There have been some big changes going on at suddenly-in-the-news Antarctic Press, one of the older comic book publishers operating in the direct market these days.
Publisher John Dunn has stepped down and has been replaced by founder of Antarctic Press, Ben Dunn, as head of all publishing and editor-in-chief. David Furr has been named Associate Editor.
After potential legal challenges, they are renaming their new shared superhero continuity the Superverse. Previously called the Heroverse, it will include the already announced Public Domain and Jungle Comics, as well as a new anthology series, Exciting Comics, to launch in February or March 2019 — and they are taking solicitations.
They are currently looking for 8-12-page short stories or serialized stories, for both writers and artists and are accepting samples and pitches to email@example.com (put Exciting Comics in the headline).
