Magic Bullet #14

Just a heads up to all that are interested that the deadline for MAGIC BULLET #14 will be MONDAY, JANUARY 2, 2017. This issue will have a theme, so keep reading ...

Because Inauguration Day will be around the same time as this issue, we thought it would be fun to have an appropriate theme. So, the theme for this issue will be "STARS AND STRIPES." 

A quick note about the theme: Be creative! Construe it however you wish, and deliberately screw with it ... metaphorically, allegorically, literally, visually, etc. A star can certainly refer to the stars on the flag (or any flag) and all the politics that symbol might entail. But, a star can also refer to a celebrity, or a design on a shirt, or a thing in the night sky, or whatever else you can interpret it as. Ditto for stripes. "Stars and stripes" is a cliche, so, please, be free to bend it, twist it, and break it down into whatever possible meaning, political or otherwise, that you can possibly think of.

The specs and guidelines remain the same as always:

1) Live area is 9.5" x 15". There is no bleed, so even if you want your panels to appear on a black background, that background has to fit within 9.5" x 15". 

2) 300 dpi for grayscale, 600 dpi for black and white line art

3) Flattened tiff or pdf. Please, do make sure you flatten your files. Art files can be enormous when they're not flat, and if your file seems overly large, we may ask you to look at it again and resubmit it.

Information about specs and guidelines can be found at: http://magicbulletcomics.blogspot.com/p/submissions.html

As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Magic Bullet 13 NEW DEADLINE, JULY 24, 2016

Hey Everyone - I just a quick heads up that, due to travel schedules on our end things, we've pushed back Magic Bullet 13's deadline to JULY 24, 2016. So, all comics and advertising have an extra ten day or so. This should make it easier on our end, and hopefully give you all the chance to make the best comic that you can. Again, new deadline for everything is JULY 24, 2016. Thanks, and as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
