    Hey there, folks!

    Here at Slipshine, we’re currently ramping up production and readying to open submissions for the rest of the month.

    Important details! We’re looking to hire a couple of part and/or full time people, depending on their availability and skill level.

    Comics on Slipshine are typically the standard comic page dimension (6x9ish) and stories are in sets of 10-12 pages. The standard process is for new applicants to submit one short story at first, with the potential to do more stories or a long-form story if their comic does well enough. If you do get chosen to be a continuing artist, the update schedule would be every 2-3 months.

    As for samples to submit to us, we’re essentially looking for examples of sequential work, and while completed stories would be preferred o’ course, it’s not completely necessary. So long as you have comic pages to show rather than just a portfolio full of pinups.

    Also highly recommended for submissions to include nudity in some way or form, so we can see what anatomy chops ya got.

    Thus, the submission could include a completed smutty comic, or a non-smut comic and a some artistic nudes, or some such combination.

    As for the type of content we’re looking for,

    Please include a your submission package as a link or attachment, and optionally a link to your resume or portfoilio, to: slipshinesubmissions@gmail.com.

    This email is being used for submission review only, and any questions may be directed to Slipshine’s ask box!

    Submission deadline is June 30! Get crackin!

    reblogging since I have added lots of info to the original post, answering all the big questions we got in the askbox.

    Reminder tomorrow is the last day to send in submissions.

High time for an update, eh? Well, while I admit the hiatus from the comic has gone on a bit long, be assured I haven’t been resting on my laurels. Progress on the book has been going well, especially now that the most elaborate part of it, the IAP comics, are now finished! You’ll be able to read them when the books are out, or you can read them right now on Slipshine… or if you’re a Kickstarter backer! So check your messages if you haven’t lately. The next big things I need to work on for the book are the back cover and the book-exclusive comic, which was the stretch-goal reward. But before I get to those, y’know what I’d like to do? I’d like to get started on Chapter 5 already. So stay tuned, folks. -Jersh

    Anonymous said: When will you be sending acceptance/rejection emails?

    Admittedly I didn’t do a great job getting back to everyone when we had open submissions in the past. But now that I have a bit of help, we should be sending out form-rejection letters at the very least. As to when we’ll let people know, it shouldn’t be to long after the deadline on the 30th.

    Anonymous said: Hey, just to clarify--if we're making a new short story just to apply to Slipshine, can that story be less than 10-12 pages?

    Yes, 10-12 is more or less the average size or our comic chapters. And also the general limit, as that’s what we’re budgeted for. But if you’re more interested in doing smaller chapters or even self-contained one-pagers, that will work too.

    projectzuel said: I saw the 6x9 size for comic submissions and was wondering if this is just a general ratio guideline. I mean, as long as I drew the pages at 12x18 inch size they can be scaled down right?

    The 6x9 ratio is more a guideline than a rule. It’s just what most of the Slipshine artists are used to, so that’s usually what we publish. But WoC does strip-format pages for Moon Over June and I myself have switched to square pages for my comics.

    Basically, as long as you put the right amount of work into it!

    univers-hole said: Does Slipshine own the comics the creators make, or do you just have the exclusive online publishing rights? What rights do creators own and what rights does Slipshine own?

    Good question! Slipshine does get some rights to your work, but it is the exclusive digital publishing rights only. We do not get rights to your ip… nor the rights to print publishing, as it will still be a while before we can add book printing to our repertoire.

    Specifically, digital publishing rights mean no submitting the same comics you submit to Slipshine to other websites, and we get first shot at PDFs and other eBooks.
