Humanoids Wants A Comic Book Sales And Marketing Director In Los Angeles For The Third Year Running

This looks like the job that Tim Pilcher was recently doing for comic book publisher Humanoids, from sunny Brighton on the south coast of England. Could it be the reason he is no longer doing the job be that the job is now to be done from Los Angeles?

Could be. Here’s the listing for anyone who wants to sell European comic books to Americans…

Although, it seems that’s what they were doing in September 2016, looking for:

“…a multitasking individual to serve as the Director of Sales and Marketing under the general direction from the Chief Operations Officer (COO), and who will be responsible for managing distribution, sales, and marketing for Humanoids’ publications throughout North America and the UK.

And in October 2015:

The legendary graphic novel publishing house and production company Humanoids is seeking a multitasking individual to serve as the Director of Sales and Marketing under the general direction from the Chief Operations Officer (COO), and who will be responsible for managing sales, marketing, public relations, distribution and customer support for Humanoids’ English language publications throughout North America.
