The Poe Project
The objective of this project is to recreate Poe’s stories and poems as short comics. We want to have a fresh take on each of these stories, and would like to see some genre crossing. For instance, it might be fun to reimagine Tell-Tale Heart as a sci-fi story involving robots, or The Masque of the Red Death as a purely steampunk story. Basically, we want creative ideas to tell these stories, while making them new and different.
Each story should be told in 4-8 pages (would consider less for some of the poems). Each story and poem would be collected into an anthology of around 100 pages.
Each artist will need to submit a portfolio that should include sequentials. We are looking for a variety of art styles, that will fit different genres of storytelling. If selected, we will attempt to pair you with a story that will fit your style of artwork. Once accepted, and the artist is paired with a script, a deadline will be set for final lineart and colors.
We have plenty of writers, but now we need So anyone interested can reply here, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
