Speculative Speakers Directory: Glenn Hauman

Glenn Hauman







Glenn Hauman: Vice President, Operations and Production Manager, ComicMix 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, 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 fifteen 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. Most recently, Glenn has been working as a webmaster, assistant editor, and production manager for arrogantMGMS, a comics packing company now involved with ComicMix. Glenn manages their GrimJack.com, JonSable.com, MundensBar.com websites; he also runs the websites for comic book pros PeterDavid.net and BobGreenberger.com. My career is the definition of varied, and the one constant is that I find myself doing something new that still draws on past experiences, Hauman said. I can't imagine something that draws on all the things I've done and all the things I want to do more than ComicMix.
