ComixTribe Seeks Six-Word Stories for Chum


ComixTribe is betting a lot on their new series Chum. The work brings together Sami Kivela and Ryan K Lindsay for a new take on the noir style. Prior to the first issue's release though, ComixTribe is looking for six-word "Surf Noir" stories. So far, such stories have been submitted by the likes of Ed Brisson, Christopher Sebela, Duane Sqierczynski and more.

"Ryan had the crazy idea to reach out to fellow comic writers and request dark, beach-themed stories to include as backmatter in the book. The catch? Each story was to be exactly six words long," said publisher Tyler James. "I knew they did things strange down under in Ryan's native Australia, but it turns out the stories coming in are pretty awesome."

ComixTribe has already received over 100 six word surf noir tale submissions. While the stories have already been selected for Chum #1, they are still open to submissions for stories that will see print in issues #2 & #3. Intrepid writers can submit their stories here. Full press release below.
