Once again Darby Pop is accepting submissions for their “Breaking Into Comics” contest. Details below.
Assignment: Writers will need to submit a complete 11-page comic book script focusing on one of two crime-fighting partnerships – Atalanta and Frostbite or Flying Fox and Jolt. And your tale must feature either their first meeting or their first mission together (or both). Artists will need to submit a pin-up page of either Atalanta and Frostbite or Flying Fox and Jolt along with one full-page example of sequential art. The two winning artists will then bring the two winning writers’ scripts to life while working with Darby Pop Publishing’s editorial team. All four characters – and an overall sense of the world, tone, etc. – can be found in the original Side-Kicked trade paperback and/or digital single-issues.
Prizing: First and foremost, writers and artists will see their work published and publicized as a part of the Side-Kicked Vol. 1 trade paperback reprint AND as a special digital issue of Side-Kicked on ComiXology. In addition, each of the winning writers will receive $100 and 2 copies of the trade paperback. Each of the winning artists will receive no less than $200 and 4 copies of the trade paperback.
