JobWatch: Bad Idea Comics Hiring Editors & Sales Managers

For a comic book publisher that is no longer meant to be making comic books (although it obviously is) Bad Idea Comics seems to be hiring enough folk. Promoting the fact that they are recruiting for a Managing Editor, Assistant Editor and Sales Manager. Bad Idea Comics is a relatively new comics publisher from Dinesh Shamdasani, Atom Freeman, Joshua Johns, Warren Simons, and Karl Bollers. A direct-to-retailer publisher, eschewing digital and trade paperbacks in favour of one-cover one-per-person comic book sales from big comic book names. And who recently declared they were no longer publishing comic books and we didn't believe them. And we certainly don't believe them now. So… does anyone fancy any of the following? And if you are successful, remember where you heard it! And next month's San Diego Comic-Con should be quite revelatory…
