Hollywood-based publisher Galaxy Press has plans to turn author L. Ron Hubbards 10-volume science fiction saga, Mission Earth, into the biggest graphic novel series and is holding a contest to find illustrators. The comics are slated to begin rolling out to the public in the fall of 2006 to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the New York Times Best-Selling book series.
Galaxy Press president and publisher John Goodwin comments, "As a result of this contest, we hope to find a suitable graphic artist to assist in the design and production of the graphic novels based on Mission Earth: The Invaders Plan, the first volume of the Mission Earth series."
Entries from professional or amateur fiction artists interested in illustrating one or more of the graphic novels will be accepted until September 30, 2005. To qualify for review, submissions should depict at least one scene from any of Hubbards Mission Earth novels, widely available in bookstores and libraries.
Entry forms are available by request via e-mail to [email protected] No entry fees or purchases are required and submissions will not be returned.
