Comic Book Jobs: DC Comics Burbank

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, DC Comics,

Hawkman Mini FigureIt seems like hardly a day goes by that DC Comics doesn’t post a new job listing for one of their many offices.

This time, the office is in Burbank, and the job is Digital Production Clerk for their Digital Publishing department. In other words, a starter job in the department of the future.

You’ll be mostly scanning comic book pages from either line art, film, or printed images on flatbed and copydot scanners. Good hand-eye coordination seems like a must-have.

But you’ll also need mad computer skills to make color corrections and editing fixes, and keep your equipment in good working order so the IT guys don’t come upstairs and make fun of you and those who hired you.

You’ll need a college degree or its equivalent, along with prior “computer, prepress, print production, or digital publishing production experience,” and all manner of Macintosh skills to help you multi-task, work under pressure and put in the necessary overtime.

Good luck, job seekers!
