Comic Book Jobs: Checking Out Craigslist
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.
And finally, a mail-order comic book company in New York that specializes in vintage comic books needs a receptionist in their Union Square gallery.
When not receptioning, you’ll be doing general office tasks including scanning at this “fast-paced environment with little downtime.” Comic book knowledge is a plus and lunch is paid for each day, which could mean eating takeout at your desk.
Good luck, job seekers!
