just get through this semester just focus on that ugh
New World is a black-and-white sci-fi/fantasy comic anthology set to debut in the spring of 2015. Iron Circus Comics is currently seeking 8–10 submissions with the theme of exploration, colonization, conquest, assimilation, “going native,” appropriation, imperialism, strained relations… essentially, what happens when mutually un-contacted cultures, continents, and species collide. We want your strangest stories about situations where characters are encountering—and having to deal with—the alien.
Please limit your proposed story to between 3 and 20 black-and-white pages. All participating creators must be over 18 years of age, and able to read and write English fluently. Their proposed stories should be suitable for readers 15 years old and above.
What We Want
All kinds of on-theme stories.
Stories about adventure, romance, mystery, slice-of-life—just about anything is okay, as long as it’s rooted in what happens when different peoples, species, or worlds intersect.
This means a title (even just a working title), a premise, an estimated page count between 3 and 20 black-and-white pages, and a beginning, middle, and end, clearly summarized. Examples of the creator’s previous work should accompany all proposals, and all proposals should be submitted using this form. The deadline for submissions is November 20th, 2014.
New World will pay a $50 page rate, plus ten contributor’s copies per creator and the perpetual right to buy copies of the anthology for 50% off the cover price for as long as the comic is in print. There will also be a bonus for all contributors if the Kickstarter campaign does well.
Creators submit stories to New World with the understanding that, if accepted, they are ceding exclusive first worldwide rights to the story for a full calendar year from the date of publication, and non-exclusive worldwide reprint rights in perpetuity. Intellectual property rights will remain in the hands of the creator. We don’t want your characters, just your comics.
If your proposal is accepted, the final art must be designed to fit standard American graphic novel dimensions: 6.625” × 10.25”. What this means for your production process depends on your choice of medium, but the following guides may be useful.
Iron Circus Comics is run by awesome WOC Spike Trotman, and they recently came out with SMUT PEDDLER 2.
Any artist followers interested? If only I could actually draw.

Top Row: Protagonists of the original versions of the main games from gens one through three.
Bottom Row: Protagonists of the remake versions of those same games.
Added note: The first gen games didn’t have a girl trainer in the final, finished product, but a design of one by Ken Sugimori did still exist. She appeared in a few promotional materials, mostly only in Japan.
I loooooove this post.

He could’ve been an amazing live action Batman when he was younger.
