Oh Hey, guys and girls…
A lot of you will know me.
Those who don’t, my name is Matt Garvey and I am a comic writer from the UK.
I self-publish my own comics and this year so far, I have managed to put out five individual issues and a trade of one of those titles….
You can see samples of my comics here: mattgarvey.co.uk
I am planning for 2019 being my most productive year to date…I hopes.
As the title suggests, it is a paying gig… It is not a page rate either, but a flat fee per issue.
It is a fair amount (I think so, anyway) that will allow you to work on this around other better paying gigs you might have. You will also (rightly so) get equal 50% creator ownership of the comic and a share of any profits that are made.
Basically, If I am able to sell it to a decent publisher, we’ll split the profits.
HOWEVER, what I am looking for more than anything is a partner and a collaborator.
I am planning this to be a four issue miniseries, so I need someone who is going to stick around and work with me…not just do one issue to make some quick money and leave the team.
All four issues must get done in 2019…
What is the comic about I hear you say?
Sorry, can’t tell you, it is a secret…
What type of artist style am I looking for?
If I’m honest, I am open to anything…except for anime style…sorry, it’s not what I am looking for.
If you would like to work with me and want to know more, I’d love for you to post some samples of your work in this thread, or send me a direct message here (or via my site https://www.mattgarvey.co.uk/contact ) that you are interested with a link to your samples, so that I can explain the terms privately.
Then if you happy with the payment and terms laid out, I will pick three possible artists and will ask each to do a test page from the script.
Based on those pages I will select my new partner.
Sorry about being a pain and for having “try-outs”, but because I am paying for this out of my own pocket, I need to make sure I am working with the perfect partner.
Thanks for reading my thread and I look forward to see what you guys and girls have up your sleeves.
