Hire the best comics and graphic novel developmental editors


Putting together those final frames of your comic book or graphic novel is an unmatched feeling — but there’s plenty still to do. While creating your visual narrative has undoubtedly taken hours of consideration, it’s also likely difficult to be objective about bigger picture issues now you’ve spent so long with it. That’s where a specialized comic book and graphic novel developmental editor comes in.


Issues with overall structure, pacing, or characterization can distract from your art; if you hire a developmental editor, you can be sure nothing gets overlooked. But this often leads to large scale restructuring, so you need to know your editor has the expertise to back up their criticisms. Here at Reedsy, we accept just the top 3% of freelancers, so you can rest easy knowing your editor has a keen knowledge of comic books, graphic novels, and their nuances.
