That's one way to do it: tell the world what you want

Ryan Sohmer, who writes the daily webcomic Least I Could Do, put out a little manifesto on his blog on 1/23/09...saying that he wants to write for Marvel's Deadpool comic. 

My first reaction was that it was too arrogant. He tells the world that one of his New Year's resolutions is to write for some other properties, and the one he most specifically wants to write for is Deadpool.

But you know, the guy has a webcomic that's pretty popular, and has been paying his bills for five years. Heck, there might be folks at Marvel who read him. If he were his com
ic's main character Rayne, the very next thing that would happen would be for Marvel's lawyers to run up and offer him a contract. 

Really, when you have a forum like he does, you'd kinda be stupid not to mention your in
tentions this way. 

So, world, I'd like to write for Gotham Central. And I do not think that choosing a comic that's over and done with reduces my chances at all. :)
