So we’ve been talking about this for some time now….and we’re working on actually making it a reality!!!  The goal is to create a book with about 10-15 short stories from Comic Book Sunday! members that are about 8-10 pages each.  Jim Higgins of Meltdown University as well having worked as an editor at DC will be editing the book so all pitches will be going to him.  More details regarding that will be coming out through the CBS! group pages and emails.

We’re looking at a couple of ways to actually publish the book as well as distribute it.  We are definitely looking to actually print a book but we’re also looking at the possibility of releasing each story digitally prior to the final collection.  Right now a poll is up whether to make the book “Themed” (such as all sci-fi or horror stories) or to make it “Non-Themed” but have some sort of guidelines with submissions.  Voice your opinion and let’s see what we all think sounds best!!!  Stay tuned as we move this forward!

    Great news on creating a CBS comic! We have a lot of wonderful talents to make this a very cool book.

    Questions. As an editor on an anthology comic book I’m bringing up what we deal with at Monsterverse.

    Will CBS be supplying artists for the writers and their stories?

    Or should a writer be expected to bring an artist with the story?

    How does ownership work? I assume the creators own the stories with a limited publishing agreement with CBS?

    Will it be print or digital distribution or both?

      These are things that are being considered but we’ll either team up artists and writers or writers can bring their own artists. Ownership would be with creators UNLESS we had to shell out money to pay an artist. Than it’s a 50/50 with the artist as a work for hire. As mentioned in the post it will most likely be both digital (at least for a time) and print. There also would be a first look with CBS! due to all of the film and gaming connections. And it will most likely be a rather typical publishing agreement on how the revenue streams would work.
