Hello everyone! Can you believe it is already September? We are emailing you today to just remind you that you can submit your Horror Comic work throughout the entire calendar year for Ghastly Award Consideration. We are already less than 2 months away from the end of 2016 and we need your books for consideration!

 Ongoing Titles: Please try to send us a full arc for consideration, title must have released more than 4 issues in the calendar year.

• Anthology: If it has 3 stories or more it will be considered for Anthology. We also consider titles that have a different story in each issue to be an anthology.
• OGN: If it has at least 52 pages and is self contained it will be considered.
• Archival: Is it a collection of material that was released prior to 2011? If so it will be considered.
• Short Story: All short stories in submitted Anthologies will be considered. You may also submit a short story that ran in a non-horror publication.
