There is no specific career ladder for comic book publishers. Some may have started as comic book artists and then entered into the publishing world. Others may have a more traditional background in publishing, entering as interns or editorial assistants and moving up to senior and then management roles before publishing comic books. The career track varies. Managing editors in large comic book publishing companies may advance by leaving the job to start their own publishing company. Many comic book publishing professionals expand their careers by writing and contributing to industry publications and journals, and also by teaching.
