Welcome to the Comic-Makers-Club!


Our group focuses on comics! Making them and reading them! We are dedicated to supporting and assisting comic makers, as well as provide comic readers with plenty of new comics coming in daily!


:bulletred:I. :pointr: You may submit only once a day.

:bulletgreen:II. :pointr: We do not accept Work In Progress pieces. We also do not allow sketch comics. Your submission must be a completed page, or strip that is easy to read and needs no further edits.

:bulletblue:III. :pointr: This is a comic club, we only accept comics, and the occasional original comic character bio (in full color and only in the Character Bio section). We do not accept illustration artwork of comicbook characters; we really prefer full comic pages or comic covers. That being said, we do allow you to post advertisements (that are print ready pieces you would hang in a display window) in the Promotion folder, and pictures of your table and such from conventions in the Conventions folder.

:bulletpurple:IV. :pointr: Do not harass other members! Be supportive, this is a safe environment. Constructive criticism only, and only when requested. Harassment includes: Slandering anyone, not respecting the "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all" rule, posting hate art, spamming, generally being a jerk.

We also have a Job Posting board, for if you are looking for partners in creating a comic, and a commission page for if you are offering commissions, or seeking someone to commission.

=====More Info=====

We aren't for people who simply love comics and do a lot of fanart and illustrations from Marvel or DC... We are for small companies, publishers, groups, and individuals who want to get their comics out there. We want to help those who have an idea for a comic, but lack the ability to draw, as well as those who can draw but need help with an idea. We want to help set up websites and edit comics for members, help them be seen at conventions and cost contests to keep people inspired!

If you have any comments, questions, or concerns, feel free to contact RavynCrescent via Note.

We wanted to take some time to explain a bit more about submissions and what the rules of our group is, so that people will be able to have a better time with it.

We're specific about what we approve and deny. It''s why we one of the are the largest Comic themed groups on Deviantart, and have so many famous/talented members. They like that we're picky... we're elite, but NOT exclusive, and what that means is that we'll accept all skill levels, so long as they follow the rules.

Regardless of notoriety or skill level, everyone is treated the same. We don't deny a submission because the artwork isn't great, nor do you accept something that breaks the rules, because it's beautifully done. Everyone starts somewhere, and no matter how big you get, rules are rules here.

More on that in another less, for this one let's move on to how to decide what gets a Yes on the submission vote.

The #1 reason we deny a submission, is because it is an illustration (a picture that is stand-alone and is not a comic) / re-coloring of someone else's work, cover design without a comic attached, etc. We are a group for comic creators, we are not a group to show off fanart of comics, unless it's done as an actual comic. We are also not a group for illustrations, even if they are illustrations of characters from your comic, we'd rather just see the comic! Let your fans go directly to you, or to an exclusive part of your site, to see the bonus illustrations.

The #2 reason we deny is because the submission is already in the group. Please double check when submitting and also check you have submitted to the correct section, this will save us all some time :)

Now, let's take a look at the sections and categories, as well as what defines them.

18+ Adults Only

Mature art is one of those "tricky" areas. 99% of the time, submissions to this category are approved, so long as they are not illustrations and fulfill the group rules and requirements. The 1% of the time we do not, is when the context seems to be glorifying rape. As sad as it is, I run into a few comics a year which promote the idea of being bigoted, racist, and just... horrible (not a single character being racist, the whole comic promotes the idea. We're fine with a character or a group being that way, that's realistic, sadly. We just deny comics promoting it as a good thing). We deny them.

The Adults Only folder is comics, comic pages, and covers that has sexual content, enough to warrant an adult content warning from Deviantart, and does not violate DA's forbidden content rules.

Gore and violence are credited as mature content on DeviantArt, but we do not require them to be submitted to this folder, as this folder is designed primarily for work of a sexual nature. You may submit your entire comic here if it has adult content, even if most of the pages are "clean".


Animated comics can be full animations, animated "game" comics such as Homestuck, or even comics done in Flash or a similar program which allows readers to click within the animation itself to change the page. We allow animated promotional material as well within this folder, and all Flash content should go here.

Literature. We allow stories and scripts written by comic authors to be submitted.

The Game: Level 3 Prologue by GreenMangos Arnice       A loud series of bangs startled me awake. I quickly jumped to my feet and saw Joseph looking down at me.
       “That’s where you’ve been hiding,” he scoffed and then pulled me out into the open. “Go fetch my horse,” he said and pointed across the field. I could see it in the distance, ambling around in the wild grass. “Go on, now, get to work,” he commanded and then swung his foot behind my rear and nudged me forward.
       After catching my balance, I yawned and then began a brisk walk to the animal at my own pace. I stopped halfway and turned to see if Joseph was still looking; he was, standing there with his arms folded. “Go on! Cripes, I know you heard me,” he said in his grumbly tone. I lowered my head and continued on my way.
       I don’t know why he always sent me to tend to that old horse. The beast was ancient and smelled

Character Sheets

NO FANART in this section.
People try to submit illustrations and such into this all the time, but we really want to reserve it for character bios and such! Even if the illustration is of your character, please save that as a special that can on;y be seen on your DA page or website, it doesn't belong in this group, even if it is spectacular.

People who view this section are looking to learn about a character, so that they can find new, interesting stories to read based on if they like the character.

Readers likely won't be too interested in seeing just a head, or a sketch, or even a scene. We want submissions to have enough that the person viewing it will go "wow, I want to learn more about this character" so that the viewer will read/buy the comic.

Character Sheets are not a place to stick illustrations or fanart. It is to be considered a section for Original Character Biographies, and contain full color, completed work. If your comic is not in color, use this as a rare opportunity to allow people to see the characters in color, and help them imagine that color while reading the rest of the comic.

Sketches, illustrations, fanart, and covers do not belong in this section

The convention section is for members to show off pictures from conventions they attended. We greatly want to see photographs of table/booth set ups, panels our members were involved in, and the materials they are selling/using to promote their work.

We also allow promotional materials and journals to be posted here to advertise conventions. If a member is attending one, creating an image with the conventions name, date, and location, as well as the location of their booth/table or the information on their panel is a fantastic idea and ideal for this folder.

Members may also post guides for attending a convention here, to help out other members, and tutorials for building displays.

It is not for convention exclusives, sketch covers, etc. Unless they are photographs taken while at the convention itself, or are a promotion on where to get the convention exclusive. Photos of sketch covers you are doing do not belong here, unless they are of original characters from your comic. Remember, you want to keep some things as exclusives that can only be seen by people watching your page, seeing you at conventions, or visiting your website.

Fan Comics

Fan comics are fanfiction, in comic form. These are comics which feature characters, places, events, or are based on a copyrighted universe.

The only thing that belongs in this folder is fan comics. There are plenty of groups for Marvel, DC and other publishing houses for you to post fanart and illustrations, they do not belong in this group, and will be denied. The thing to remember is the Comic Makers Club wants to see Comics!

Single Page Comics

4-Panel Koma comics, stand alone comics where a single page is all that's needed, these are perfect for this section.

Graphic Novels

Definition: A novel whose narrative is related through a combination of text and art, often in comic-strip form.
These are for comics that are text-heavy, or have a text based go-along, such as books turned into comics.

Insert Witty Phrase Here

Comedy, short comics that will eventually go into the group's webcomic, to be used for advertising and other effects. All comics submitted to this folder will be used, so only submit comedy comics you approve of being part of this project. These comics may eventually be printed into a book or put on a website, which will link to the original creator.


The Japanese Manga/ Outside-Japan Manga debate is a long one, indeed... for the sake of the folders here, we go by "style". Basically, a comic done in a manga "style" will go into the manga folder, simply because people searching for that style will look in the Manga folder, even if it is made outside of Japan. The same for someone from Japan who is doing an American style will not submit to the Manga folder, even though their comics are being made in Japan.

Memes and Expression Sheets

Expression sheets are useful tools to learn to keep a characters expressions consistent, and to help learn to draw a character repeatedly, looking the same except with different expressions. This folder is for meme comics and those expression sheets, only.

Original Character Comics

Comics using original characters, and covers for those comics. Pages must be completed, or link to the completed page/book.

Promotional Material

Print ready promotional material, such as business cards, flyers, banners, and signs. These need to be at a high level of quality, something you would send to a printer and pay to have printed and distributed.  Covers can go here, but you need to be sure the rest of the comic is linked in the authors description.


All completed tutorials can go here... From drawing tutorials, to publishing tutorials, even 'how to find an artist/writer', all tutorials are allowed here.

That's it for the folders!

I hope that clears some things up! We love seeing your art but, please, keep it to comics! You have have drawn an awesome cover for a Marvel/DC/Etc. and that's fantastic! But unless it's a cover for your own comic, or a fan comic you're doing, it doesn't belong here.
