Iron Circus Comics

Last few days for the Kickstarter for Iron Circus’ new science fiction anthology

The latest graphic novel anthology by Iron Circus Comics is in the last few days of its Kickstarter. FTL, Y’all!: Tales From the Age of the $200 Warp Drive  is a collection of comic stories about an Earth where anyone and everyone has access to the stars! It features a wide variety of stories from numerous cartoonists, including Cloudscape president Jonathon Dalton.

Six months from now, detailed schematics anonymously uploaded to the Internet will describe, with absolute precision, how to build a faster-than-light engine for $200 in easily-available parts. Space travel will be instantly—and chaotically—democratized. The entire cosmos is suddenly within reach of all humankind, without organization, authority, or limitation.  This comics anthology is about what happens next. With 25 stories and over 350 pages of comics, FTL, Y’all! is one of Iron Circus Comics’ biggest anthologies ever. 

The Kickstarter closes this Friday, so if you want to buy a copy of this great new anthology, visit the FTL, Y’all Kickstarter soon.


Call for Submissions: Sci-Fi/Fantasy Comic Anthology from Iron Circus Comics

Iron Circus Comics

Iron Circus Comics, who previously published The Sleep of Reason horror anthology, has now set its sights on science fiction and fantasy:

New World is a black-and-white sci-fi/fantasy comic anthology set to debut in the spring of 2015. Iron Circus Comics is currently seeking 8–10 submissions with the theme of exploration, colonization, conquest, assimilation, ‘going native,’ appropriation, imperialism, strained relations… essentially, what happens when mutually un-contacted cultures, continents, and species collide. We want your strangest stories about situations where characters are encountering—and having to deal with—the alien…. Stories about adventure, romance, mystery, slice-of-life—just about anything is okay, as long as it’s rooted in what happens when different peoples, species, or worlds intersect.”

Right now they’re looking for a story overview, which includes the premise, page page (between 3 and 20 black-and-white pages), and summarized plot. The deadline for this stage is November 20th, 2014.

New World will pay a $50/page rate, plus ten contributor’s copies per creator and the perpetual right to buy copies of the anthology for 50% off the cover price for as long as the comic is in print. There will also be a bonus for all contributors if the Kickstarter campaign does really well.
