I wanted to do an update on the Uzumaximum tribute project. The deadline is now March.

Uzumaximum is going to be a collection of comics and art inspired by Junji Ito and Japanese horror manga. Do you want to submit a comic? Here's the basics of what you need to know:

   *All comics must be in greyscale/black and white. No color.
   *The comics will be printed in the standard comic book format of 6x9 - although we're not settled on a printing service yet, this template will help you format your pages: ka-blam.com/printing/front/?p=…
   *All comics are subject to approval - I will be editing this project. Basically a comic needs to meet the above specifications and a minimum standard of quality.
   *Additionally the comics need to be original creations inspired by Junji Ito's work - not fan comics that lift characters, stories, or specific settings from his work - unless it is a parody which is poking fun at something specific from one of his stories.

Any additional questions send them to me in a note. I am busy but will be happy to help you work on a story that will fit this project. In addition to the guidelines for submitting above, contributors will be able to purchase as many books as they want at cost to resell for whatever price they want. Please keep in mind this is NOT a job, but rather a project for fans to cooperate on. Additionally if the volume is high enough I will run a kickstarter to pay for an ISBN and printing a free copy for every contributor.

I will be releasing the comics this summer, probably at A-kon.

I hope this helps everybody who has had questions about the project. Thanks! ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ

Hey, I was looking for rules, like what do you except, how many pictures I can upload and such, but I couldn't find any.
If there are some restrictions (quality, quantity ect) would you please let me know, or would you give me a link where I can read the rules?
Thanks =)

You can upload as many as you like - but generally if you submit a bunch at a time only the best of the bunch will be voted in and the rest will be declined. So it's best to only submit your best pieces in the first place.
