The Great Command Meant Submissions

“Go forth and do…”

“Required by law…”

“Brush your teeth!”

Every day we are bombarded with a host of commands. We give them, receive them, and are forced to interpret what they mean instantaneously.

But do we ever get a chance to reflect? To truly understand what a command is, and what it means? And if we had another chance, would we say something different? Do something different?

Would you rewrite the Preamble to the Constitution? Or the Bill of Rights? The Ten Commandments or Ninety-Five Theses? Or would you more fully explore what commands have meant in your life, and how they help create a world filled with wonder?

Helpful Hints

  • Originality

We love biopics. We love superhero stories. We love alternate histories There can be a place for them here. But we won’t be publishing a book only of one select genre. Try and discover your own original take on the prompt, it will help your submission!

  • Being Unpublished can actually be a bonus!

We love working with both established and new creators. Do not be afraid of submitting if you’ve never worked with anyone before.

  • Be careful with Tie-Ins

Tie-Ins are defined by us as stories that are part of a larger universe/story/IP of your own. While we may accept concepts and pitches that are Tie-Ins, bear in mind that your submission is supposed to stand alone. This is not supposed to be a prologue to your comic, but rather a self-contained story.

  • Talk with us and others.

If you want more info, please come join us on Facebook. If you have an idea, please talk with us. This group, and this anthology are designed to help you explore what your story means to you. Do not be afraid of it.
