Invitation to DYSTOPIA.

January 3, 2010

This post is aimed at potential participants as well as readers. Please spread this information to anyone who might be interested…

I’m currently editing a new comics project. The project is called DYSTOPIA and it’s a series of comic short stories on the theme of dystopia, as the name suggests. That is dystopia in a broad sense. We want the title to be open for a wide variety of genres and subjects, like science fiction, cyberpunk, horror and current political subjects.

It will be a series of 32-page books in 140x182mm format. Optional color or black & white. Each book will be one story (24-26 pgs) or it will be done as a split (flip book) between two artists if the stories are shorter. They will be made in two editions (Swedish and English) because one is not enough.

Contributors will be a mix of new and established talent, old classics and new stories. The first book was a split with Danijel Zezelj and Carol Swain and other interesting artists have shown interest as well, so artists who decide to join will be in good company.

More info at the Wormgod website. 

Dystopia is a cooperation between Wormgod (which is me and Susanne Johansson, both former editors of C’est Bon Anthology) and the Swedish Comics Association. For me, this is part of an ongoing effort to internationalise the comics scene and also to publish comics with something to say.

Here are the covers for the first split:
