Call for submissions: City Pages Comix Issue 2014

Bring out your inner Jack Kirby or Jill Thompson for the annual City Pages Comix Issue!

This year's theme is: "I Know What You Did This Summer."

See also: City Pages Comix Issue 2013

Feel free to interpret the theme literally, with beach parties and barbecues, or go for something a little more sinister (take a leaf from that delightfully terrible '90s movie?). Whether you go dark like Frank Miller, nostalgic like Bill Watterson, or you want to make the comic strip all your own, we'd love to see your artwork.

The best entries will be selected to appear in print.

Last year, we featured 23 comics online, with select artwork making it into our print edition of the Comix Issue. Check out all of the art from the 2013 Comix Issue for inspiration.

Cartoonists must submit work that flows as true sequential art that tells a full story while adhering to our designated image dimensions, but there are no restrictions on the number of panels or how you use them. If you would like more space to tell your unique story, you may submit a proposal for a full-page comic via email before producing the artwork.


Color or grayscale images: 300 dpi.

If coloring with tones of gray, separate grays by 15%, i.e., 15 · 30 · 45 · 60 · 85% grays.

Comics must conform to one of the sizes listed in the Comix Issue guidelines.

Submit your entry with the following contact information:

Your full true name

The name you prefer to be credited in print

Your website, if applicable

Please remember to view our Comix Issue submission guidelines, which includes our exact image size guide, pay rates (both print and online submissions will receive compensation), and other important information.


Tuesday, July 29. (Though sooner is always better.)
