‘This is the first time in my life I’ve ever had money to speak of’

“I’m doing another one with Boom! right now. I’m probably going to stick with Boom! for the time being. Boom! has been very, very good to me. I’m not going out of my way right now to get a lot of projects off the ground, because then I’d have to do them. But I do have a couple of things that I’ve got going, little things here and there. I kind of like being able to relax. This is the first time in my life I’ve ever had money to speak of. So now I can relax a little bit, and I can just work on things that I want to work on. I don’t have to scramble for work.”

— veteran writer Steven Grant, when asked whether the Universal Pictures adaptation of 2 Guns has paved the way for more comics projects.

As The New York Times recently detailed, BOOM! Studios offers a “creator share” model in which Grant received a cut of what the studio paid for the film rights, said to be “just shy of seven figures.”
