The right man for the job – John Gruntkowski

I received news today that the person at Quebecor who helped me with getting the London Horror Comic printed had passed away unexpectedly.

I never met John Gruntkowski in person but we exchanged a flurry of e-mails and phone calls in the run up to the comic being printed.

The last e-mail I got from him was on October 26th following a positive discussion about changing the print spec for the next issue.

John was everything you could want in a professional rep, and as a first time publisher, he took the time to explain a lot of concepts that were new to me.  He was kind, patient and responsive and took the nervousness I had about talking to printers right away.

Making comics is a team process and surrounding yourself with people who have the right attitude is half the battle.

I was lucky to have John on my side.
