Comic Book Jobs: Checking Out Craigslist

Depression Era Job SeekerI love checking out Craigslist. It’s like channel-surfing with classified ads. You can always find interesting things, and before you know it, several hours of your day have vanished. Let’s see what comic book jobs are out there:

In New York, A.P.N.G. Enterprises has a “bold comic book series” called New-Gen, which they’re rolling out “for multiple platforms including movies, TV, video games and of course more comics, distributed by Marvel.”

And they need a couple of interns for three-months, rewarded with college credit. Specifically, they want “people who know and have a passion for comic books and science fiction to help us get the word out about the world of New-Gen.”

If you’re up on the social media apps, and aren’t afraid to go old-school by handing out fliers or working their booth at the New York Comic Con in October, poke your resume over there.

Also in New York, Michael Simon Design is also looking for a minimum 15-hour-per-week intern interested in the world of fashion. The Michael Simon label has a new “contemporary line” called Smitten that was influenced by “our designers love for retro romance comic books from the 1940’s and 50’s.”

According to their listing, this opportunity allows you “to experience fashion from the inception of design to the fruition of a full, saleable collection.” It’s unpaid, but you’ll get a clothing allowance and (maybe) college credit.

Over in Los Angeles, an “established L.A. based comic book publisher” is offering an unpaid internship. You’ve got to love comics, working hard, moving boxes, packing web orders, and proofreading comics. They might also pay you to travel to conventions.

On a non-intern level, an unknown artist wants to create a “Twitter comic book” that he intends on publishing. The artist is looking for tweets to use as “dialogue, street signs (background elements), and sound effects.” Unfortunately he’s got no money for your tweeting genius.

And finally, wouldn’t it be funny if you were the only one who showed up in full costume?
