Fantagraphics is a Seattle-based alternative comic book publisher. Blending traditional comics with a more literary and fine art style, Fantagraphics was one of the pioneers of the new breed of underground comics. In the past 10 years, the company has published work by notable artists such as Daniel Clowes (Ghost World), Joe Sacco (Safe Area Gorazde) and Chris Ware (Jimmy Corrigan). Fantagraphics also publishes The Comics Journal, a magazine that examines the world of comics from an “arts first perspective.”
Interns work in the marketing, art and editorial departments. Marketing interns assist the Fantagraphics publicist by updating databases, proofreading copy and maintaining press files. Art interns scan and clean up artwork using Photoshop and other graphic design tools. Editorial interns conduct research, proofread, fact-check and practice writing. All Fantagraphics interns spend some time filing, sending out mass mailings, photocopying and assisting in the library.
Open to all current college students, recent grads and graduate students over 18 years of age.
