Most contests in the comic book business are geared toward artists. Shadowline, in partnership with Newsarama, is bucking the tide and creating a contest geared toward writers!
According to Shadowline editor, Kristen Simon, â€œIâ€™d been hoping to see a super-hero book with a strong female lead to act as a counter-point to our popular Bomb Queen series, but none were forthcoming. So I decided to come up with a contest to create a super-heroine for the 21st Century.â€
The character will be 100% creator-owned as all Image and Shadowline books are (Trademark and copyright to be shared by writer and artist). The winning entry will be featured in their own self-titled three issue mini-series to be drawn by fan-favorite artist, Franchesco! (She-Dragon, Green Lantern Corps Quarterly) and back-end profits will be split between the creators.
