought I’d be Stan Lee rich…thanks 90’s folks like Rob Liefeld for living so high on the hog that this is our sad reality.

The truth is, when you have the itch to make comics, and you’ve got the talent, you’re still going to make them despite the harsh fiscal reality. So don’t let this discourage you, just don’t go in thinking that everyone will get top tier (Sean Murphy) page rates.
