I would also like to add a couple restrictions:
- You need to have a comic with at least some kind of archive to submit. The comic does not need to be on Keenspace since we aren't allowed to plug Keenspace. At least 20 comics online will make a good base but we can take it on a case-by-case basis (such as, you have more comics in your buffer than you have online).
- Those who appeared in the previous sampler are allowed to make submissions but people who were not in the previous sampler get dibs on the pages. If we have too many submissions, new people people get in. Old people get to wait for volume 3.
- Brief story comics are preferrable to single page ads. Try to limit the storylines to 2-3 pages, though. Take up too much space and you risk getting dropped because too many people submitted pages. There are no requirements for subject matter, only content requirments.
There will be 20, 24 or 28 content pages. One of which will be an introduction describing what the book is about. The inside front cover will be a list of contributors. The inside back cover will show the copyright (same one as before) and cover artist info.
Please post small (360x540) versions of your pages so we can see them. Post links to the large images so the compiler can download them (this will probably be cortland again). Do not email the large images. Cortland has dialup. You will only be hurting him if you email them. Post the links here.
So we need:
Front Cover: color 1650 x 2550 (open to anyone since it's not a plug)
Back Cover: color 1650 x 2550 (open to anyone since it's not a plug)
19, 23 or 27 content pages: 3000 x 4500 in high contrast grayscale, meaning it should look good if you set the threshold and print it in 2-color B&W. Color content pages will not be accepted.
Notice: Pages from your comic are acceptable if they meet the requirements. However, you ARE agreeing that these pages will go into this sampler are can be printed and distributed by ANYONE for money. If you're comfortable with this, submit away.
