Announcing 40 Winks!

UPDATE! SUBMISSION DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO DEC 14TH @ MIDNIGHT! Also, keep an eye on this site for information about additional submission cycles!

Everyone has a dream, whether it's an achievement or goal, an in the moment fantasy, or even just a dream that you had last night! Whatever your dream may be, we'd like to help you tell your story, in comic form! Debut Comics is happy to announce 40 Winks, an anthology about dreams. It's our follow up to our introductory anthology, 16 Debut!

We're looking for interesting and unique concept submissions that will eventually become a 1-10 page comic. Each comic will be assisted in production in terms of us helping you with time management, periodical feedback via a jury panel, and hosting the finished anthology on a free website, to be available for a minimum of one year. If you're interested, we'd love to hear from you! From hobbyists to professionals, let's work together and achieve our dreams, one page at a time!

Submissions are $5.00CAN (100% of all money goes directly back into the project), and are due by November 30th, 2014, midnight. Please email submissions to contact@16debut.com. Further details about Debut Comics and 40 Winks can be found in the documents below.

Dream on, Artists!

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Shannon and Anthony will be at Hal-con 2013 in a couple of weeks! It's particularly exciting because Hal-con 2012 was the birthplace of the concept for 16 Debut, so we're very happy to return. We're on the first floor in the artist section this year, so keep an eye out for the logo and say hi!

Until then!
