Cronin Theory of Comics - It is Easier for a Good Artist to Break In

While thinking of writers to feature for my Month of Writing Stars, I came across a few points that kept popping up in my mind, so I figure I might as well post them all right now!

Here is the first one, which is fairly evident, I guess, but it does not hurt to say it (especially as it ties into the later points).

A "good" comic book artist has a much easier chance at breaking into the comic book industry than an equally "good" comic book writer.

Mostly it is because of supply and demand (writers can write multiple books while artists usually can only draw one book at a time, so there is more of a need for artists), but I also think that it is easier for the editors who do the hiring of artists and writers to identify a "good" artist than a "good" writer.
