Comic Strip Depicts ’10 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Journalist’

by Mallary Tenore Tarpley

"Journalists are critical thinkers who dig deep."

Patrick Garvin, a graphic artist at the Florida Times-Union, sent me an e-mail earlier this week with a link to a comic strip he just created. The comic is based off of one of Jill Geisler’s popular Poynter Online columns from last year, “10 Reasons You Should Hire a Journalist.” Garvin said he created it in honor of a colleague who was recently laid off. It’s a good visual representation of Jill’s column and a reminder of all the marketable skills journalists have. (And of how awesome they are!)

The image you see above is just one part of the comic strip. You can see the whole strip here.
