Comic Book Jobs: Random House, IGN and Blizzard

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials,

Fairy TailLots of good jobs out there this week, for those interested in the manga, the MMOs and the internets. Let’s check ‘em out:

Random House is looking for a Production Manager who can “handle all aspects of production, pre-press, and manufacturing related to manga titles.” This means “estimating, schedule generation and adherence, working with various groups including editors, designers, and compositors, routing, maintaining production specifications in an enterprise system, and resolving quality issues as needed.”

You need at least 5 years experience in trade book production, and preferably some manga or comics experience. If you’re one of those DC people getting downsized, please note that Random House is in New York.

Blizzard Entertainment is looking for a Franchise Development Producer which sounds like one of the coolest jobs ever. You’ll be tasked with creating “brand-extending merchandise for the next-gen MMO franchise, including: “Books / Novels, Action figures, Comics, Short movies and Apparel.” Have you clicked the link yet?

If you have different MMO experience, Carbine Studios “is looking for a Senior Quest Designer who can create high-quality quest content for an upcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing game.”

A small Los Angeles-based Entertainment Company (it’s not named but it sounds like an agency or a management firm) is looking for an assistant. You need “Agency or management experience” but there’s the potential for growth and the potential for that all important health insurance. Must be “Droid proficient” which probably isn’t a Star Wars reference.

IGN Comics, a division of IGN Entertainment, is looking for a full-time Executive Editor to "stay on top of the latest industry news and rumors" as well as schedule daily coverage, arrange exclusive content, and coordinate editorial media. If you've got the right internet and writing experience, this could be for you, funnybook fanboy.

Good luck, job seekers!
