Last Chance For Fame As A Rising Graphic-Novel Artist

The train to fame at future ComicCon conventions -- the ride includes groupies dressed as the characters you've created -- is leaving the station, and there's only one last chance to get on board.

The Houston Press is looking for a young, local fan of graphic novels who's always hoped to break into the business. By "young" we just mean who's looking for a break, which is pretty broad. By "local" we do mean the Houston area, though, which isn't so broad.

We're putting together a package for a future cover story and we'd like to work with a local artist to do it. You'll get paid, of course.

Send a sample of your work to [email protected], but do it quickly -- we've already gotten a good response from our first call for entries, and the deadline is Friday.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
