At this time, White Lightning Productions is reviewing submissions for webcomics, digital download comics, and graphic novels. We are also looking for artists for various projects.
*** WHAT TO SUBMIT ***
PLEASE DON'T SEND ATTACHMENTS IN YOUR FIRST EMAIL. WLP's home office is on low-end DSL, so we'd prefer not to have our email client tied up for hours or even days waiting on your 200-page document to finish downloading. A handful of sample images are acceptable; also, you could provide an URL for a website where we can review your work in our own time.
WLP will only consider *COMPLETED* artwork for print publication. We do NOT accept scripts, sample pencils or uncompleted pages. For digital publication we will consider incomplete work for acceptance, but we won't post incomplete work for sale.
All comic art must be proportional to the standard Modern Age comic size (6 5-8" X 10 1/4"). Graphic novels and collections must be a minimum 96 pages in length and must have all artwork completed before sending to WLP. WLP will not hire inkers, toners, or any other freelance personnel for any purpose besides coloring cover art.
WLP will edit your work for spelling and re-letter it if your lettering is not up to par. Any additional editorial changes will be discussed between creator and editor; however, WLP takes a hands-off approach to all editorial decisions.
WLP is looking for the following types of content:
WLP will AUTOMATICALLY REJECT any of the following material, on sight:
How to Submit Your Work
The submission must consist of the following:
PAYMENT IF ACCEPTED
If WLP contacts you to work on one of our in-house projects, payment will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
Creators receive 20% of all sales, wholesale and retail, that WLP makes of any graphic novel. This rate may be raised by WLP if sales justify it. In addition, the creator will receive fifty copies of each printing of the book.
Digital download comics
All sales of digital downloadable comics are split thus: 50% - artist; 33% - scriptwriter (or colorist if one is required); 17% - WLP (for credit card processing, web hosting, and other expenses). All digital comics are also optioned to WLP for future graphic novel release, with payment terms as above.
WLP will host webcomics with some advertising added to help defray costs of web hosting and maintenance. The creator may also add advertising links if he or she wishes. At the creator's option WLP will also accept donations for the webcomic on the same basis as digital downloadable comics. Other offers, such as offering art commissions, may be arranged with WLP, with WLP retaining only a modest sum to cover costs of credit card transactions.
CONDITIONS OF ACCEPTANCE
WLP will schedule release of your work according to our financial situation and our schedule. It may take some time to
DO NOT ASK FOR UPDATES OR CONFIRMATION OF RECIEPT OF SUBMISSIONS. We will contact YOU once your submission has been reviewed. If you have not heard from us within three months, it is safe to assume that WLP won't be accepting your submission.
