Comic Book Jobs: Toys, Actors And Taxes!

The WarIs there a hint of Geppetto in your gene pool? Can you design and build your own toys? If so, there's an opportunity for you at 1821 Comics (that's the new L.A.-based comic book company that's working with Stan Lee on The War).

They're looking for a Toy Developer to design and build prototypes for toys and action figures "related to our various graphic novel properties."

I've worked with toy designers before and given the nod to various prototypes, including a character I co-created called, oddly enough, Prototype. It's fun. It's like watching Michelangelo sculpt Aquaman.

An "action/comedy web series" has sent out a casting call for non-union actors to appear in Deathfist Ninja Gkaiser. The short film will pay "homage to Japanese tokusatsu shows (i.e. Power Rangers, Kamen Rider, Godzilla)."

In addition to the standard human roles, they're looking for actors to play Dark Shinobi, the Butterfly Ninjas, and Dragon Sage Siyoki. My acting experience is limited to eating a Caesar salad at an L.A. dinner theater but I'll definitely want to see this when it's online.

The shoot will take place in San Antonio, TX over 5 weeks' worth of Saturdays and Sundays. Payment is deferred, hence the non-union part.

And finally there's this from Tulsa World. Gardner Used Books & Comics in Tulsa, OK is advertising for "responsible, organized individuals for busy tax office."

I don't even know what any of that means. And I went to college.

Good luck, job seekers!
