You have something to say? Now it’s time to say it… In comic book form! MUTINY MAGAZINE is ready to welcome you with open arms. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or an undiscovered talent, we want to hear from you!
So, if you read this, you already know about our MUTINY MAGAZINE publication (and If you don’t, check it out here). MUTINY MAGAZINE is a blend of mainstream and independent comics featuring interviews and editorial content as well as original comic stories from independent creators.
We call it “the Switzerland of comics” (as in, it’s neutral and ecumenic).
So if you think you’ve got what it takes, here’s what we’re looking for:
1- Short stories. Between 1 and 8 pages long. These stories have to be self-contained (i.e have a beginning, a middle and an end). They should feature characters YOU OWN. These can be stories you did for a webcomic, a previous and unavailable anthology, a pitch for a publisher that was never accepted (but still very good) or something entirely new.
2- Emotional stories. We believe in stories that make us feel something. That leave a mark on us. We want to read those stories. If you just want to spend 8 pages showing super-people fighting each other, we’re not the right outlet for that. Sorry. There can be action. But stories have to be meaningful. It’s important. Thank you.
3- Stories representing the world we live in. That means universal. Diverse. Inclusive. Cosmopolitan. Your story can be read on the other side of the planet, if you want to write a story about something really specific to a culture or a country, they might not be interested and we want to cater to the largest possible audience without compromising substance.
4- Characters over high concepts. We love high concepts, but a short story works better when it highlights characters. Please keep that in mind.
5- No boundaries in styles. We want to be amazed and we think our readers want that too. MUTINY MAGAZINE welcomes ALL styles, ALL genres. European style, Anime Style, American style, Negative Zone style… We love them all. As long as there’s excellence in storytelling, we’re interested.
6- The gold standard. We want to bring out the best. In story, art, colors, lettering… everything. No compromise. If your story is amazing but you don’t have a letterer or a color artist, we can help you. Don’t let that stop you.
NOW… WHAT’S THE DEAL?
MUTINY MAGAZINE and FairSquare Comics will never take any rights away from you. Everything published goes through a License publishing agreement. It’s Creator Owned. We’ll just pay you a fee to run it in the magazine once. Now, if you want to create more comics with us, we can always talk about it. But it’s a choice we leave to you (we’re the cool kids, though, just sayin’…).
