  • Do not include any watermarks, descriptions, printer registration marks, or copyright information embedded within your submission's image.
  • Submit only one comic at a time.

Additional Guidelines

  • Submissions should not contain unauthorized copyrighted material. They should consist only of original material that you have permission to have published.
  • Submissions may be modified for clarity or suitability.

Due to the number of submissions that we receive, it is not possible for  us to publish all of them or to respond to each one individually. Please do not send duplicate submissions or follow-up inquiries, doing so will not improve your standing. If your submission is chosen for publication, you will be notified by email.
