Comic Fury Zine is now accepting applications for Summer 2022! This zine is SAFE FOR WORK, and as such, all comics should be relatively tame (no nudity, no cursing, minimal violence-you get the idea. Like fights are okay, but no blood or gore).

All Applications must fit the zine's theme:
IN DREAMS

How to Apply Video:



Zine Application Rules—Deadline for application is April 22, 2022

Your submission must fit the theme to be accepted. This is to help create a cohesive zine. To be fair and non-discriminatory, Comic Fury Zine (CFZ) accepts applications on a first come, first served basis. Details below.





Cover Contest Rules—Deadline for Cover Submissions is April 22, 2022




Creator Quotes—Deadline May 1, 2022

Guidelines: keep it either art related or ComicFury related (or both). No hate-mongering: it doesn't serve any purpose. Keep it civil and steer clear of politics. Nothing will drain the fun out of a community project faster than politics o_O




***SPLASH PAGE INFORMATION

We require a commitment of 5 or more characters for approval of a splash page.
Serious applicants only! Please read below for explanation.




Can't wait to see what you all come up with :D

@Zaten

Hey, if you want to be a back up, that's cool! You know the drill: we only need thumbnails at this point, so aside from brainstorming a story, we don't require a lot of work up front (unless the artist wants to get things done, which is totally understandable).

Back-ups will know by April 23 if they're going to be in the zine proper, as we're not accepting applications following the deadline. Anyone who's signed up as back up that is not able to be in the published zine is welcome to complete their comic and have their pages shared as "bonus" comics on our website (and of course, they can share their work however, where ever they like). We'll advertise all bonus material in the published zine, but readers will have to go to the CFZ website to read it. All comics are linked to their respective artist's/comic.

This is voluntary: if someone signed up as back up, but there's no space for them in the zine and they DON'T want to finish their pages and be featured on the website, we're happy to abide by the artist's wishes.

Let me know if that doesn't make sense everyone XD I'm in a bit of a brain fog right now.

I don't think there are too many details :D

Sometimes the cover is more minimalist, sometimes it's more detailed. We usually leave the amount of detail up to the contestants :3 The covers reflect the artists here :)

The voting is held here on the forums, too! (Which means, it's the CF community ultimately picks the cover.)

Just a quick reminder: tomorrow's the last day for applications :D

We need 3 more people interested in the splash page to green light it! Three more characters. Comment here, or send us an e-mail if you'd like to commit to a character.

After the deadline, I'll announce here if we got enough interest (and message anyone who reached out to let them know the status).



OH! And Happy Earth Day tomorrow! Every day should be Earth Day, but especially tomorrow. I dunno where I'm going with that. I just wanted to say it.
