Valiant Offers Portfolio Reviews for Comic Writers
It’s rare enough any established comic publisher is willing to look at portfolios these days, let alone for writers! That work is harder to judge quickly, and it’s seen as easier to be a writer than an artist, so more fans tend to give it a go, which means a smaller percentage of good stuff to find.
With a stated aim “to assist aspiring comic book creators and discover new voices for future projects”, Valiant is offering portfolio reviews for aspiring writers via virtual one-on-one ten-minute sessions with their editors Heather Antos or Lysa Hawkins. However, there’s a big catch — they won’t look at scripts, only existing comic pages, so you’ll have to have previously published (or at least created) work.
Twenty people will be chosen for reviews on September 10 or 11. To be chosen,
Email your submission to PortfolioReview@valiantentertainment.com
Subject line: Name, Discipline, Available Date
Subject line example: Colin King, Writer, September 10th & 11th
Please note: Submissions should be no more than 20 comic pages, plus a credits/contact page. This can be a one-shot, combination of various scenes, or short stories. Do NOT submit any scripts or pitches. They will be deleted immediately. Only previously published comics may be submitted (self-published is okay).
These are due September 3 (this coming Thursday).
