A Call to Mini-Comic Arms!
The Mini-Comics Media Invasion Is On

So you make a mini-comic and you'd like more people to see your work. You want to get your book into people's hands but the stores aren't stocking, the media is ignoring, and it's a long, long distance between you and any potential customers? And you can't submit your work to the Isotope Award for Excellence in Mini-Comics this year?

What's a mini-comic creator to do? You're going to invade the pro-minis media!

Helen Parson's utterly creepy and absolutely cool mini-comic Strawberry Ghost was featured this week in The Hustler by Jai Nitz... and yours can be too! Column after column Xeric grant awarded creator Jai asks mini-comic creators to send their minis in for review, and column after column Jai writes "no minis this week." Well no more, my mini-comic making amigos, because instead Jai's going to be writing about your mini-comic! And if getting your book the attention that the thousands of daily readers The Pulse receives isn't enough for you, there's also Isotope Award judge Jason McNamara's regular PopImage column looking for new creators to profile. And that means you, people!

This is a call to mini-comic arms! It's time to get off your ass and go get yourself some mini-comic love just like Helen Parson did with Strawberry Ghost. Today, not tomorrow, you're going to take two copies of your mini and mail one to Jai and one to Jason. It's time to invade that media and get that mini-comic glory!

Click here to read The Hustler featuring Strawberry Ghost and get the mailing address of Jai Nitz.

Click here to read PopImage's Can't You Hear Me Knocking and get the mailing address of Jason McNamara.

And if you still haven't mailed in your submission for the Isotope Award for Excellence in Mini-Comics you've only got six days left. You can't win if you don't submit and time is running out. Get those submissions in!
