Submissions:

We are currently looking for more comic strips and panels for
Funnies Extra!

-Funnies Extra is weekly and full-color. All strips must be colored for Funnies Extra.
Submissions can be Black & White though.

-We are looking to expand soon and we will be looking for as many as 16 more comic strips
or panels.

-We don’t take politically-divisive strips. In other words – no ‘left’ or ‘right’ issues.

-We don’t take strips that rely on a story-line either. They can have a story line, but they
must be able to stand alone as a strip as well.

-All un-syndicated strips will go through Ink Bottle Syndicate.

-Yes, we do consider syndicated strips
and those will stay with your syndicate.

-If your strip gets into Funnies Extra, you will be paid for each location based on circulation,
so if we get 100 Funnies Extra papers going, you will be paid for 100 separate papers.

-We are continuously looking for strips to be in the Cartoonists Spotlight too. Those strips
will run for one to two months at a time and cartoonists will be paid for all papers that run
their strips.

-Ink Bottle will promote all strips to regular daily and weekly newspapers that go into
Funnies Extra through Ink Bottle Syndicate. That will not be a quick process though, as this
takes all of my time at the moment. However, several strips have already been picked up by
regular newspapers.

-Ink bottle contracts are very similar to the “real” syndicate contracts except they are non-
exclusive and can be cancelled at any time with a 30 day notice.
