A common trait among comic book artists is that they read comic books regularly and they draw regularly to improve their skills. Get active in the comic book art community by joining an online club. Learn more about comic books by attending comic book conventions such as Comic-Con International in San Diego or the New York Comic Con. Another good way to get first-hand experience and see if this is the career for you is by volunteering at a comic book publisher. Look for independent comic book publishers that may be located near you and contact them to learn if they can use any help in the office. This will typically be administrative support work but it will give you the opportunity to observe the everyday activities involved in creating comic books. Part-time or volunteer work will also provide you with the chance to observe and talk with comic book artists and editors.
