ZAP! — BGSU alum inspires students with tales from the comic book industry
BOWLING GREEN — As someone who likes both writing and graphic design, it likely should have been a given that Bowling Green State University senior Cody Mohr would consider combining his two passions to work in the comic book industry. But the digital arts major never considered it an option until he recently took a graphic novel course. But it was a campus visit Monday at Prout Chapel by BGSU alum and freelance comic book writer Marc Sumerak that took Mr. Mohr from a “maybe” to “probably” pursuing that career by sharing his own story about how he initially came to work for Marvel Comics. All it took was a few tips and insights from Mr. Sumerak for Mr. Mohr to become inspired to believe he has a shot at getting into the industry. “I thought it was interesting that he said there’s not really a lineup of a hierarchy to the comic book world — I definitely thought it would be more like you start as an intern, then editor, or stuff like that,” Mr. Mohr said. “But Mark said it’s more about getting your work out there, and so Mark’s talk really inspired me to get out there and just keep pushing.”
