Want to be a contributor? Are you a fan of independent comic books? Do you read comics other than Marvel and DC? Have you ever wanted to be a comic book reviewer and write news articles about your favorite titles and issues? Now is YOUR opportunity! Geekery Magazine is looking for new reporters to write articles and get published.
We would like to make this known upfront that this is NOT a paying gig. This isn’t a paying gig because Geekery Magazine doesn’t actually make money, yet. So if we aren’t paying you, what can we offer, you ask??? Since we are doing this for the love of Indies, Small Press & Creator Owned projects, we are looking for other fans like us. What we can offer you is a chance to get your news articles published if you are looking to build your portfolio, the chance to meet/talk with comic book creators, the chance to read comics before you can buy them in stores, and the possibility to get into conventions for free (press badges). In return, Geekery Magazine will continue to expand and provide our readers more content on up and coming comics.
Are you sold yet? If so, we want to hear from you. Please send us a sample comic book review so that we can review your writing/review skills and let us know what publisher or titles you’d like to review. We are looking for people that can report weekly as well as monthly. So the amount of publicity you get is completely up to you.
Email us at [email protected] if your seriously interested.
- Submitting a book for review does not guarantee the book will be reviewed by anyone on staff. We receive a lot of books and as such the reviewers have a right to choose which books to review at their discretion. A submission provides no guarantee or a review.
- Upon submitting your book for review, please let us know if it needs to be reviewed in a certain time frame. We will do our best to accommodate any requests, but as stated above, we reserve the right to publish reviews at our discretion.
- We will always provide honest reviews based on the merits of the work being reviewed. All our reviews should be taken as constructive criticism whether the review is good or bad and never intended as an attack on a character, creator, book, or publisher.
- We believe in fostering a positive environment for our reviewers and comic book fans and as such will not tolerate any comments defaming anyone involved with the site in any way. All reviews are final and as stated above should be taken as constructive criticism of the work itself and nothing else. If you disagree with a review, feel free to contact us via the message box or privately, but we have the right to keep the review posted on the site.
- We accept ALL genres of comics! Feel free to submit your book and we’ll do our best to match it with someone who specializes in the same genre as your book.
Now if you understand the review policy and want your book looked at for review, please send an email to: [email protected]
NOTE: We DO NOT PARTICIPATE in COMIC BOOK PAYOLA, meaning, we do NOT accept payments of ANY kind for reviews. If you attempt to pay us for a “good review” we will out you! Do not ask!
