Thank you for your interest in submitting your work to Rocketship! We’re always on the lookout for new projects and talent, so please read our guidelines carefully before contacting us.
The Golden Rule: DO NOT SEND US MATERIAL TO DOWNLOAD.
If you break this rule we will not review your submission. If there are proposal materials send us a link to a Google Drive or Dropbox where we can view the materials without logging in. If you are an artist only send links to your online portfolio.
What we’re looking for:
- Webcomic creators who want to bring their webcomics to print. If this is you, and there is enough material to print a collected edition (usually over 100 pages of material) and you control the rights to do so, then we want to hear from you.
- Original proposals for new graphic novels that have the entire creative team attached. Please see below for the requirements.
- While we don’t typically hire artists for projects the need does occasionally arise. If you have a portfolio you would like to submit please include the link to your online portfolio for us to review and if we’ll keep it on file should there ever be a fit for a project.
What we are NOT looking for:
- Proposals from writers who do not have artists attached and pages to show. We do not pair writers with artists, you need to assemble your team prior to submission.
- Proposals that include characters or properties that aren’t yours.
- We do not accept writing samples.
- We currently do not accept coloring, inking, or lettering submissions. If this changes we will update this page.
- We do not crowdfund projects that we do not publish.
FOR WEBCOMIC CREATORS:
Please fill out all fields in the form. You can include a bit about yourself and your story but it’s not necessary, we’ll read it online. Among the services Rocketship provides to webcomic creators is reformatting and pre-press for your book, so please make sure to take the time to answer the technical questions in as much detail as possible.
FOR NEW PROPOSALS:
We require 5-10 pages of finished work to review. The more the better. By finished we mean completed, lettered pages to read, and colored if the book is going to be in color. These pages MUST be done by the same creative team who would complete the book.
Along with the pages, send us a brief, one-page summary of your story, who is on your team, and some idea of your past work. Tell us what your story is and what it’s about.
Rocketship Entertainment does not pay page rates. Rocketship pays royalties to creators and creative teams from the sales of the book. If you have a team it is up to you and your team to determine how to split profits.
Please note: you may not receive a reply if there is not interest in your work. There are many reasons why we might not take a project and we have already been getting contacted at a volume that makes it impossible to individually reply to every submission.
To the stars,
