Comic serials

Each year The School Magazine runs at least two comic serials or graphic novellas in each issue of the magazine. We publish fantasy, humour, folktales, historical drama, sci-fi and a mixture of these genres. Our readers love humour and are in the 8-12 year-old reading age range, so material must be appropriate and appeal to readers across this age range.

Comic serial submissions
 for 2018 are now closed.

Comic serials can be:

  • a single-page serial in ten parts OR
  • a two-page serial in ten parts.

Interested comic serial creators should submit hard copies only of:

  • A written synopsis of the comic serial, including episode breakdowns. (Rough art to explain key points can be incorporated.)
  • Episode 1 to finished art stage
  • Character sheet with rough or finished art, introducing key characters.

Successful creators will need to complete the entire work by an agreed date in December or January.
