How To Submit to The Best American Comics Series

If you are a comic creator looking to submit your comics to this prestigious anthology, the window is now open for the 2015 volume is open from now until August 31, 2014. Here’s more about submissions guidelines from this year’s issue:

Printed submissions can be sent to the address below. Digital submissions can be made in the form of a PDF of the comics published in the eligibility window with each comic labeled with the exact date it was published online. Better yet, you might make a sub-selection of what you consider your best strips from the year or send a self-contained continuity, as long as it appeared in the eligibility period.

Comics critic Bill Kartalopoulos will edit the volume. You can read more about his work at this link.
