We've just gone LIVE on our most recent Kickstarter!The Idol is an adult, supernatural thriller which explores the power of sex! We're looking to raise funds for the artist, colorist, printing and shipping of this first issue in a four issue series! Click on the link above and pledge!
Share the link with families and friends!
The Idol is created and written by Mark Stanislawski (The Elvis Files and Mars One) with art by Gabe Rodriguez! We also have a standard cover by Donna Black and an adult cover by Raul Orte! Check them out below!
From the beginning, Good Ideas Comics has striven to produce some of the best non-super-hero comics. We think we've succeeded with books such as The Elvis Files (Crime/Supernatural/Thriller), Mars One (Sci-Fi Mystery), Lucas Hahn (Western), Mars Invades Venus (Science Fiction) and Rigor Mortis (Horror).
The reason for this is simple. Everyone has a super-hero book and we wanted to set ourselves apart. We didn't want Good Ideas Comics to be known as just another super-hero publisher.
Well, after 3 years of keeping the super-heroes away, Good Ideas Comics has decided to change its guidelines and let super-heroes be a part of our line-up! Like our other books, we are only going to publish super-hero books that we think bring something new to the genre, whether it's through the character or the execution of story.
Remember, if it's from us then it HAS to be a Good Idea!
Ideas Comics Submission Guidelines
ACCEPTING STORY-ONLY PITCHES? No. Since we want to publish comic books,
we want to see the art that will accompany the story! If you send a pitch/idea
without art, the submission will be deleted.
DO NOT PAY PAGE RATES! Good Ideas Comics wants to publish creator-owned
material. All monies, if any, for the creative team's work should be discussed
between the creative team. Good Ideas Comics will pay royalties, if any, on
a quarterly schedule. All creative team members are required to have a Paypal
account to receive any royalty distribution.
ONLY PUBLISH DIGITAL COMICS? PRINT? OR BOTH? All Good Ideas Comics are digital-first.
We currently publish digital books through DriveThru Comics, ComixCentral, Comixology
and Amazon for the Kindle.
We also have books on the ComicHaus app. Good Ideas Comics believes that digital comics
should be cheaper than paper comics and is one of the few things that we will
control if we accept your submission. Good Ideas Comics will take a small fee per
digital issue sold and the rest is paid out to the creative team as royalties. Print books are an option and
there are several ways to go about it, if you choose that you want your book in
print. These options will be discussed if we want to publish your book.
We currently sell physical books through the Good Ideas Comics Storenvy store and
DO I SEND? WHAT GENRE ARE YOU LOOKING FOR? Ideally, Good Ideas Comics would like to see a
minimum of 5 finished pages (lettered & colored, if pitching a color book),
a 1 page synopsis of the story you want to tell and the script for the first
issue. Entire package should be sent as a .pdf. You can send
the pages as a .pdf and the synopsis and script as Word or .rtf documents. Good Ideas Comics is only looking to publish
single issue stories or stories with a beginning, middle and end that span 3 or
4 issues. We won't rule out publishing a longer run but the
story really has to blow us away! We now accept
super-hero pitches! Keep in mind that there are literally dozens of
other publishers, both large and small, that publish super-hero books. What
sets your super-hero apart from all those others? Is there something within the
story or character that you think hasn’t really been attempted before? Is it truly unique?
RIGHTS DO I RETAIN? Creators retain 100% of all intellectual,
merchandising, film, television, video game, etc. rights. Good Ideas Comics will only own publishing and
distribution rights. At any time, Creators can cut ties with Good
Ideas Comics by giving us a 3 month notice in writing.
OFFER ANY PRE-PRESS OR PRODUCTION SERVICES? Good Ideas Comics will make sure the size
dimensions of the book are correct for standard comic size (7" x
10.5"). Good Ideas Comics can handle all cover layout elements (not cover
design), logo placements, pricing and barcoding (if necessary). Good Ideas Comics also offers lettering services
for $150 per issue for standard comic books. Graphic novels are priced depending
on page count.
YOU PROMOTE THE BOOKS? You are required to actively promote your title
on social media (twitter, facebook, reddit, etc.). Good Ideas Comics WILL
promote your book through our Facebook, web site and Twitter accounts and
through ads in our books both in print and digital.
I SEND THE PACKET? WHAT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS? All packets and any inquiries can be sent to
email@example.com. ALL submissions will receive a reply and the waiting
time will vary between a month and 3 months, depending on volume.
