In 1985, AC Comics, founded by Bill Black, made history by forming a team like no other in comics then or since. The Federal Emergency Missions Force, popularly known as Femforce, was the first team made up of super heroines and for thirty plus years, characters like Ms. Victory, She-Cat, Nightveil and others have fought evil and stood for justice in comic books. And now, Pro Se Productions, through a licensing relationship with AC Comics and Nightveil Media, opens a call for the first anthology to feature prose adventures of the most powerful women ever drawn. FEMFORCE CLOSE UP VOLUME ONE is now open for submissions.

“There are certain properties,” says Tommy Hancock, Partner in and Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “ certain projects that a publisher, if they get the chance to work on them, recognizes as special and important. From the first moment discussions began with Bill Black about Pro Se producing the prose adventures of AC Comics’ characters, Femforce was the holy grail, the prize. These aren’t just super heroes who happen to be women. These characters are each very rich, fully realized not only as a part of Femforce, but as characters on their own. And, to introduce them to Pro Se properly, FEMFORCE CLOSE UP will focus on stand alone stories, each one featuring a Femforce member on her own.”

Stories for FEMFORCE CLOSE UP can be set in any period the heroines on the team were active, according to their comic history. Each story must feature only ONE of the following team members as the lead character-Ms. Victory, Nightveil, Stardust, She-Cat, Synn, Tara, Rio Rita, Garganta, The Blue Bulleteer. No other members from this list may appear in the story, but other heroes or villains from AC Comics can be used.

Stories for FEMFORCE CLOSE UP must be 8-10,000 words in length. A proposal of 100-500 words must be submitted to Although a working knowledge of the characters is best before proposing, information about the individual characters is available upon request by emailing Authors not previously published by Pro Se Productions must submit a writing sample of at least two pages with their proposals.

If accepted, final deadline for completed stories is 90 days following acceptance of proposals. Payment will be in the form of royalties, the percentage determined by number of accepted submissions. This is a work for hire submission, as the properties used belong to AC Comics and Nightveil Media.

FEMFORCE CLOSE UP VOLUME ONE is a part of the Pro Se Open, the company’s anthology project, and is scheduled to be published in the 2019-2021 calendar years, depending on submissions and other factors.
