Holy opportunity, Batman! Just in time for the second Denver Comic Con, Westword will publish its first Comics issue on May 30, 2013 -- and we want you to be a part of it. We're accepting submissions from any Colorado artist who'd like to create a cartoon about life in the Mile High City, and we'll be giving cash prizes to those who create our favorite pieces.

And the best part? The winning cartoonists will find their pieces printed in our first Comics issue.

Continue reading for more details about the contest -- including prize money and sizing options. But fair warning: The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. today.

shit , really - though it was the 15th?


Are stick figures accepted ?

I am a horrible artist BUT am able to produce quality 'stick-figures', w/o resorting to ANY 'poop jokes' in the dialog . I do a '1-Legged' stick-man of myself that will amaze, while offending the holy hell out of you !
