Get your comic book pitches ready; Oni Press is on the hunt for new talent!
Publisher Oni Press announced that for May 2015 they’ll be accepting both submissions and pitches electronically. The call is open to all writers, artists, cartoonists, and colorists seeking to publish their work with Oni Press.
Per the press release, Editor-in-Chief James Lucas Jones states that they “are on the hunt for new stories from new creators, featuring characters that reflect the diversity of the world around us. Oni Press has always valued content and execution, and we are looking for creators and projects that can support our goal to publish excellent, varied, and original work.”
On her personal Twitter account, Ari Yarwood shared that she especially hopes to see comic pitches with trans characters written by tran people.
Also, very specific callout here — I would love to see some comic pitches about trans characters that are written by trans folk. PITCH ME.

If you’re interested, don’t submit just yet; details on the process, including where to send your submissions, will be revealed in May.
Oni Press made news earlier this month with their announcement of the promotion of three new editors, Charlie Chu, Robin Herrera, and Ari Yarwood. The company is known for titles such as Princess Ugg, The Life After, Letter 44, and Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Seconds.
