YOUR STORY. MADE REAL.

What do blockbuster films Men in Black, Kingsman, Wanted, The Mask, Oldboy and hit series The Walking Dead, Watchmen, Umbrella Academy & The Boys all have in common?  

THEY ALL

STARTED

AS COMICS

 Hard Truth 

99% OF SCRIPTS NEVER GET MADE.

Most scripts never get read by more than a handful of people. Even studio-commissioned and contest-winning screenplays very rarely get 'produced'.

 Real Opportunity 

WE WILL MAKE YOUR SCRIPT A REAL COMIC.

This contest is different. Winners get their scripts made into comic books or graphic novels and published by Scout Comics one of the top indie comic labels.

 Endless Possibility 

NOT JUST PUBLISHED. OPTIONED.

These comic properties will be optioned by leading Hollywood production companies and read by top industry producers, agents, managers and financiers.
