We would like to start off by saying thank you to the over 2000 users who joined to support our inaugural competition for comic creators!
Pulsar received over 60 completed submissions for the competition and even more that just fell short of meeting entry requirements.
Prior to jumping into the winners of the contest however, we have a few announcements to make...
Pulsar's Next Comic Contest
Our next contest will officially launch on September 1st!
Please get your typewriters and HBs ready for our next comic contest.
The official contest rules & prizes will be announced between now and September 1st.
But, we will share that the new contest will have similar rules to our last contest and the theme will be:
Female Heroes (Content must be "All Ages" appropriate)
Submissions that had already been submitted to one of our previous contests will not be accepted.
New "CONCEPTS" area on Pulsar-Entertainment.com
Creators now have access to the "CONCEPTS" section of the Pulsar website.
In the Concepts section Pulsar creators can post ideas on comic concepts directly to our site in the form of a forum while including video overviews of their ideas, sample comic pages, or even pieces of scripts.
The goal of releasing a Concept is to:
Gain a pre-launch supporter base; validate an idea prior to investing time or resources.
Recruit a creative team; other creators can view your concept post and offer to join your creative efforts (other illustrators, colorists, writers, etc.).
The goal of the concepts area is to lower the barriers of entry to kicking off your comic project.
