2) Your proposal package must have a signed, dated submissions form from each member of your creative team.
Any proposals without this document will be discarded unread.
3) Due to volume of submissions, we cannot return proposal packages, but will keep them on file for two years.
Allow up to thirty business days to hear back from us.
4) If submitting multiple proposals, please submit each separately.
5) Send clean, black and white photocopies only. Do NOT send originals. Label each page accordingly:
Do not forget to number your pages.
Your proposal should be typed or typeset, and contain the following:
a) A completed submissions form on top of the proposal. If you are a minor (under the age
of 18), a parent or legal guardian must also sign.
b) Include a resume, if applicable.
c) Include brief descriptions of the main characters. Be sure to include
illustrations of the characters in various poses with different emotions/expressions.
d) A 1 – 3 page overview of the entire multi part story, beginning, middle, and end.
Be brief and to the point. Please indicate how many issues you intend the story arc to run, based on 8 page units.
