We are particularly interested in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, All-Ages and Historical stories. If you feel your comic doesn’t fit into this don’t worry, we will still look at all submissions.
Preference will be given to projects that have all creative team members in place. It can be very time consuming finding artists, colourists and letterers for individual scripts.
Markosia works on a profit share basis. We take a share of the profits, then you are responsible for deciding how any remaining profits are split between your teams (unless it’s just you doing the entire thing, then you keep It all!).
If we are interested in your project you will firstly be required to sign an NDA while negotiations take place. This way we can deal with any enquiries or questions before you commit to a contract with us. Afterwards, when the book is confirmed, you will be required to sign a contract with Markosia, so make sure you read the contract in full!
Please only send one submission per team at a time. We want to focus on one proposal at a time and would rather see one solid pitch than a dozen barely thought out ones. You can submit another proposal if you are unsuccessful in 6 weeks from your previous submission date.
In terms of what we ask you for, when we say we want scripts in comic book format we mean they need to be presented in a certain way. The DC Comics Guide to Writing Comics and Alan Moore’s Writing for Comics are two books on formatting and deconstructing the writing process we’d highly recommend.
When we say we want to see sequential artwork this refers to a full page of comics panels.
