Barrelhouse loves comics. Send us comics for our print issues!

Comics guidelines:
  • We're looking for completed stand-alone pieces, so no strips. If you have a continuous strip to pitch, send it as a blog submission and address it to both editors Sheila and Killian.
  • Please send completed comics. No scripts or pitches.
  • For initial submission, upload a .jpeg file that's 300 dpi. If it's accepted, we'll ask for higher res. PDFs are also fine, but make sure you can send a .jpeg or .png if accepted.
  • Since these comics will be printed, they must be formatted to fit and read well within our parameters of 5x8" (We print at 6x9" with a 1" gutter). 
  • Page limit is 8 max.
  • Important info regarding previous publishing: If you've published your piece in a comics anthology or on your website, that's totally ok. Send it along! However, we are not looking for pieces which have already been published by another lit mag.
  • Submissions take a while to read, so expect to wait up to 6 months for a response! (I appreciate your patience!)
