It means a lot when individuals contact us about a possible working relationship. Even if you're not ready yet, and just starting out in the industry, we still appreciate that you have enough respect for the Devil's Due brand to reach out to us.
There are some basic industry standards that aspring creators should go by when submitting samples. If you have done your research, you will know the customary ways to present your art in a format that is easy to view and lets us know you're serious. We don't have any specific guidelines - so research online and find out what you believe is the best, simplest way to submit your portfolio.
Rather than hand holding someone through the submission process, we find that with our limited staff, this is the best way to let the cream rise to the top so that we may choose from the best, most professional artistic talent. Eventually we would like to add a section helping guide new aspiring artists through the process, but for now this is how it goes.
We do not have a single staffer dedicated to soley handling submission emails, so thank you for your patience in waiting for a response. We try to get back to everyone, although Devil's Due is contacted daily by individuals regarding potential collaborations, creators seeking for-hire work, publishing deals, by screen writers seeking to flesh out scripts as comics, and pretty much any possible combination you can think of.
When it comes to original concepts, we're not actively seeking any, and please undserstand that at any given time Devil's Due is developing its own ideas internally. There is no guarantee that your concept will not overlap with themes similar to our own working ideas, and we do not accept responsibility if that is the case. This is why many companies don't accept unsolicited material, and why we prefer to partner with creators who are already publishing their own material or web comic, and cultivating a following. Never say never, but just know that going into the submission process.
We look forward to hearing from you, and thank you for considering Devil's Due in your quest through the jungle of comics.
