Internships at Fantagraphics Print

All internships are unpaid.

Interns at Fantagraphics receive the opportunity to learn about the comics-publishing process; they also gain knowledge of various aspects comics industry (the differences between the comic-shop market and the bookstore market, distribution, creator's rights, etc.). Please be advised that all comics are created off-site: interns do not write or draw comics during internship hours, although if someone in the office has the spare time, they're often happy to critique independent projects completed outside of the internship. In fact, no one at the office writes, draws, pencils, inks or hand-letters comics during business hours.

Interns' hours are scheduled during the Monday-Friday 10:00-6:00 time period. A minimum of 10 hours a week is required.
