Zuda, DC’s much awaited all new initiative, arrives in one week, according to an email sent to their mailing list. Also word of a launch party that day.

It’s been a while since our last e-mail. What can we say? It’s been kind of hectic here as we finalize development, do testing and fine tune the site. Hopefully you’ve seen some of our ads running in select issues of DCU, Vertigo and WildStorm comics. The other imprints have been very supportive so don’t forget to spread some of your comic dollars their way. We here at Zuda HQ are planning on doing things a bit differently – once we go live, we’re going to give our comics away for free! Take that, Corporate America! So when do we go live? I’m glad I rhetorically asked that.

Zuda Comics goes live October 30th, 2007!

On that magical day, when fairies push back the clouds and allow the golden rays of the sun to shine through, flowers bloom to the sweet melodies of harps, a parade of majestic, rainbow-colored unicorns prance down Broadway and corruption is eliminated as the rule of law is reestablishing in the United States (ok, maybe that last one is a bit far fetched) you’ll be able to read our first ongoing series and read, rate, vote and more in the first Zuda Competition!

Also, on that blessed of blessed days, when we no longer have to crowd into a “war” room and collectively code against a deadline, the submission doors open and they don’t ever shut – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. You’ll be able to send us your comic proposals any time, day or night, whenever YOU’RE ready. But wait…there’s more!

If you’re going to be in the New York City area (and are 21 years of age or older) on Launch Day (Tuesday, 10/30) then come on and join the Zuda staff for the Zuda Comics Launch Event and Live Submissions…um…Extravaganza! Face it, you can submit online any day of the week, but for this one night only, from 5:30 – 6:30 PM, Ron, Kwanza and Nika will be reviewing pitches live! Bring your best! And don’t worry, if you can’t make it at that time for the next couple of hours we’ll still have a drop box where you can leave your submission and we’ll have some laptops where you can submit “ye olde fashioned” way – digitally! Where will this magic happen? At one of the most magical places on Earth, of course.
