Are there still openings for comic book reviewers?
Writing comic book reviews is a joy for me. I get to pick what I want to write about, I learn about the aspects of a good story and sometimes I even make money writing comic book or graphic novel reviews. Does any of that sound nice? The following steps focus on writing the basic comic book review.

Start with the classics. If you want to become a comic book reviewer, you need to know the basics of this vast world. That means exploring titles like “Watchmen” and “The Dark Knight Returns,” and the writers behind them. Who is Alan Moore? Who is Frank Miller? Who is Neil Gaiman? You should be able to answer those questions if you want to write comic book reviews, since many titles are similar in theme and need to be compared.
The Journal of Graphic Novels and Comics Book Review Editor is looking for one time and ongoing reviewers who are interested in reviewing books on comic and graphic novel scholarship. Reviews of single books are typically 600-1,000 words in length, while review essays of two books combined are usually up to 1,500 words. Reviews are due within six weeks of receiving the book.
Explore publishers outside of Marvel and DC. Sure, it’s fun reading 20 straight issues of Spider-Man or Batman. But as a comic book reviewer, you need to learn about small publishers, too. These comic publishers need your help more than the big two.
