Anyone who has talked to me for more than five minutes knows that I talk about myself incessantly and give myself the mad props I so richly deserve. Then I lament my unemployed (aka freelance) predicament and why there’s never enough work coming my way. How can the best writer of 2013 be stuck in the struggle when he’s also the most amazing editor working today.
If you need proof of the latter, please check out the following reviews of the Days Missing HC:“I generally don’t extend congratulations to editors, but Rob Levin deserves a patented Optimous Douche Reach Around™ for the cohesion he brought to this title.” – AICN
“The editorial team on this series was clearly tightly knit and ensured that all involved stuck to their notes and had open lines of communication, resulting in a collaborative effort with a focused vision.” – CraveOnline.com
Days Missing was by no means an easy project. There are a bevvy of reasons for that, but imagine if you will the launch of a new property. Now imagine that the world is only partially defined so as to leave it open to interpretation by the writer. Now add in four creative teams across five issues and two different companies, and you’ll get a wee idea about what it took to make DM what it became.
I’m not claiming to be the G.O.A.T., not by a long shot. But if you give me lemons, I’ll make Captain Morgan. And if you give me silk, I’ll spin it into gold. That’s what I do.
