ComixTribe Seeking 6-Word Surf Noir Stories!


The comic book medium is a great platform for so many nowadays.  With various publishers transforming the way comic books are seen, it’s become now a more mainstream form of entertainment and even art.  Thanks to publishers like ComixTribe, so many more people have the opportunity to share their voice and have a platform for their work to be seen in a much wider way than ever before.  In recent news, ComixTribe are are seeking writers to contribute “6-word stories” to appear in the upcoming series Chum.  Described as “surf noir”, now’s your opportunity to submit your work!

ComixTribe has announced that it is seeking 6-Word “Surf Noir” stories to join those submitted by Ed Brisson (The Violent, Sheltered), Christopher Sebela (High Crimes, We(l)come Back), Duane Swierczynski (The Black Hood), and more, to be featured in the pages of CHUM, a new series debuting in April.

CHUM, described as “Pulp Fiction on the beach” is by Ryan K Lindsay and Sami Kivela and available for pre-order now.(For a good long look at the book, click here.)

“Ryan had the crazy idea to reach out to fellow comic writers and request dark, beach-themed stories to include as backmatter in the book. The catch? Each story was to be exactly six words long,” said publisher Tyler James.

“I knew they did things strange down under in Ryan’s native Australia, but it turns out the stories coming in are pretty awesome.”
