Iron Circus, publisher of such classic indie anthologies as the horror-themed Sleep of Reason and the science fiction FTL, Y’All, has announced a call for submissions for a new anthology: You Died.
“You Die is for the dreams, stories and fears humanity has surrounding what happens to us after death. Ancient lore of what awaits the dead, personal tales of what people have experienced, our favorite and hoped-for post-life scenarios, the dread of the unknown, and the acceptance of the inevitable. It’s a death-positive examination—and even celebration—of a universal human experience.”
The anthology is looking for comics in numerous styles: adaptions of death myths, fictional stories of people confronting mortality, autobiographical pieces, and even non-fiction about different death-related themes.
The anthology pays $50/a page. The deadline for all pitch submissions is February 28. For more information, read the You Died call for submissions.
