Are you a comic creator? Do you want to have your comics published? Then this one is for you. For its July issue Kindle, a Kolkata-based art, culture and society magazine, is planning a Graphic Novel and Comic Art special.
In accordance with this theme, the July cover story will be one that explores the power of the comic image and its relevance as a serious literary art.
In this regard, Kindle is looking to publish a small compendium of 10 four-page comic strips, that together |give a taste of what young, independent comic artists are doing right now.
The strips would be then taken together to create a collector's edition booklet to be given away with the July issue.
The comic strips can deal with any subject or idea of the creator’s choice as Kindle has left coming up with plot ideas entirely to the creators and any plot is welcome.
However, stories should not contain excessive sex or violence or any element that is not secular. To be a part of this edition, creators need to send a four-page black and white comic in A-4 size JPG/TIFF images scanned at 300 dpi.
The deadline for the submissions is June 15. Comics chosen will get the writers Rs 500 per page.
A youth magazine, published from Kolkata since August 2008, Kindle is perhaps the only magazine of its genre in India, to address the youth via critical socio-political dialogues.
