*Membership spots not really limited!
No, what's clear is you have an on going contest where the finalists/winners get free comics/ graphic novels and such. I did not see anywhere (in magazine) that it said get paid...Other than in your post here. Or maybe you're trying to "pay" talent with free stuff? Either way, I'm not interested. I hope you do well in getting people to fill content for you.
Also, don't get your panties in a wad. I never brought your talent into the conversation. I never heard of you till now. I would like to say, for someone who likes to bash mainstream comics, you're fairly sensitive about critique. Those who dish it out should be able to take it. There is a big difference between someone who "critiques" to see the industry change for the better and those who are just bitter because the industry doesn't give them the time of day.
Good luck to you. And I hope everyone who contributes gets what they deserve.
I love critiques. What you did was act like a douche. Big difference.
