Cryptophobia / Cryptophobia Submission Guidelines!
« on: 09:09:22 PM 03/17/11 »
"Cryptophobia" is a Digital Anthology Comic from Viper Comics.

About Cryptophobia:

"Cryptophobia" will be published digitally as a standard ongoing anthology. If this title proves popular, Viper Comics will elect to publish said project.

This means that "Cryptophobia" will be available for the iPhone, iPad and various other digital formats, with the possibility of collections seeing print.

The creator(s) retain all rights to their work, but it is requested that said work not appear in another publication for 18 months after it is published in "Cryptophobia". This also means that while the creator(s) may of course post previews of their story, no more than 25% of a story may be provided as a preview.

What to submit:

"Cryptophobia" will focus primarily on Cryptozoological tales. Primarily cryptological creatures, but also mythological monsters or legendary ghosts and demons.

Please keep your story around 8-10 pages, and make sure to tell us if you intend the story to be self-contained or ongoing. Ongoing tales have less of a chance of making it into the book due to constraints on space, and MUST have a definite beginning and end. No open-ended tales will be accepted.

Note that "8-10 pages" is a request. A few more or less won't get your story canned.

Stories will not be passed over simply because they stretch this genre, however these tales may be spread out through the installments of this anthology. (For example, stories about creatures such as zombies and aliens would be stretching it a bit.)

If you want to invent your own "legendary" monster and it is done well enough to be approved, be aware that these stories will be spread out through the installments as well.

Stories will need to be fully completed before being included in an installment of this project. That means it will need to be written, illustrated, inked, colored, and lettered.

However, consideration may be made if your story is purposefully presented in black and white, is silent (without dialogue or captions), etc.

There is a strict "PG-13" rating for this anthology.

How to submit:

There will be several ways to submit work to this project. We will NOT be matching up creative teams, however we will approve or pass on work submitted, enabling any given writer or artist to be theoretically approved for the book before finding their creative soulmate(s).

You are most likely to succeed if you form a creative team on your own before submitting!

Creative Team - If you are the member of a creative team... great! Submit 3-4 completed sequentials, a simple 55-60 word synopsis of pitch, and the script for review. Lettered pages are preferred, however the lettering job for submissions only needs to be easily readable.

Writer - Send simple 55-60 word synopsis of pitch, and the completed script. PDF or Microsoft Word files are preferred.

Artist - Send 2-3 pages of sequentials. Pin-ups are okay if you want to show off your illustrative muscle, but ONLY include a couple pin-ups in addition to the required 2-3 sequentials. Low-resolution JPGs are preferred.

Colorist - Send 2-3 pages showing your coloring work. Sequential pages are preferred. Low-resolution JPGs are preferred.

Lettering - Send 2-3 pages showing your lettering work. Sequential pages are required. Low-resolution JPGs are preferred.

Inking - Send 2-3 pages showing your inking work. Sequential pages are preferred. Low-resolution JPGs are preferred.

Please do not send anything other than work that effectively showcases your talent. Queries that include phrases such as "This isn't my best work, but..." are usually doomed from the start.

When sending images, please only submit low-res files. URLs to your work are also acceptable.

Please do not send images that cannot be easily seen - or cannot be easily read if they include dialogue.

If you are interested in submitting work for a cover, please send a link to your previous work on pin-ups or covers. If you have an existing work that you would like to submit for a prospective cover, please send a low-res image of that work.

Any prospective cover MUST have space to accomidate the "Cryptophobia" logo at either the top left or top right of the image.

Keep in mind that covers must also fit the theme of this anthology, IE: Cryptozoology, the supernatural, etc.

The more compelling and well-executed the image, the greater the chance it will be accepted as a prospective cover.

File Requirements:

These are the required specs for all files submitted for inclusion in the anthology. These are NOT requirements for submissions.

Final pages submitted for inclusion in the anthology must be traditional comic book format.

6.875" x 10.5" Bleed
6.625" x 10.25" Trim
6" x 9.5" Live

Files must be 300 dpi TIF files. Do NOT up-size the resolution from any number lower than 300.

The official address for submissions is!
