Led by Matt Dembicki, District Comics will be an online comic anthology featuring “stories about the history of Washington, D.C., from its beginnings to contemporary times.” The goal is for readers, schools, and libraries to enjoy tales about the nation’s capital.

They’re currently accepting submissions, although at least one writer or artist on the project must live in the DC area. Also, “stories must be historically based and told through a unique voice.” So no Franklin/Jefferson slash fanfic — unless you have the documents to back it up! Stories are planned to start appearing online on July 4 (how apropos).

Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm) has revealed that he is illustrating a story about the 1950 assassination attempt on Harry Truman. He also says the project will be coming in book form in the fall from Fulcrum Publishing, which makes sense; they also published Trickster, another anthology edited by Dembicki.

Brooke A. Allen (A Home for Mr.Easter) will also be contributing, and she’s posted some of her gorgeous pages in progress as well.
