Shore Leave 36 Guest: Glenn Hauman

Glenn Hauman

Glenn Hauman fulfills one of the unspoken staffing requirements at a comics company. "Dwayne McDuffie at Milestone, Mike Richardson at Dark Horse, Denis Kitchen at Kitchen Sink, Jim Shooter at Marvel and Valiant - every comics company needs to have at least one ridiculously tall guy on it. With me on board at ComicMix, we'll have somebody who can change light bulbs and play center for the inter-company baseball league."

When he was in junior high school, Glenn took art lessons from John Buscema, the legendary (and quite tall) Marvel Comics artist. "I knew I could never draw like that that," he says. Instead, he found other ways to make comics his career, starting with working in a local comic shop in high school, and then the production department at DC Comics.

He has sixteen years of experience in publishing, including work for Random House, Simon & Schuster, DC Comics and Apple Comics. Mr. Hauman has worked as a graphic designer, editor, photo retoucher, CD-ROM producer, story consultant for films, and radio show co-host of Destinies - The Voice of Science Fiction on WUSB 90.1 FM at SUNY/Stony Brook.

His latest Star Trek e-book, Creative Couplings, has been getting press coverage for its portrayal of the first Klingon-Jewish wedding. In addition to Star Trek, he's written other licensed tie-in works for X-Men and Farscape, and urban fantasy for Baen Books.

He has been a featured speaker on the future of publishing at numerous industry trade shows. He was a founder of internet pioneer companies BiblioBytes, Hell's Kitchen Systems (bought by Red Hat in 2000), and Lot Auctions. Glenn also manages the GrimJack.com, JonSable.com, and MundensBar.com websites and is the webmaster for comic book pros PeterDavid.net and BobGreenberger.com.

Glenn Hauman: The man, the myth, the miracle worker. Writer, editor, colorist, graphic designer, webmaster, tired person. Writer of the first Klingon Jewish wedding ceremony. Currently working on all of this, and projects that are under NDA at press time -- but come up to him and ask if you haven't seen the press coverage, he'll talk your clothes off. Ears. He'll talk your ears off.

He is also a founding member of Crazy 8 Press, the new internet publishing venture launched at Shore Leave 33.
