FQP are pleased to announce that from today, June 3rd to August 31st they are open to new scripts.
FQP titles FutureQuake and Something Wicked are two premiere level titles with a focus on new talent & developing talent and a proven track record in help new creatives hone their skills. Scripts are being welcomed for both titles- script length of ideally 4-6 pages with a ‘twist’ in the tail.
The 2000 AD fanzines Dogbreath & Zarjaz are still open to scripts so there is room for writers of all levels to contribute.
Note that all scripts will be read in the order received and only short stories are being sought. FQP do not publish serials or complete graphic novels.
If accepted, writers will be informed of the next steps towards getting the script commissioned and turned into a comic strip.
Currently both titles can accommodate around 40 strips a year, so it may be that scripts have a significant delay between acceptance and commission. If that is an issue to you, keep in touch with editorial to see where you are in the lists.
Send all script submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and good luck.
And the reduced price should help you digital readers to keep up. Remember that the best way to experience FutureQuake is to read a printed copy – these books are specially designed to enhance your experience.
Print copies have been leaving FQP all week (seriously, all I’ve done for the last two weeks is pack envelopes) but you can get your copy from The FQP webshop!
True Believers 2020 is this Saturday, at the Jury’s Inn in Cheltenham. Tickets look to be £8.00 in advance and £10.00 on the day.
Appearing this year, for the first time – FQP! Yep, your favourite small press comics will be making the hazardous trip along the M5 to Cheltenham for the very first time, bringing visitors copies of FutureQuake, something Wicked, Dogbreath, Zarjaz and Neroy Sphinx!
But wait, that’s not all – scanning through the list of attendees you can also find:
The Awesome comics podcast folk,
Steve Sims – (who produces the Beast Huntin’ Battle Badgers comics – you have to see these to believe just how good they are),
Big Punch studios (That’s probably going to be Jon, off of Afterlife Inc),
Dave Broughton (with new Shaman Kane, I believe),
Disconnected Press (You ‘do’ have a copy of Sentient Zombie Space Pigs, right?)
Gustffo Vargas – His comics are just incredible.
Nick Bryan and finally
Timebomb comics – Some lovely lettering on their books…
Pull up a stool and prepare to look at your cards – don’t mind the chill in the air or the whispering behind you. Pay no attention to the voices urging you to leave; you know your place is here, with us. Something Wicked this way comes for 2019.
80 pages for a mere £6.50.
