As the title says, I'm looking for an artist, but not for myself. A good friend of mine is working on a fun, light-hearted web comic set in a very serious part of history (WWII era) and she's in need of a committed artist. I think the story is a wonderful mix of fun, quirky humor with a very serious/dark undertone and a cast of characters that would be all kinds of fun to design and illustrate, and I'm really hoping there's someone out there willing to help bring this story to life!

And now to hear from the writer herself:
My name is Sarah. I am a Written Arts and Literature student at Bard College intending to pursue comics professionally after I graduate (in 2 years.) My friend Naomi has been kind enough to post this advertisement for me, and I can't thank her enough, so here it goes:

I am looking to create a webcomic that would run for the next few years in order to actually start making comics, testing out my ideas, my format, and styles, before I start looking for work professionally. In short: I'm seeking an artist.

The comic is about a rag tag bunch of Nazi hunters (a Polish Jewish Girl, Nikola, an American soldier, Greg, a British soldier, Torvalt, a girl who worked in the French Resistance, Margot, and a defected Nazi, Kurt, called Klaus, who decided he was on the wrong side of the war because there were skulls on his uniform...and other less comical reasons. They're accompanied, guarded, and occasionally terrorized by Nikola's giant pet lion).

The plot would essentially emulate Joseph Cambell's "Hero's Journey;" it's very much a quest. The story is basically them journeying from France to Poland to save Nikola's older brother from the concentration camp he was taken to. They have an evil Nazi-officer big bad — sometimes referred to as Herr Evilface; he has villainous eyebrows.

The dynamic of the team and tone of the book is very Legend of Korra/Avatar meets Inglorious Basterds. (Though, my plot doesn't really borrow from either show or the movie — this won't be a fan comic.) There is a lot of humor, a few shenanigans, and a lot of bonding, but a very serious, dramatic plot, a lot of pain, blood, and a few people getting eating by a lion. (Only Nazi's get eaten by the lion.)

I have a lot more planned, but I wanted to see if anyone was interested first. I have sample scripts, character biographies, and a general outline, and a page-by-page breakdown of the first chapter.

I know this would be a lot of work for you, and it is a multi-year commitment, so please think carefully before you accept. If you accept, and I'd gladly give you 50% ownership of the comic. If you want to be paid, that's a little bit harder for me, but I'd be open to trying to work something out, though it's unlikely.

I'm so excited by this project, and I'm hoping to get someone else excited too! If you are, you can reach me at or at my deviantART account: demonstrablyuntrue.
