DARK HOUSE is our exciting new anthology series featuring stories and art by new and emerging talent from the UK and beyond. We release new issues regularly and these will also be available to purchase online and in various comic book stores throughout the UK.

If you are interested in submitting work please bear in mind the following:

  • The featured stories and pin ups should be twilight zone-esque.
  • The art work must be black and white. You might have a great coloured piece, but if it doesn’t suit black and white printing we won’t be doing you, or us, any favours and it will have to be rejected.
  • We only accept completed stories up to six pages long.
  • Pinups are, of course, limited to one page.
  • We may post your work online or print it or both.
  • We do not pay for any submissions and we don’t accept payment in exchange for guaranteed space in a given issue.
  • Any money that we make will be put into securing the future of the Dark House Anthology series.
  • You are free to send your work to other publishers. We don’t claim any ownership of your work.
  • As a publisher of alternative comics, we welcome stories of an adult nature but we will not entertain submissions that include pornography, extreme violence or hate speech.

The publication is standard American comic book size. To send in a story or pinup, attach it to an e-mail with information about yourself. Please title the e-mail either story or pinup. We accept most file types. For stories, we prefer a print ready PDF, but if you can’t produce them, make sure that your files are named sensibly. For large files,we suggest using a file transfer site such as Dropbox.
