Comics Jam


Cloudscape Televised 24-Hour Fundraising Comic Jam

As the ultimate expression of our fundraiser for Giants of Main Street, we’re going to have a 24-hour comic jam at the home of our esteemed founder Jeff Ellis. The jam starts at 8:00 tonight and continues until 8:00 tomorrow.

Watch the cream of Vancouver comic artists draw, create, discuss, argue, and go slowly insane over a 24-hour period at 24-Hour Comic Jam.

Experience the madness!

Calling All Canadian Heroes!

Cloudscape wants YOU for All-Canadian Comics, an anthology of Canadian-focused heroism, many inspired by classic Canadian comics from the Golden Age of Comic Books. Many of the characters in this anthology will be superheroes, those with special powers or skills who have adopted larger-than-life personas to confront injustice and evil. However, other kinds of Canadians heroes will also be featured: adventurers, explorers, men and women of exceptional character and dedication. Stories that deal with various Canadian social issues or minorities (ethnic or psychological) are encouraged, as are stories that explore what it means to be Canadian or what it means to be a hero.

This will be an on-line publication in “ebook” format, so no physical books will be produced. Contributors will keep the rights to their individual characters and stories. Contributors will not be paid an initial fee for their story, but will receive a percentage of the ebook sales.

Deadline for initial character submissions and story profiles will be May 5.

VANCOUVER COMIC JAM ART SHOW:

If you are submitting a piece and already have it complete, please feel free to bring it to the upcoming jam as I’ll be collecting pieces. If it’s not ready yet, don’t sweat it. Just shoot me an email and we’ll make arrangements.

Below is the list of participants so far. If you are planning to participate and your name is not on the list, please let me know. Likewise if you need to drop out or if your name is on the list and shouldn’t be, please also let me know.

As you can see, there are a lot of participants, so I’m officially limiting everyone to 1 submission (unless your submissions are pretty small). If you have more than one and there is room, then I will put up more, but at this point I wouldn’t bank on it.
