CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: COMIC VIGNETTES, SHORT STORIES (ILLUSTRATED), ILLUSTRATIONS FOCUSING ON DARK OR NOIR THEMES IN POKEMON

so yesterday i mentioned looking forward to doing another artist collaboration—and this is what came to mind!  basically it’s a pokemon fan zine with a dark/creepy/noir theme.  the name “night shade” refers to a ghost-type attack which is described as follows:

“the user makes the target see a frightening mirage”.

so what i’m hoping to publish in this zine is creepy, mysterious, generally dark or twisted tales from the world of pokemon.  i’m sure we’ve all thought of what the series might be like if it were darker, or wondered about dark aspects of the pokemon world that often go unaddressed in canon.  i’m sure you’ve seen some of the various “creepypasta” about pokemon—something along those lines.  think: “the twilight zone”.

i’m looking for illustrations, illustrated short stories, and comic vignettes mostly.  i’d also be open to parody “advertisements” for pokemon world merch.  i’m hoping to feature a couple of full color pages in each zine, but for the most part i’m thinking it will be black and white/greyscale.

other details:

-large size zine (A4 8.5”x11”)

-primarily b+w/greyscale

-full color cover + 3-4 full color pages within

this will be a casual project, so if you have questions just shoot me a message or e-mail.  i’ve got some ideas myself that i’ll be working on.  i don’t have any particular deadline or publish date in mind at the moment.  but i’m pretty excited!  the combo of pokemon + creepy is deliciously fun.
