Pro Se Productions and AC Comics/Nightveil Media have joined forces to bring AC’s classic lineup of characters to the prose pages of New Pulp Fiction. That cannot be done without including one of AC’s most imaginative and strongest characters. Pro Se Productions is now taking submissions for short stories in an anthology featuring Bill Black’s creation- PARAGON!
“Paragon,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “is not just the requisite guy in tights and a cape that every comic company seems to have. No, Bill Black made sure Charlie Starrett stood out in many ways, including essentially giving him three separate identities, or phases of existence. With Paragon, stories can actually be told of his time as the western hero, The Latigo Kid or as the Golden Age hero Captain Paragon, or even as simply Paragon, a darker version of the hero as seen in DARK APOCALYPSE. This diverse history of the character makes him ideal for an anthology focused on any and all of his various phases. I cannot wait to see what writers come up with. ”
Stories for PARAGON must be 8-10,000 words in length. Each story must focus on ONE period of Paragon’s life-The Latigo Kid, Captain Paragon, or Paragon. Supporting characters from the AC Universe can be used in the stories, pending approval of proposals. A bible will be available for this call by emailing email@example.com. A proposal of 100-500 words must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Authors not previously published by Pro Se Productions must submit a writing sample of at least two pages with their proposals.
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. These are considered works for hire as PARAGON and related characters are the property of AC Comics/Nightveil Media.
PARAGON 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.
