Douji/Original Manga Artists

– You don’t have to speak perfect english or worry about typesetting: Our proofers and typesetter will help you out.
– Of course you don’t have to pay anything for hosting. We thought about it for some weeks now, that we would love to get other artists the chance to make their own work more public (without paying money to host it and the chance to get more reader than uploading it elsewhere; after all there are many people who enjoy reading our projects and would love to read some other artists stories while waiting for new releases)
– If you want to remove your work at some time in the future from our online reader (for whatever reason), you can do that any time
– We can upload as PDF or flash files as well (you don’t have to do it youself we can easily do it for you) and if you want even include some pages in our releases as a preview.
– If you want to release it in other languages we can help you translate it (right now we can translate it into french or german as well)

-You can also send us Oneshots, 4komas or single pages

Please send us some pages of your work or a link to them when you apply and maybe some basic informations (e.g. genre, what the story is about, how many chapters you intend to draw, if the douji/manga is completed or still ongoing). If there are any other questions feel free to send us a message or leave a comment.
