DEADLINE EXTENDED Call for submissions: SF Weekly Comics Issue 2012

Posted By on Wed, Nov 28, 2012 at 4:03 PM


Connected in San Francisco: What's your interpretation?

This is a city of connections. Big bridges, little phones, unusual cultures. San Francisco lives for this stuff. Draw us some stories about how it all fits together.

We are looking for local artists to give us their take on this theme!

The best entries will be selected to appear in print.

Submissions should be created as true sequential art - a full story unto itself. Cartoonists are encouraged to be creative within the confines of the required dimensions. There are no restrictions on the number of panels or how you arrange them.

Be sure to work within our half- or quarter-page sizes. If you would like to do a full-page comic, please submit a proposal via email prior to producing it.


  • Submissions must be in black and white. You may propose full color, but you must demonstrate competency in this before it will be green-lighted.
  • If coloring with tones of gray, separate grays by 15 percent, i.e. 15, 30, 45, 60, 85 percent grays.
  • Grayscale images: 300 dpi.
  • Bitmapped black-and-white images: 600dpi

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
