This is a rarity… a publisher ASKING for pitches. Moonstone is looking for ideas on what to do with Captain Action, a 60s doll whose gimmick was that you could buy costumes for him of other heroes.
Captain Action, that master of disguise IDEAL action figure from the late 1960’s, returns!
Back in the day, CAP could disguise himself as Superman, Batman, Captain America, the Lone Ranger, etc! Original packaged outfits and such have been going for big bucks in the collector’s market for decades! (Of course, he was also a Gil Kane DC comic, and there was a series of figures and outfits released by Praying Mantis a decade ago.)
Moonstone wants to give CAP his due in comics! We’re looking for proposals of no more than two pages. The premise is entirely up to you!
Create a NEW “back story” as well as set CAP on a course for new adventures! We’re looking for that one GREAT IDEA, and we know it’s out there! (Please remember that CAP is a licensed property, and as such, if approved, would be considered “work for hire”.)
All proposals will be subject to review. You can e-mail proposals to email@example.com.
Note that this is wide open, since all there seems to be to the request is the need to use the (pretty generic) name, but that they’ll own whatever genius concept you come up with. Still, it’s an opportunity for the aspiring to demonstrate their creativity.
