Legends of the Wailing Blade Contest Submission
Calling all writers, your pals at ComixTribe have cooked up a cool contest we want you to know about!

For the upcoming new WAILING BLADE Volume 1: Headtaker collection, there will be an all-new section in the backmatter called LEGENDS of the WAILING BLADE.

No one really knows the origin story of the ancient technological relic wielded by the Headtaker known as the WAILING BLADE. But in every town and tavern, a different tale is spun about the true origin of the most fearsome weapon in the Tyrant's arsenal.

We're collecting a number of super short, one-page prose stories (250-500 words) recounting those legends that try to answer two questions:

1) Where did the blade come from?

2) Why does the blade wail?

Many of these stories will be matched with pin-ups from up-and-coming artists.

We've already received some amazing stories by established comic pros that will be included in the new volume.

But we know there's a tremendous wealth of talent in the ComixTribe fanbase, so we're opening up at least ONE spot to a writer in a new open-call contest!
