Committed Comics is excited once again to be part of the SDCC Comic Con at Home event. If you were here in 2020 then welcome back and we look forward to seeing the progress in your work, but for those who are new; we encourge you to take a look around our website and get to know the company and the products we produce. Committed Comics is once again seeking creative people who are looking for their way into the comic book industry.

Once again San Diego is going to be open to anyone who has an internet connection. And we at Committed Comics are happy to be part of this amazing event by offering the portfolio reviews we hold at the show; online!

Over Comic Con Weekend (July 24th and 25th) we will be choosing up to 20 portfolio to review online via ZOOM.

We are seeking portfolios that contain sequential artwork samples with preference given to inkers and letterers. You are welcome to submit your portfolio if it does not contain sequential artwork but know that ones that do will be given priority.

If you are a writer don't feel that this virtual portfolio review isn't for you...you're more than welcome to send in samples of your writing and if you've got what it takes we will contact you for a virtual review/discussion.

What your portfolio should contain

Please remember to review all of the above information carefully before sending your submission
Email portfolios to: sdccportfolios@committedcomics.com (again deadline is 8 pm PST on 7/20/2021)

5 simple tips

We usually post these up every year for SDCC Portfolio review participants. Now granted the last 2 won't really apply to the virtual option of 2021 but this is all good information to remember when you come to a portfolio review
(either for Committed Comics or any company)

  1. Be polite and professional - Each portfolio review is a job interview, so treat it as such.

    When your name is called or you walk up to the booth introduce yourself by giving your name and a polite greating. Also nicknames aren't always the best way to make a first impression (We have heard - "Hello I'm Great Artist Mackdaddy and I want to draw for your company" - 1st impression FAIL!)

  2. Limited Portfolio Samples - Keep the samples in your portfolio to no more then six (6) sequential pages and two (2) pin ups/cover samples. Eight samples should be enough for the reviewer to get a sense of your ability.

    If you have shown your work to us in the past it might be a good idea to have ONE (1) page from your previous submissions to remind Editor in Chief, Thomas Doherty who you are (he has a freaky visual memory)

  3. Keep your work current - Have your most current work is in the front of your portfolio. Having the reviewer see work that is old does not reflect well on your ability and what you can bring to the company.

  4. Have a sample packet - Make sure you have a sample packet to give to the reviewer. In this packet you can include additional samples of your work beyond the suggested eight sample pages. Have a sample packet the editor can take with them! Make sure that your sample packet has your contact information on each page of the packet!

    It is suggested if you have 11x17 artwork to have those copied and folded once so the packet is no larger than 8.5x11. Remember the Committed Crew has to travel and get all the submission packets back to Seattle so having a super oversized sample packet is not the smartest idea!

  5. Buy a portfolio - It sounds silly but over the years plenty of people have shown up to the portfolio review/talent search with a handful of papers in a plastic bag, binder, folder, or even a backpack. Buying a portfolio tells Committed Comics that you are a little more serious then the average person off the street.
