I've got an tiny five question interview (as part of Diamond Distribution's "Women in Comics" month--(yeah, I know, but ya take what ya can get)

< Have you seen Marvel's A Force? My first thought was, of course, was "When does Mr. T show up?">

< I don't know if I should be appalled or what considering-- Newsflash!! This female has been (at various times, some more than others)writing, pencilling, inking and lettering a comic book with all female heroes--for over fifteen years... and before me, the talented Jordi Ensign who wrote and drew Femforce in the 90's (YAY! Jordi!), plus Cynthia Martin (on Ms. Victory) and June Brigman (on Astron and Tara) for AC Comics.>

More later! -------------------------------

Hi folks, Too busy!

On a serious note, we've been having artists post art for the comic books on their blogs, myspace, facebook, and the like,.

A preview panel or two with a simple.comment along the lines of "look what I'm working on." is fine. What we don't approve of is posting entire pages or the whole story rather than select panels. I usually try to obscure, angle, watermark or crop stuff and wait till the book is ready in stores that week.

We've had a penciller whose work was posted by an inker working on the story for a current issue.. The penciller was offended by comments about his work by other people and we had delays that put us in a crisis.. This wouldn't have happened if the inker had restrained himself from posting the art until after publication.

This is my long winded way of saying: We're having an open submissions "cattle-call" on pencillers, inkers and letterers. We actively need classic comic book artists and people who can draw attractive pin-up/ cheesecake "good girl art"-style in panel-to panel continuity for the book we already publish, but we are looking at other possible types for other publications. Direct us to online graphics for samples of your work,those who email samples will be tossed. Art must be black and white line art, We only need comics art in digital form, so you can keep and/or sell your physical artwork post-publication. Don't expect payment upfront,but we are working on getting back to actively paying freelancers. If you're interested, email us at FemforceHQ @ -------------------------------
