Submissions

At ComX Studio, we are seeking to showcase outstanding Australian talent, both writers and artists alike. If you’re on this page, you’re likely interested in showing us your work, so thank you! Your interest in wanting to work with us is much appreciated.

Much like any Publisher, we screen every submission, with the general guidelines below. We screen creations by hand, please read our guidelines before submitting. Good luck!

On Submissions

ComX Studio only publishes creator-owned material. We do not bind creators in contracts, as we are only interested in publishing original content. You, the creator, would retain all rights for all intellectual property and the story itself.

Please do not submit any work that utilises already-existing characters, whether they’re ComX Studio’s creator’s characters or other publishers’ characters. We reserve the right to automatically decline for these cases.

We are neither looking for any specific genre of comic book nor a specific style of art. We are looking for comics that are written and drawn well. We look for people who are dedicated and can meet deadlines.

ComX Studio owns no intellectual property. You can be assured that your  samples or projects will remain yours, regardless whether we approve it or not. ComX Studio acts as publisher only, publishing creator-owned material.

We do not pay page rates.

How ComX Studio Makes Money

Much like any publisher, ComX Studios needs to make money for our continued operations. As we don’t pay page rates, ComX Studios takes a percentage off the book’s sales.

It is the responsibility of the creators to determine the division of the royalties and sales between members of their creative team. ComX Studios bears no responsibility over such division.

Things often change from proposal to the printed page. We reserve the right to change the intended title of your work, subject for your approval, if it is awkward or offensive.

If your logo is unreadable or unwieldly, we may suggest changing it during the production stage to maximise commercial appeal. We reiterate that no changes will be made without creator approval.

ComX Studio does not accept works that contain offensive, abusive, vulgar, racist, threatening or harassing content, personal attacks of any kind, or offensive terms that target specific individuals or groups. 

Proposal Requirements

When sending your proposal, we suggest sending a brief, typed cover letter that summarises your project and your previous work, if relevant. We appreciate if you can link any of your past portfolio to cross reference your credentials.

Please include contact information (name, e-mail address, address and phone number) clearly printed on the top of the page. Submissions are responded to via official e-mail only, coming from our official webmail.

Submit your works to: [email protected]

Your submission should include a one-page synopsis of the overall story arc. Tell us what sets your story apart from other comics and your plans for the comics if we become your publisher. A few guide questions include:

  • Who do you believe is the target audience?
  • Do you see it as a full colour or a black-and-white book?
  • A miniseries, ongoing series, a prestige book, an original graphic novel, or part of the anthology series?

The creative team in your pitch is the one we expect to see working on the project. If the artist you pitched with leaves the team, you will need to re-submit your proposal with the new creative team line-up. If you are working with multiple artists,  each artist needs to submit a sample with the submission.

While we are seeking projects with established teams, we will accept proposals. Please do not send storyboards, scripts, notes, or manuscripts—anything other than a proposal that meets the above specifications.

We will put inking, pencilling, lettering, or colouring samples digitally in a database. These will be kept on file and you may be contacted when the occasion potential partnership or collaboration could be made with a writer.
