After the last two, moderately successful releases of Super Fantastica Comix, we are now taking submissions for the Summer 2008 edition — although a bit later than expected! Below is all of the pertinent information.
Submissions lengths must be between one to six pages, black and white, or greyscale. All pages will be printed at 5.5″ x 8.5″ including an eighth inch gutter on all sides. Therefore all art must not exceed the printable dimensions of 5.25″ x 8.25″. Make certain to include your name, title of the entry, and a web address (if applicable) on the first or last page of the entry.
Biographies: Each artist must compose a biography of no more than 100 words. Make certain to include your name, previous works, and any applicable contact information (i.e. web addresses, MySpace accounts, etc.).
How to Submit:
We will take submissions both digital and physical.
If you choose to send your submissions digitally please format them at 800 dpi for black and white and 300 dpi for greyscale. Please save images as JPG or PSD file formats. Attach the files, along with how you would like to be credited, to superfantasticacomix at hotmail dot com
If you cannot send your submissions electronically, please contact superfantasticacomix at hotmail dot com and we will determine another method of shipment. Prior to submitting to this anthology, please contact superfantasticacomix at hotmail dot com with a rough estimate of your page count, so we can take into account the approximate size of the book and make a contingency for printing options.
The solid deadline for submissions is Saturday, September 6th, 2008 at 11:59 PM CST. These books will be released in September and will be available at establishments generous enough to carry them and at the MCBA Fallcon from on Saturday, October 4th and Sunday, October 5th 2008, which is the premiere comic convention in the upper midwest and in its 20th year! Twin Cities. For more information on the MCBA Fallcon, please visit their website.
Along with the usual shops in the Twin Cities, these books will also be available at Quimby’s in Chicago, Green Brain Comics in Detroit, and Vault of Midnight Comics in Ann Arbor. Additional sites will become available as the deadline approaches.
If you have a shop that you are aware of that consigns or purchases mini-comic anthologies, please e-mail superfantasticacomix at hotmail dot com with the appropriate contact information.
Each participant will receive one free copy of Super Fantastica Comix — not much I know, damn the economy. If the participant would like extra copies, they can pay for them at cost. Generally speaking cost will be half of the cover price. Cover price will be determined by the amount of contributors to the book.
