Calling all cartoonists: We're looking for talented artists to submit work for our annual City Pages Comix Issue.

This year's theme: Summer Love in the Twin Cities.

Feel free to interpret that however you wish, be it a short-term summer romance, summer wedding season, taking a road trip with your honey, or just something you love about summer. Whatever summer love means for you is on topic.

The best entries will be selected to appear in print.

Last year, we featured 12 comics online, with select artwork making it into our print edition of the Comix Issue.

Check out the 2016 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 (color is preferred): 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

Both print and online submissions selected will receive compensation.
