š! #33 'Misery' Open Call

After almost two years it's time again for a new open call for the š! comics anthology. Times at the kuš! office are hard. To cheer us up, we thought we'll make an issue about misery. It's better to share the pain, right? So please hit us with your most heart-wrenching and dark stories for the saddest kuš! publication ever!

Full details of participation:

- Theme: Misery 
- Page count: 4-14 
- Language: English
- Format: DIN A6, width 10.5cm × height 14.8cm
- Bleed: In case you want your comics to be full bleed make sure to add 3 mm cut off space all around the comics (in this case the width of each page should be 11.1 cm and the height 15.4 cm). Don't place texts and important details close to the page borders (Bleed explained in a graphic).
- Colors: Yes, CMYK, b/w works are also welcome
- Resolution: 300 dpi (1200 dpi for b/w works)
- File format: preferably tiff or pdf
- If we publish your comics, you'll get a hug and at least 5 free copies of the anthology
- Submit only low resolution jpgs for our consideration (but big enough to read (approximately 900 pixels in width)! The big resolution files as described above we'll ask you to send later.) Please don't send zip files, don't use google documents or wetransfer or the like, we only want preview files now!
- please include a short description of yourself and a link to your site/blog
- Deadline: 6 June 2018
- Send to komiksukonkurss@gmail.com

Additional notes: 

- After receiving your work we'll write you a confirmation e-mail within 14 days. If you don't hear from us, write us again, maybe your mail got lost or we are still crying.
- The decision what we'll publish will be made until 1 July. We'll mail you if you're in!
- We'd prefer if you don't publish the full comics on- or offline before we print it. 
- Please don't send comics which are made for a bigger format. If your comic is unreadable in A6 format, it will not be published.
- We are always happy to feature experimental approaches in storytelling and art. Don't limit yourself!
- If you have any questions, just write us. Best if you write a comment below, as other people might have the same question.
- You may cry, it's ok! 
- Previous issues of š! you can find here: komikss.lv/books/s/. If you have never seen them, it might be helpful for you to take a glimpse at some excerpts or get a previous issue to get a better feel of it.

- You can also follow us on twitter, facebook, tumblr and instagram.
