Stumptown Comics Fest looking for Dark Horses

Its hard to break into the comic book industry. You could be an awesome artist, your last name could be Bendis, or you could have a unique take on comics like Loaded Barrel Studios (more on them tomorrow). Even if you do meet any of the above criteria, you still need to get your foot in the proverbial door to show someone that matters your work (unless you self-publish, which is an entire other story). If you're going to be in Seattle this weekend (April 26 and April 27) at the Stumptown Comics Fest, you may have a shot at Dark Horse. Scott Allie will be on hand to evaluate talent and sign two lucky individuals to create original strips to appear on MySpace Dark Horse Presents later this year. This is really a great shot to get your name and talent out there, and if you're really that good you'll be on MySpace for the whole world to see. And then maybe at the next Comic Con you'll be sitting next to Joss Whedon, Mike Mignola or Steve Niles at a panel talking about how you got your break. Dark Horse recruiting at Stumptown Comics Fest
