What counts as a comic?
Comics are sequential images typically integrated with text to create meaning. We won’t tell you what is or isn’t a comic. If you think your work qualifies as a comic, that works for us. Please keep in mind that this is an alternative comics fest, and the focus is on comics. We have this rule to encourage illustrators to make, print, and share comics.
