Comic Book Artists

Advancement Prospects

There is no specific career ladder for comic book artists. Full-time comic book artists may advance to senior-level and managerial roles within the publishing company's art department. With years of experience, they may start their own comic book publishing companies. Others may write articles and books about the field or teach in art schools. Most advance by developing a fan following and moving on to higher profile characters and projects or creating their own comics that become popular enough to be turned into movies and television.
