The last editor I have to mention is Marianna Hane Wiles, the Managing Editor of Trillium Editing who I met in Portland through mutual friends. I later did a silent comic in my Water Street project called Mariana 1/365 (spelled according to the tales, rather than her own), which her name made me think of. A page of the artwork from that piece went into her possession, and from her, an offer for editorial assistance if I ever needed it. Here, I finally had the opportunity to ask her assistance.
And she gave it. Extremely thorough, both in overlying themes and character, but as well on an individual strip level. I also was very clear to what kind of feedback I desired as well as asked her specific questions. She complied with all that to the letter, thoroughly, intelligently and very organizedly. So if you’re needing an editor, hire her. Really.
