It's the time of the year when we at Back From The Depths are once again looking for contributors for our freaky free annual pdf horror comic, HALLOWSCREAM, so here are the submission guidelines...
Submissions should be horror orientated and must be weird or spooky to make the final cut.
We are mainly looking for completed comic strips between 1-7 pages in length. Anything already completed is far more likely to make it into the comic.
Script submissions should also preferably be around 1-7 pages in length.
Eerie illustrations and artwork along with interesting horror/comic articles, scary short stories, petrifying poems or anything just plain creepy will also be considered.
To get an idea of the sort of stuff we're after, you can download previous issues of Hallowscream here.
If you're looking to illustrate something, get in contact and we'll give you details of available scripts to see if anything suits your fancy.
We'll also consider material previously published elsewhere, as long as the contributors own the copyright.
Completed artwork can be either colour or black and white, and should preferably be A4 (21cm x 29.7cm) 300 dpi jpeg or png.
Submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
As this is a non-profit, small press publication, contributors will not be paid but they will retain copyright on any material submitted.
Scripts, articles and text submissions : Friday 29th July 2022
Artwork : Saturday 15th October 2022
Completed strips : Saturday 22nd October 2022.
The finished issue will be available online as a free pdf by October 31st, with a physical copy becoming available via Lulu.com, at a later date. You can also keep up to date with Hallowscream news via the Facebook Page.
