We work with numerous creators, artists, and writers to create ICC Magazine, and are right in the thick of exploring the infinite universe of Independent Comics! We want our contributors to be on top of the hottest rising stars in Indie Comics. We’ll be looking for comic book or graphic novel reviews, Artist Spotlight interviews, Comic Convention photos and reporting articles, artist tutorials, techniques and How-To articles, marketing, promoting or similar How To Succeed In Indie Comics type articles. If you have an idea, or story, or photo—or anything!—that you think would work in our pages, we’d love to hear about it. But please take a look at our magazine and website first.

The Premiere issue of ICC Magazine is on sale here, and you can download inexpensive digital versions of our back issues at the same link for $1.99. We’d also love to hear from you if you have a comic you think our readers would love. We can add your comics to our Store, and share these products regularly with our fans on Facebook. We will also sometimes share our best website articles on our Independent Creators Connection Facebook page with over 8,300 followers, with a credit link provided.

Due to the volume of submissions we receive, we are not able to guarantee a response to those who contact us.

A few general guidelines for submission

  • Please attach individual JPG files no larger than 3mb/image to your email, or provide links to easily-accessible files. If you give us large zip files to download, or a link to a photo site that requires a log in, we will likely not be able to view your images. If we choose to use your images, we can ask for larger copies of images in a follow-up email. We can provide a DropBox link on request.
  • Photos or images containing nudity, pornography or excessive violence will not be considered for ICC Magazine or any of our social media sites.
  • Independent Creators Connection strives to keep an all-ages rating. We tend not to publish anything too dark, too overtly fantastic or spiritual, and original writing or comic page excerpts from published or soon-to-be-published comics MUST INCLUDE proper artist credits.
  • Article and story submissions should also be attached as Word documents.

ICC Magazine’s submission deadlines are generally as follows:

Spring issue: December 20th

Summer issue: March 20th

Fall issue: July 20th

Winter issue: September 20th
