Published writer looking for a penciller

Hi. I'm a published comic book writer and I'm looking for a kick @ss comic book penciller for a six-page pitch to submit to publishers. Bonus points if ink your own work.

WHO AM I? I wrote Funko Ghostbusters for IDW, as well as several stories for DreamWorks Animation: Shrek, Megamind, Puss-in-Boots, and Kung Fun Panda. I also wrote an original fantasy miniseries, called The Goblin Chronicles. Go to to see some of my stories.

WHO AM I LOOKING FOR: Someone with a style like Steve Dillon (Preacher) would be perfect. Iím looking for someone with the talent, motivation, and discipline to be a published artist, but just hasnít been discovered yet Ö someone whoís been previously published works, too. NOTE: if your art isnít as good comic books being sold in comic book stores (or pretty darn close), publishers will not be interested. Having been a Submissions Editor in the past, I know a pitch lives or dies by its art.

You should also be able to commit to 1-2 penciled pages a week if the book is going to be published. If you canít, the book will take forever to make, so please, only apply if you can turnaround pages weekly.

FUNDING: In short, Kickstarter. If youíre looking to make a lot of money in comics, chances are, you wonít (writers especially). For me, comics are my passion project. I love comics and want to keep writing them, but couldnít pay my bills if I funded my own books. That being the case, I cannot fund the 6-page pitch, but should a publisher be interested in printing the book, funding will come from a successful Kickstarter campaign, which would also include payment for the six pages from the pitch. Iím not going to pay myself from the Kickstarter money. This is a labor of love for me, so everything goes towards making the book.

SHORT DESCRIPTION: An over-the-top, NSW comedy thatís like a buddy film featuring Jaime Lannister and Deadpool in Hyboria.

SETTING: The story takes place in a desert setting and that has more humans than monsters. The world is not one large desert, itís just locale for the first story arc. Donít get me wrong, there will be monsters, gods, and other fun stuff to draw, too.

FORMAT: A full-color, three-issue miniseries.

AUDIENCE: Adults (contains expletives and graphic violence, but no nudity)

CONTACT: If you are interested, please send a link to your work:

Thank you!
