Episode Outline


Matt packs a punch in this interview and I am so glad that I was able to connect with him. During this chat we dive into his journey and coming from a totally different trajectory Matt literally walked into the comics industry.


Over the years and his experience as the COO/President of Top Cow, the lessons that he’s learned are incredible and so inspiring for those who are wanting to build their career in this industry and carve out a niche for themselves.


So, one thing that I think will hit home for many of you is how he talks about success, it’s not about the talent it’s about the work. With that, success in comics isn’t something given to you through the ether but something that you build, craft, mold, and develop yourself. I’m super excited for you to listen to this conversation and I know that this episode will get you motivated to take action.


  • What was Matt’s worst moment?


  • Are there struggles he is overcoming currently?


  • What does he think the digital age will do to comics?


All that and more in this interview.


Closing Advice


Be realistic about your goals and don’t give up.
