Chicago, IL — July 11, 2005 — Devil’s Due Publishing, in publishing a wide variety of comic books—from licensed to creator-owned properties to the newly revived Chaos! Comics—has never called for submissions…until now. In 2006 DDP will expand its diverse publishing schedule to include a new crop of creators never before seen under the DDP banner.
Associate Publisher and Satellite Studio Liaison, Marshall Dillon said, “We’ve always published a full gamut of material, and we’d like to build upon that diversity. While our internal focus will be on licensed properties, we want to continue to release a wide range of original concepts.”
There is no standard “DDP Deal,” as each project is worked out on a case-by-case basis with creators. DDP is seeking established talent, but that doesn’t mean a newcomer with an amazing project will be turned down. The rules of submissions (which must be adhered to) are as follows:
**Concepts must be COMPLETE comic book projects containing art and story. No separate writing or art submissions for original concepts will be accepted.
**Each submission must include a brief, one or two paragraph synopsis of the series. This must explain “the hook”Ã¢â‚¬â€the main concept of your book that makes it stand out above all others. Complete scripts with no synopsis will not be reviewed.
**Portfolio reviews for original concepts will not be formally reviewed at this year’s summer conventions, but rather we request they be mailed. Please, PHOTOCOPIES only.
**Studios and individual creators are equally welcome.
**While the DDP logo must be on the cover of each title, DDP encourages branding of partner studios.
**Mail submissions to: Devil’s Due Publishing, Creator Owned Pitches, 4619 N. Ravenswood Ave. #204, Chicago, IL 60640. (NO email submissions.)
Devil’s Due. Reminding everyone that pop culture IS our culture.
ABOUT DEVIL’S DUE PUBLISHING (DDP)
Devil’s Due Publishing was formed in 1999 as both a commercial art studio and a small press comic book publisher. DDP’s first breakout success was 2001’s revamp of G.I. JOE, returning the long-lost 1980s characters to comics. Fans bought over 100,000 copies per month, immediately propelling G.I. JOE to the top of the charts. Today, DDP’s lineup includes Army of Darkness, Hack/Slash, Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, the newly resurrected Chaos! Comics, and the Aftermath universe, an imprint featuring super-powered heroes in titles Defex, Breakdown, Blade of Kumori and Infantry.
