Can you believe it? Our centennial! Join us for the biggest, bang-bangiest theme-free issue yet!
NOTE #1: Our regular issues have text limits of 25,000 words and art limits of ten images without speech bubbles. But because this is a December big bang, you can write, draw, or make comics as long as you like!
NOTE #2: The main cover for this issue is going to be a collage of several individual covers, which will each get showcased as standalone pieces! Want to contribute one? Shoot us an email at email@example.com to let us know you’re interested, and we’ll share the specifics.
