(October 24, 2007; New York, NY) —Zudacomics.com, the first ever web comics imprint from DC Comics, will go live on Tuesday, October 30th, 2007, it was announced today by Richard Bruning, DC Comics Creative Director, SVP.
With the launch of the site, visitors will immediately begin to shape and define the Zuda experience. Online submissions will begin, allowing aspiring web comics creators to submit their work directly to the Zuda editorial team. The Zuda web community will be invited to vote on the first ever Zudacomics.com competition, choosing one from the ten webcomics offerings. In addition, all visitors will be able to read the first ever Zudacomics.com Instant Winner, which will have been selected by Zuda editorial in preparation for the launch.
To celebrate the launch of this ground-breaking site, Ron Perazza Director, Creative Services, and Kwanza Johnson, Zuda editor, are inviting aspiring web comics creators and journalists to attend a special launch event in New York City on Tuesday, October 30. As Perazza explains in an e-mail sent to the Zuda community:
If you’re going to be in the New York City area (and are 21 years of age or older) on Launch Day (Tuesday, 10/30) then come on and join the Zuda staff for the Zuda Comics Launch Event and Live Submissions…um…Extravaganza! Face it, you can submit online any day of the week, but for this one night only, from 5:30 – 6:30 PM, Ron, Kwanza and Nika will be reviewing pitches live! Bring your best! And don’t worry, if you can’t make it at that time for the next couple of hours we’ll still have a drop box where you can leave your submission and we’ll have some laptops where you can submit “ye olde fashioned” way – digitally! Where will this magic happen? At one of the most magical places on Earth, of course.
