I can contribute script or prose. What kind of length are you looking for (Matron!)?

At the moment it looks like I'm going to have more use for prose (or articles) I think between two and 3 thousand words.

I Would like to make a comic full of strips but realistically artists able to commit to sequential pages are going to be hard to find

Ok, I'll get my thinking helmet on. What's the deadline?

The deadline is 'when I have enough stuff to fill a comic' realistically 2 years but I would love to have it done sooner.

I think either a US comic or Magazine format would be interesting (important to decide on the format before producing any art)

A mix of colour and black and white content. (mostly B&W)

An 8bit style top down shooter, cover disk (the disk would be fake but the game would be real and could be downloaded from a link)

Nice one! I will message to find out some important details (like how long, and if you have any preferential characters or tone)

It's all right, that's in every contract.
That's what they call a sanity clause.
You can't fool me, there ain't no sanity clause.

Thanks flip! I'm going to start a Facebook group soon for paring writers and artists and to get things going.

I've never put together a Fanzine before, and by it's very nature this is someone else's intellectual property.

Who at Rebellion should I ask if this is OK to avoid being sued?

What's the Etiquette with fanzines?

I'd suggest Molch-R in the first instance- if it needs to be a different droid, I'm sure he would be able to tell you.

Thanks Bolt!

Fanzines and Fan art are such an integral part of the fan community I had really considers how massively copyright infringing it all is!

Guidelines are simple for anyone interested: I would like Stories (Artists and writers wanted, but the number of writers would depend on the number of artist)  Pinups/illustrations, prose stories and articles relating to Rogue, ancillary characters and his descendants.

I'm particularly interested in sorties that either add depth or explore unexplored ideas. The tone should be broadly consistent with 2000ad, current or past.
