"Someone draws the superheroes that leap off the page and onto the big screen. How much do these artists get paid? The answer is less than heroic. Freelance life requires the strength of a thousand Iron Men and Wonder Women -- chasing down payment and negotiating one's own contracts can often require inner confidence that no amount of spider venom that boost.

Dean Haspiel, an Emmy award winner and Eisner and Harvey Award nominee and creator of Billy Dogma and The Red Hook, illustrator for HBO's "Bored To Death," and artist for many comics including The Fox, The Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, X-men: First Class, Deadpool, Batman, Wonder Woman, Godzilla, Mars Attacks, Creepy, The Walking Dead, SpongeBob SquarePants, and collaborations with Harvey Pekar, Jonathan Ames, Inverna Lockpez, Jonathan Lethem, and Stan Lee tells us how he lives to his means, struggles to pay his bills and makes sacrifices to create the art that that heart tells him he must create."
