Exposure – a preview

With only 12 hours to go until OtakuFest ACT, let me tell you a bit about ACT Comic Meet’s most recent project…

Earlier this year, ACT Comic Meet published a group anthology about ‘Exposure’.

You know – we’ve all been offered creative work, and when the subject of payment is raised we are assured that it is an opportunity of a lifetime and they won’t offend us by offering us mere money. The exposure this gig will generate will be more than enough to compensate us for hours (sometimes weeks or months) of our time. And maybe this is true! (And… maybe it is not.)

The comic anthology has been out for a little while, and I haven’t put any previews up online… until now. Here is EmmJ’s two-page story in full.


There are eleven more stories in the anthology, and there is a beautiful cover by the amazingly talented Katie Winchester, and it is available for $4 – tomorrow at Otakufest, or online at our etsy store.


Lineup and Cover

I picked Exposure Anthology up from the printers, so I can now reveal the cover and the lineup!image

This book is now up on our Etsy store, and we’ll have a stack at ComicGong this weekend.

(There are tentative plans to have a fancy launch – let us know if you’d be interested in coming!)

The cover (which I nicknamed the ‘Vitruvian Life Model’) is by Katie Winchester.

UPDATE – Exposure

The due date for final submissions remains 5 April 2014, however…

To assist us in planning for this anthology, if you are considering or planning to make a submission, please email by 1 March 2014.

The submissions, sketches and scripts we have seen so far for this project have made us excited, and we’d love to know what you’re considering submitting.

ALSO (bonus!)…
If we receive your full submission by 1 March 2014, we would love to include it in our EXPOSURE (TEASE) collection – a limited release comic/zine which will be available only at the Canberra Zine Emporium/You Are Here zine fair in Canberra on 23 March 2014.

As always, if you have any questions or would like to know more, please contact
