++ A little thing I wrote about comics: art-of-kenesu.tumblr.com/post/…


In a nutshell, I wasn't very vocal concerning the current landscape of, well, everything. There's one side that wants one thing and the other side that wants something entirely different. It's tug-o-war, really. My little rant is more of an open challenge to creators and readers alike: Make your own stories and if you can't, support your independent comic creators.  There are more stories and characters in the ether, you just have to find them... or create them. There's an art/writing style out there that really speaks to you, but you're looking in the wrong direction.  

There's no black and white to this industry, but rather various shades of grey across the board. Rather than fight an uphill battle, attempting to get large companies to change their shade, you're overlooking the creator that has just what you're looking for.

++ On that note, here's some links to help you out:

Oni Press

Open Submissions, which is kind of rare practice for companies. Folks like Marvel and DC made it difficult to break in with original content. Oni Press is embracing your freshness: onipress.tumblr.com/post/11405…

Image Comics

This company is the mecca of creator owned content. Simple as that, really. Image has a ton of diversity and genres to choose from: imagecomics.com/about/submissi…

Action Lab Entertainment

Much like Image Comics. You'll find a wide variety of books geared towards kids and adults alike. www.actionlabcomics.com/faq/

Antarctic Press

They seem to have an obsession with steam lately, so if you're into Steampunk, this is definitely your place. Can't seem to find the submissions area, so you just might have to email them for specifics: www.antarctic-press.com/

Top Shelf Comix

"We want to know what you're up to." www.topshelfcomix.com/contact/…

Dark Horse Comics

Concerning guidelines, they're the most extensive. They even look at writers, which is RARE. Totally worth it: www.darkhorse.com/Company/Subm…

Comixology

Digital distribution? Why not? submit.comixology.com/

Thanks again! That has always been my favorite (and the best) version of the Bat, and it really means a lot that my piece could bring enjoyment to someone of your immense talent! :D (Big Grin)

Thanks! I had a blast doing those Pulp scifi covers - they were great fun to do... I had hoped that the template I made to create Pulp covers (in my Resources) would catch-on, and there would be loads of them, all over DA. Sadly, nope!

Thanks again! :-)
