Epic Canadiana #2, Cloudscape’s second anthology of Canadian superheroes, will be coming out later this year, and we want it to include a gallery of fake superhero comic book covers. If you’re interested in being a part of Cloudscape’s latest anthology, send in your design!
The deadline for all covers is May 1st. Send all submissions and questions to Bevan Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org. Anyone who lives in or has lived in Canada is free to submit.
What We Want
A cover of a Canadian comic that never existed. The image should include a title, cover price, and all the other things required for a comic cover. The hypothetical comic could be from any appropriate time period – modify the general look and price accordingly (such as a comic supposedly from the 1960s having a 10 c price).
The cover image must include at least one hero or villain. The characters featured on the cover could be already established members of the Epic Canadiana “world” or could be entirely new characters. They could also be historical Canadian figures (such as a crime-fighting Prime Minister Mackenzie King). Either the cover should be depicting a place somewhere in Canada or the characters themselves should be Canadian (or both).
The page should be 300 dpi. It should be in black-and-white (gray shades are acceptable).
1. Full Bleed Size: 7 inches wide x 10.5 inches high
These are the dimensions that the page files you send to us MUST be.
2. Trimmed Size: 6.75 x 10.25
This is the size that your comic will be after it has been printed and trimmed.
3. Live Area: 6.25 x 9.75
