Not really much else to add to this story, so here’s the press release:
Viper Comics is Looking for a Brand New Webcomic
September 19, 2006 ' Viper Comics has announced they will now be accepting open submissions for a webcomic to join the company's existing strips You'll Have That and The Horrible Pirates.
'Viper is always on the lookout for the newest talent in comics and hopefully this opportunity will allow us to showcase a great unknown to a world-wide audience,' said Viper President Jessie Garza.
Creators will need to provide sample pages/strips of their webcomic (with finished art) and a full pitch regarding the characters and content. Only submissions from complete creative teams will be accepted. All submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You'll Have That is a comic-strip about a young married couple updated every weekday. It has received one print collection with a second due in December.
The Horrible Pirates launched in late 2005 and has since been thrilling readers with the adventures of the world's nastiest pirate crew and their evil monkey rivals. A print collection of the weekly comic is expected for 2007.
So what’re you waiting for? Submit your heinously overlooked webcomic today! I know I already did.
