Gothic Romance Anthology Seeking Stories of Love & Horror

gothic-talesHope Nicholson, comic historian and publisher of Bedside Press, has announced a call for submissions for Gothic Tales of Haunted Love, an anthology of new gothic romance comic stories:

“Stories should take into account the style and feel of the 1970s gothic romance comic genre. This is a genre where happy endings are not guaranteed, where romance can be beautiful, heartbreaking, or horrific. All eras and settings are welcome, they don’t need to be stuck in the Victorian era, and originality and creativity here is encouraged. Horror elements are allowed. For more information on this genre, read posts on Sequential Crush here.”

The following creators are currently attached to the project:

  • Cecil Castellucci & Willow Dawson
  • ALB
  • Sarah Searle
  • Melanie Gillman
  • Nicholas Burns
  • Leslie Doyle
  • Rahzzah
  • Katie West & Ray Fawkes
  • Janet Hetherington & Ronn Sutton
  • Xavière Daumarie

Submission periods will be open until February 1, 2017, and the comics will pay a $50 page rate. For more information, visit Gothic Tales of Haunted Love.
