Bring out your inner Jack Kirby or Jill Thompson for the annual City Pages Comix Issue!
This year's theme is: "Summer Camp"
Feel free to interpret the theme however you wish: recreate memories from your own time at summer camp, go feisty with a riff on Wet Hot American Summer, channel young Lindsay Lohan/Hayley Mills from The Parent Trap, or get twee by taking a leaf from Moonrise Kingdom.
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 20 comics online, with select artwork making it into our print edition of the Comix Issue. Check out all of the art from the 2014 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.
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 28. (Though sooner is always better.)
