A Freshman at James Madison University, Sean wrote his essay for GWRIT 102D.

I am currently studying in the school of media arts and design at James Madison University, and hope to work for Marvel or DC Comics some day. I can't help thinking I'm not good enough to get published so I look for all the help I can get. Two yeas ago I hadn't picked up a comic book for years, but then I became engulfed in a new exciting genre of writing.

My teachers always reminded me that I should read as much as possible, but they were talking about newspapers and novels. My point is, don't throw out a medium because it is culturally taboo, and keep searching until one of those mediums fits well enough to write a decent essay about.
