Saturday AM presents SUMMER OF MANGA 2022!!

That’s right; our annual submission event is BACK for its’ 6th year! And it’s BIGGER THAN EVER!

Once again, we are accepting ORIGINAL SHORT STORY SUBMISSIONS from artists around the world aged 18 and up for a limited time. These short stories must have a beginning, middle, and end. No chapter ones or scenes of an existing comic will be permitted.

If selected, the entries will publish within the 2022 summer issues of Saturday AM or Saturday AFTERNOON (via our PILOT MANGA site).

As space is limited, we’ll be looking for ONLY the BEST, MOST ORIGINAL, and most PROFESSIONAL entries and artists for inclusion. And considering that past alumni have ended up working on Saturday AM, Saturday PM, Saturday BRUNCH, or Saturday AFTERNOON – it’s a fantastic opportunity to experience our diverse manga revolution.

But that’s not all.

Not by a LONG SHOT…

The SOM Artists Have Completed their ONESHOTS!!

 11 Comics…From Artists All over the World… We were so very impressed with all the story’s that debuted in ISSUE 151. It’s obvious how much work went into all of them. 

This years SOM was a great success! and we thank everyone who submitted their one-shots for us to read. If you haven’t checked them out they’re available now to read in our latest issue. GO GIVE THEM A READ!

SATURDAY AM ISSUE 151 COVER Summer of Manga 2022

the official eleven artists


who of these artists will appear in the next saturday am annual?

Our new graphic novel partnership with Quarto Group has brought us a chance to get more of our diverse manga to retail stores worldwide. The new SATURDAY AM ANNUAL book series is a yearly anthology where we run short stories from top new creators. 

The 1st book, Saturday AM ANNUAL 2023, features commissioned short stories from artists in Greece, Nigeria, Ghana, America, the United Kingdom, and Canada, and nearly all were PAST #SUMMEROFMANGA artists. 

THIS YEAR’S SUMMER OF MANGA will bring us the artists who will participate in our 2024 ANNUAL (slated for late 2023). 

Finally, our loyal readers will not only vote on the stories, but they will offer the most in-depth critique of your short stories with the sort of honest commentary that you won’t find on most webcomic sites.

Saturday AM ANNUAL 2023 is available NOW!

the rules

1) We accept only short stories because if you’re unable to tell a story in 10 pages – odds are you won’t be able to in 30 pages.

2) Work must be original – no fan fiction, please.

3) Age appropriate titles only – we do not want to censor a creator due to mature themes and graphic images.

4) the one-shot pitch we are asking you to create, MUST be a brand new idea. Not an already existing series.

So, what are you waiting for?
