Slightly later than usual, but we at Back From The Depths are once again looking for contributors for our freaky free, annual pdf horror comic, HALLOWSCREAM, so here are the submission guidelines...
Submissions should be horror orientated and must be weird or spooky to make the final cut.
We are mainly looking for completed comic strips between 1-7 pages in length. Anything already completed is far more likely to make it into the comic.
Script submissions should also preferably be around 1-7 pages in length.
Eerie illustrations and artwork along with interesting horror/comic articles, scary short stories, petrifying poems or anything just plain creepy will also be considered.
To get an idea of the sort of stuff we're after, you can download previous issues of Hallowscream here.
If you're looking to illustrate something, get in contact and we'll give you details of available scripts to see if anything suits your fancy.
We'll also consider material previously published elsewhere, as long as the contributors own the copyright.
Completed artwork can be either colour or black and white, and should preferably be A4 (21cm x 29.7cm) 300 dpi jpeg or png.
Submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
As this is a non-profit, small press publication, contributors will not be paid but they will retain copyright on any material submitted.
Scripts, articles and text submissions : Sunday 31st July 2016
Artwork : Monday 17th October 2016
Completed strips : Monday 24th October 2016.
The finished issue will be available online as a free pdf by October 31st, with a physical copy becoming available via Lulu.com, shortly afterwards. You can also keep up to date with Hallowscream news via the Facebook Page.

You could have had more than this nasty looking scrawl, but my scanner's just given up the ghost, (of Christmas Past), so it looks as if I'll be hunting for a new one in the January Sales. BAH! HUMBUG! etc;
Merry Christmas and Happy Slightly Different Year, peoplefolk!

This'll make most sense to British viewers of a certain age...Edit : Video blocked on YouTube due to a visual copyright claim, (which I thought might happen, even though I'm not profiting from it), so here's the Facebook version...
