When it comes to actually "breaking into" the business, all three panelists agreed it is easier to do as an artist than it is for a writer. Artists have the advantage of a portfolio stuffed with visuals. Editors can quickly look at the quality of the work and make a determination from there. Many editors are usually on the run, so finding the time to sit down and actually read through something is a luxury few – if any – can afford. In fact, some editors don’t bother to read stuff and it is hard to "make" people read your stuff. Even if your stuff is read, it can sometimes take months for someone to get back to you. To that, Brandon Badeaux, an artist on both Batman: Arkham City and the several DC titles, said the best advice he’s ever received was to be "pleasantly persistent." You don’t want to aggressively chase people down, but taking the time to stay on top of people – while keeping their busy schedules in mind – is one of your better options.
