Comic-Con Special Edition offers Portfolio Reviews with companies seeking talent. While you may not get a job offer, you will get an honest and professional appraisal of your work from seasoned industry insiders. All Portfolio Reviews take place in the Sails Pavilion in the second floor of the San Diego Convention Center.
Committed Comics is excited to provide portfolio reviews for aspiring fans and seasoned creators. They are seeking talented individuals who have the drive, desire, and talent to become comic book professionals. They are hoping to find sequential interior artists as well as creator-owned series (with creative teams in place). Concept and storyboard artist are welcome to submit their portfolios for networking purposes, but Committed Comics is not actively seeking talent in those arenas. Please visit the Committed Comics website to see how to structure your portfolios for review. Writers are encouraged to drop off writing samples at the Committed Comics small press booth, as those will be reviewed outside of the convention time.
