Saturday AM presents SUMMER OF MANGA 2023!!

That’s right; our annual submission event is BACK for its’ 7th 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 be published in the 2023 summer issues of the Saturday AM Magazine!

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…

UPDATE: The final 20 participants!

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?


SUBMISSIONS END APRIL 28th, 2023 11:59pm PST

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. Including Walmart, Barnes and Noble, and Waterstones.

SATURDAY AM ANNUAL is a yearly anthology book series where we run short stories from top new creators.

The 1st book, Saturday AM ANNUAL 2023, featured 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 2025 ANNUAL (slated for late 2024).

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!

Saturday AM ANNUAL 2024 will be released on October 5th, 2023 -!!

The final 20 participants

Last Years SOM Submissions!!

The latest issue of SOM, which was published last year, featured 11 comics from artists around the world, all of which impressed the team with their storytelling and hard work. The one-shots debuted in ISSUE 151 and were a great success, thanks to the many submissions from talented individuals.
