VIZ is currently accepting submissions for one-shots and VIZ Originals via our online submission portal and we can’t wait to hear from you! For a chance to be published alongside the world’s best mangaka, please prepare the following before submitting:
For One-Shots: A manga one-shot of between 20–50 pages. Completed pages are preferred, but we can accept a work-in-progress. Thumbnails are okay, but please also include an inked character design.
For VIZ Originals: At least 10 pages of sample black and white sequential manga illustrating a scene from your manga, along with a series summary and proposed series outline that describes the world you are building and how the story and characters develop as the series progresses.
For both: In addition to the sample art pages, a great submission will also include:
BONUS! Additional sample sequential work: Related to the submission or not, we’d like a sense of the work you’ve done previously – examples that demonstrate you are ready to achieve the visual aims of your manga.
