A few years ago I tried to get an anthology off the ground called ‘Future Noir’. Set in a world similar to that of Blade Runner, we had a few submissions come in before the usual thing happened, some creators flaked out and left the submissions high and dry before they were finished.
Paul Penna and I are looking to get the anthology up and running again with the view of getting submissions of up to 10 pages finished, with art and lettering, by December of 2015 with the view of a crowd funding campaign beginning in January 2016.
Below is the Facebook group we’ve set up for the anthology.
I’m happy for any submissions or queries to be sent to my old Flux Uk email address for the moment - Fluxukcomics@gmail.com
So, what we’re looking for.
Futuristic Noir tales, be they detective stories, actioners etc, they must be sci-fi based and feature androids or augmented humans. They should have a twist. They should be original. We want big ideas, big themes, great compelling characters. Think of a mega-city and the people who inhabit it, what are their stories?
No more than 10 pages. Any more will be rejected out of hand.
Complete teams of artist and writers would be ideal. We won’t be accepting scripts. Please use the group and this post to get together and collaborate. Post your scripts and art subs here, use the forum to link up. If you’re an artist looking to jump on board, ask here. If you have a script, pitch it here and we’ll do our best to get an artist attached.
Happy to hear pitches on this forum. If you have an idea and you’re not sure if its a fit, let us know and we can chat about it.
That’s it for the moment. If you have any questions, drop us a line or reply to this post and we’ll get back to you when we can.
