Comic Book Jobs: Checking Out Craigslist

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Conventions, Editorials, Movies

Girls LoveIt's that time of the week again! Time to check out my favorite website for job listings in the wide-ranging and eclectic field of comic book jobs.

Here's what's happening on craigslist:

A production company in the San Fernando Valley (California) is "seeking a lead actress for a live action comic book film." For the right superheroine, they'll be $350 per day. "Think comic book meets really goofy lines and fight scenes."

And if you're a guy, they're also looking for a villain. But comic book movie villainy pays less, $125 per day.

The Los Angeles Comic Book And Science Fiction Convention is looking for vendors interesting in setting up at their April 17th show.

Nostalgic Books and Comics in San Gabriel (California) is looking for "any comic-related costume people who may be interested in showing up and being a part of" their Free Comic Book Day celebration.

Comic Book Jobs: Checking Out Craigslist

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Conventions, Editorials

There are several odd jobs up on Craigslist this week. Let’s take a look.

If you can translate Korean into English, there’s a comic book company in Queens, NY that would like to hear from you. They’re paying by the book.

If you don't have any second language skills, maybe you’re good with a needle and thread? Strictly Underground is a Chicago-based comic book company and they want a costume made for their superheroine Prodigy. They’ve already got the gorgeous model lined up - you just have to dress her up so she can parade around town.

A local business in Long Beach is looking for some female cosplayers - and the ad says you only have to be “moderately attractive” - to pass out fliers near the convention center during the Long Beach Comic Con. You have to provide your own costume, though.


DJ Robot Delegated to Receptionist Duties

DJ RobotToyota created DJ Robot to be a part of their robotic band, which included a trombone, tuba, French horn, and percussionist that entertained at the Aichi World Expo in 2005. Unfortunately, he has since undergone retraining for his new gig as a receptionist. Perhaps Toyota feels that rapping to customers will be a boon to its business or maybe the company put the 1 meter tall DJ in the realms of the blue collar worker so that it could concentrate more of its efforts on its new musically inclined bot, one that really can play the violin.
