Angela Rufino is the assistant editor on the Minx books, football fan, and all round good egg. I thought I’d ask her some questions about what that job entails and how much time she spends on trains.
1. Who are you, where are you from, where are you going?
My name’s Angela Rufino and I’m an assistant editor for Vertigo/DC Comics. Originally I’m from Italy but now I call Philadelphia home. Where am I going? Usually to and from work since I have a four hour commute.
2. A four hour commute? Is that two hours each way, do you take the train? How do you pass the time on the journeys, listen to music, do some work, read comics?
Yes, luckily I take the train and don’t have to drive in to New York City. I actually don’t mind it. It gives me time to catch up on my reading and rock out to my sweet iPod playlists. By the way, I have a question for you: Why is it that Brits create the best music and have the greatest bands?
It’s often said that the UK’s generous unemployment benefit has allowed musicians to hone their craft without the pesky interference of working a day job. But I think the days of living it large on the dole are long gone.
