DC Comics’ Zuda Competition

John Zakour, author of The Blue Haired Bombshell and a really funny guy, sent me an email yesterday detailing his submission to the Zuda comics competition.

Starting Monday January 7th I’ll be part of DC’s comic Zuda. ( This is kind of like “American Idol” for comics. Each month DC picks 10 competitors and puts their work online for the public to judge and vote on. The winner at the end of each much receives a contract from DC to produce their comic for at least a year.
The comic I wrote, Demons in the Closet, debuts on the site on the 7th. Demons, which is drawn by the very talented Amy Watson (from Texas), centers around a teen named Sky who one evening discovers that his sister’s closet is nexus to another dimension filled with powerful demons. Only Sky and his sister can open the closet, letting the demons in or out. Amasta, the demons beautiful leader, insists that she and her minions are just here to “help”. She also warns Sky that there are other demons and some humans who would stop at nothing to have control of the closet. It’s up to Sky to figure out who he can and can’t trust.
So if you get a chance go to and check out Demons in the Closet. (Registering and voting and comments appreciated.)

I went and took a look. Registering is free and easy. Demons in the Closet has Zakour’s characteristic good humor and seems like it has potential for a good comic. The competition looks stiff so we’ll see how it goes. Each comic in the competition is only eight pages and is put together in flash player, so it is really easy to quickly read them. If you like comics you’ll enjoy this competition.
