Good Comics Submission Guidlines

Updated: Feb 1, 2019

Pitches welcome

If you've got a longer form comic and you think it'll fit with what we do, please send us sample artwork and a brief outline of the project.

Please note: we are accepting pitches for our Good Zines line. Please see this post for more details.


What kind of comics are you looking for?

If you look through what we’ve published so far you can get a good idea of the things that make us tick. We’re looking for great stories - whether they’re autobiography, fiction, speculative, memoir, silent comics or other things. Our creators usually have a distinct art style and a distinct voice that we’re able to nurture by bringing their work to a wider audience. So we’re open-minded. But what we aren’t looking for are superhero comics or that sort of thing. No shooty-fighty.

Do you pay creators?

We cover the cost of printing the comic ourselves up front. Once the cost of the print run has been paid off, any profits are split 50/50 between us and the creator. We believe this is a model that helps to develop creators and to nurture the comics community, as it means the creator doesn't have to pay for their own print run up front, which is often an obstacle to people getting their work into print. Our split of the profits all goes back into the work of Good Comics, whether this is paying for convention tables, distribution costs, or printing other comics.

Are Q&A’s useful?

We’d like to think so, but if you have any other questions we haven’t covered please get in touch. If you are interested in pitching to us or you have any questions that are not addressed here please get in touch on goodcomics(at)hotmail(dot)comPlease put the word ‘Submission’ in the subject.
