10 Questions for Michael T. Gilbert
What was the first thing you remember reading?
I’m guessing one of those Dick and Jane children’s books, which I was having trouble with when I was a kid in the late 50s. To encourage me, my Grandma gave me a copy of a Jimmy Olsen comic. I resisted at first, but after I read it I was hooked on comics and never looked back.
What was the oddest thing you’ve ever been asked to do in your writing career? A specific assignment from a comic book company, screenplay for a producer, books for a publisher?
Some website hired me to come up with interactive comic book panels, in which I would create comic book scenes that users could insert their photographs into the scene.
