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.

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