comic book resume

After sending off god knows how many resumes in the last few months, I've begun to suspect that the employment process goes something like this:
1.)Take each resume submitted
2.)Assign each resume a number
3.) Go to the races for the day
4.) Through a complex algorithm, assign each resume to a horse
5.) The winning horse gets whatever muppet wrote the resume a job.

Either that or they just swallow all the resumes whole, shit them out, and pick whichever one is most legible. I don't know. So this piece is meant to be a resume an employer couldn't possibly ignore. It features, among other things, a cartoon version of me punching Hitler. And, employers, if you don't find that funny, I wouldn't want to work for you anyway.

Edit: People keep linking to this thing! I'm glad you like it, but I'd like it even more if you headed over to my webcomic,, and checked it (and my other comics) out over there. Cheers!

I love this idea. I love it so much that I am asking permission to duplicate it but with my own story, artwork and such. Trust me it won't look the same, I just know that my story would be one of interest to potential employers. Thanking you in advance. I will post the thing on deviant first to get some feedback . I would love it if you would look over it. Give me a couple of weeks. Genius idea dude!

Hah! I recognise your name now: I've seen it tucked away next to items in the Nexus however many times.

This is rad. Pretty much the best way to do a CV. My application for Teachers' College looks eerily similar in some respects. No tyrant-punching though-- you got me beat there.

i'm turning my portfolio into a web comic :). But I am keeping my resume traditional...I usually add my portfolio in the email...if they don't like that then i don't know what else to do...maybe kill them all ;).
Dude, you are amazing!! What an awesome idea. I love it! If I were an employer you would be hired on the spot. Love your creativity...keep at it. Good luck with your future ventures.

This is just absolutely amazing and I really seriously honestly respect you, and when I'm older, I'll remember that I shouldn't be so uptight and proper when I'm trying to get a job. Creativity and humor is always a huge plus. :D THANK YOU AND YOU'RE AWESOME (and ridiculously good-looking, apparently). <3

I actually had an idea to do a resume as a comic book a while back. Well done!
maverickcarter's avatar
Heh, I'd be keen to see that. It worked, too - I got a job off it.

Who can argue when you're punching out Adolf Hitler?
It was mostly an idea, though. I'll probably use it for the next job I apply for at the end of summer, but I'll be sure to post it!

'A damn good worker' Haha! i love that pose.
Awesome idea man, and nice drawing to boot!
maverickcarter's avatar
Ha, thanks. That was one that I actually like. That and the fascist-punching, obviously.
Man, I find it so much easier using a real brush and ink than Photoshop and tablet. I suppose if I'd sunk as much time into using PS as I have into trying to sort out brush art it'd be the other way around.

Man, i love using a brush and ink, thing is I've been out of ink for months! got to get some in town tomorrow if i remember.

I want to see some brush work from you.....maybe draw a girl that way?
maverickcarter's avatar
I'll do that: will try and crank one out as a warm-up tomorrow before I get back into this interminable comic project of mine (which needs to be finished next week incidentally.)
My happiness with brush and ink work alternates alarmingly between zen-trance calm and screaming at the paper, so results tend to vary. I suppose it's just practice.
