Titan Books is looking for a few good men — or women — to write licensed comics for the youngsters. Come on, people, put your money where your mouth is:
Titan Magazines, the UK-based publisher of the originated Wallace & Gromit Comic and such best-selling licences as The Simpsons, Futurama, SpongeBob SquarePants and Star Wars, will be expanding its range of originated comics based on high-profile TV and movie properties in 2007.
As such, we’re looking for versatile comics artists and writers to produce originated, licensed material for an exciting new range of UK children’s comics, aimed at 8-14 year olds. Titan is launching a number of new monthly titles, all of which will require a large amount of original material.
Artists and writers can learn how they can submit portfolios, plots and samples by going to http://www.titanmagazines.com/comicsubmission
or, alternatively: http://www.titanmagazines.com/titan/comicsubmission.html
Interested creators can also get in touch direct by emailing:
Please bear in mind that any artists or writers will need to be approved by external licensors as well as our in-house editorial team.
Please note that these comics will not feature superheroes, and all submissions in that vein will be rejected. We are also not looking for original comics ideas at this point – these comics will all feature new stories featuring existing, licensed characters. We will not be accepting submissions for Simpsons and Futurama Comics, SpongeBob SquarePants Comic or Star Wars Comic.
Please pass this news around to any creators you think would be interested – we guarantee to look at everything submitted to us!
