submission guidelines

NOTE: We are only accepting submissions from already published authors at this time, including ones with proven success in webcomics. We are also not accepting submissions from authors outside of North America.

1) Please familiarize yourself with our company through our website or getting our catalog. We are interested in general fiction, humor, satire of fantasy and horror, mystery. We are not interested in superheroes. We have no need for illustrations alone including covers. (We do need translators from French, Spanish and occasionally Italian and letterers). We are also not set up to create teams, ie. match a writer with an artist or vice versa.
2) To submit please send a one-page synopsis of your story which will include any pertinent background and some character development. For the art, please send copies of a few finished pages or pencils for the project or at least of previous work in the same style you plan on using. Please do not at first send a complete finished story as that will only delay an answer greatly. To submit electronically: Send a low res pdf of no more than 3 megs as attachment. You may submit a link to a website as an extra source but not by itself.
3) If sending by mail and you want anything back, including an answer, please include a SASE.
4) We need to know up front what you're willing and able to do to help in creating buzz online around your graphic novel, including telling us what you may have already been doing.
