Hallowscream! Spooktacular Sixth Issue Submission Guidelines

by M.I.K.

 

We at Back From The Depths are once again looking for contributors for our freaky free, annual pdf horror comic, HALLOWSCREAM.

 

Well, Mister Freakyblobthing, it’s like this…

Submissions should be horror orientated and must be weird or spooky to make the final cut.

We are mainly looking for completed comic strips between 1-7 pages in length. Anything already completed is far more likely to make it into the comic.

Script submissions should also preferably be around 1-7 pages in length.

Eerie illustrations and artwork along with interesting horror/comic articles, scary short stories, petrifying poems or anything just plain creepy will also be considered.

To get an idea of the sort of stuff we’re after, you can download previous issues of Hallowscream here.

If you’re looking to illustrate something, get in contact and we’ll give you details of available scripts to see if anything suits your fancy.

We’ll also consider material previously published elsewhere, as long as the contributors own the copyright.

Completed artwork can be either colour or black and white, and should preferably be A4 (21cm x 29.7cm) 300 dpi jpeg or png.

Submissions can be sent to merjeagles@yahoo.co.uk or ghastlymcnasty@backfromthedepths.co.uk

As this is a non-profit, small press publication, contributors will not be paid but they will retain copyright on any material submitted.

 

We will accept submissions from the undead, (we’re all for equal opportunities here), but if you keep eating people we’re afraid we’d rather not associate with you because a) it’s not very nice and b) it’s probably highly illegal and we don’t want any further hassle from the authorities after that unfortunate incident with the werewolf.

Non-arty folk or people who just want to submit a sketch can still contribute doodles by taking part in the “Guess the face of The Reaper” competition. We’ll also accept entries to this competition from proper artists what can draw really good and that. Click the image below for details at a larger size.

 

Simply post a link to your artwork in the comments, (or anywhere else you see the pic), or send your entry to the merjeagles@yahoo.co.uk address.

DEADLINES :

 

Scripts, articles and text submissions : Sunday 27th July

Artwork : Sunday 5th October

Completed strips : Sunday 19th October.

The finished issue will be available online as a free pdf by October 31st, with a physical copy becoming available via Lulu.com, shortly afterwards. You can also keep up to date with Hallowscream news via the Facebook Page

 

You’re welcome.

Phantasm V : Ravager Teaser Trailer

So there’s apparently a Phantasm V now… Where the flip did that come from? Reggie Bannister, Michael Baldwin and Angus Scrimm are back, but although Don Coscarelli produced and co-wrote the film, it’s being directed by the other writer on the project, David Hartman, who, come to think of it, I believe I’m watching on […]

The Walking Dead – March To War TPB Review

Is the single issue comic book format dead? (This isn’t necessarily a rhetorical question; feel free to fill the comments section) Arguably not, the Big Two seem to do well every month, particularly when it comes to the variant covers, and Vaughn and Staples’ SAGA (one of the only books I buy monthly) had multiple […]

The World Beyond : May Contain Some Evil and Some Dead

Here’s a question for you… What has a remote cabin from which all means of escape have been cut off, point of view shots of something rampaging through the woods making freaky noises, a book of spells and incantations, something nasty hiding in the cellar and a disembodied hand attempting to throttle someone? The World […]

The Thing (Sweded)

In case you’re wondering, ‘Sweded’ films are amateur recreations of popular films using limited resources. The term comes from 2008 comedy film, “Be Kind, Rewind”, in which a video rental store has its entire stock accidentally wiped. The tapes need to quickly be replaced, which Jack Black and Mos Def’s characters do by re-filming the […]

UXB HC Review

uxb-hc-cover

So far, in my time on this planet, I’ve managed to stay pretty clear of the whole ‘print vs. digital’ thing. I imagine waves of geeks, hurtling across a field, some carrying tablets, others carrying print, each lambasting each other for ‘selling out on the medium’ or ‘not embracing the evolution of’ yadda yadda yadda.
