Interning at Marvel

DAN MASSO

I’ve always wanted to draw comic books. When the time came I knew I only wanted an internship at Marvel Entertainment. I applied for their production internship program in hopes of getting accepted for the summer semester. As the summer came closer I started to lose hope, until the first week of May when I got a call from Marvel. They wanted me to interview. Unfortunately, unknown to me, I was interviewing for a position that I didn’t apply for, and one that I was not prepared for—the toy department. I left discouraged and sure that the interview didn’t go well. It turned out that I didn’t get it. I was upset, but I didn’t give up. I reapplied immediately. By the end of the summer I got called back for another interview, this time for the position I had applied for. I ended up getting the internship and have been happily handling, scanning and touching up the artwork of the artists who have inspired me. Recently, I have been given more significant work with my first official credit in a major comic book, She-Hulk #23 coming out November 21st. I think it’s a good start towards my dream.
