Here is an opportunity/contest for writers to create a super-heronie for Image and Shadowline. The winning entry will be featured in a self-titled three issue mini-series to be drawn by fan-favorite artist, Franchesco! (She-Dragon, Green Lantern Corps Quarterly) and back-end profits will be split between the creators.
The original link can be found here, but the gist of the contest is as follows:
Contestants e-mail a BRIEF one paragraph story synopsis by January 31,2008 to: email@example.com. Stories/concept must be original with original characters. No pre-existing characters may be used unless owned by contestant.
Ten semi-finalists will be chosen from all entries received by the above date and notified by e-mail. They will then be required to turn in 5 (five) fully scripted pages by February 29, 2008.
The five finalists will be announced and their synopses posted on Newsarama on March 10. Newsarama posters will be encouraged to vote on their favorite. (Writers are strongly advised to direct traffic to the contest via message boards, myspace, etcâ€¦every vote counts!) Polls will close on April 4, 2008.
The winner will be announced April 28 with initial concept art/character design by Franchesco. First issue will be solicited with a cover date of November 2008.
