FAQ

Does my work have to be a specific style?

No, ONTENTERHOOK is not looking for a specific style niche, so long as it's thriller it will be considered.

Can I submit multiple comics?

Yes, one submission form per comic.

Will this advertise my comic?

Not directly. ONTENTERHOOK is not an advertiser or a publisher. This is a co-op and informal collective of thriller webcomic artists pooling together for mutual benefit. This is a curated collection/collective.

Can I be in ONTENTERHOOK and _____?

Yes, so long as it doesn't violate any contract(s) you have existing with other groups you're in. ONTENTERHOOK is not exclusive. Hiveworks is an exclusive webcomic collective and publisher, ONTENTERHOOK is not.

How old do I have to be to submit my comic here?

18 or older

Do I have to host my own comic site to submit here?

No. ONTENTERHOOK is very lenient about hosting, feel free to host anywhere online, as long as it can be linked to this hub it's an option.

Can my work have nudity/erotic situations/etc.?

If the work is first and foremost a thriller or suspense work, yes.

My work didn't get accepted! Now what?

Don't fret. There will be more submission periods, and feedback will be given to people whose submissions were declined with reason as to why the work wasn't considered a good fit.

What if I want to leave the collective for whatever reason?

You're free to! This isn't the mob.

My work isn't horror but I really want to submit my comic, what do I do?

This is for thriller, not horror. They often overlap but they are not the same thing. Check out the collection on the comics page, this collective has a very diverse repertoire of comics!

Is ONTENTERHOOK for profit?

No this is a volunteer collective, no one is making money.
