London-based Titan Comics seek new editor

Titan Comics LogoHow do you fancy Working in Comics? (And no, I’m not talking about my regular appeal for voluntary contributors to downthetubes.net – news writers and reviewers welcome!)

Titan Comics – whose titles include a whole range of titles from  Dan Boultwood’s It Came to Stuart Jennett’s Chronos Commandos  – are looking for a new editor.

The role offers extensive involvement in creator-owned titles from planning through to print. Commissioning experience is essential, as is an interest in and knowledge of the comics market, and the ability to meet deadlines and work under pressure. Previous experience of working in licensed publishing and commissioning comic strip would be an advantage, as would French language speaking/reading skills.
