This event is free; no tickets are required.

Minimum Paige, Harvard Book Store’s first ever comic anthology, will include work from some of the New England graphic novel community’s most well-known names—and we want to hear from you! Harvard Book Store is putting out the call for your talents in cartooning and graphic storytelling for inclusion in this unique and exciting compilation. Whether it’s a few humorous comic strips, an autobiographical mini or a tale of superpowered vengeance, we want your submissions!

Select entries will be included in Minimum Paige and will be automatically entered to win a Harvard Book Store gift certificate, but get to the drawing board quickly—the deadline for submission is August 19th at 5 PM EST.

Minimum Paige marks the first graphic novel and comics anthology ever printed on Paige M. Gutenborg, Harvard Book Store's in-house book machine.

We are excited to feature local comic artists, but submissions are welcome from all around the world.
