Presto Strange-O Issue #1 Coming Together!

The debut issue of Presto Strange-O is coming together nicely. All of the rejection and acceptance letters have been sent! We’re hoping to have this issue done and printed by April 24.

We can still use some art work, so feel free to submit any art by April 20. You can see our current art needs in the previous post.


Still Reading – Artwork Needs

Hello world!

We’re still plowing through submission here at Presto Strange-O headquarters. If you still haven’t heard from us, don’t worry, you will soon, probably in the next week.

We’re still closed to fiction submissions, but we’re open to art, comics, and cartoons! In fact, here are our current artwork needs. We prefer black and white line art. If it has a retro flavor, that makes it all the better:

spaceship / rocket / planets / outer space
a T-Rex
a cockroach or two
a fish
a male doctor or medical stuff

Also, any comics or cartoons that have an air of oddness or absurdity are welcome!

Fiction Submissions – Temporarily Closed

We’re temporarily closing to fiction submissions for the time being so we can work through the huge pile. We like to keep our turnaround time quick. We should re-open in about two weeks. Thanks to everyone who has submitted thus far.

We are still open to artwork and nonfiction subs, and we still have room for ads, so keep sending those our way.

Submission Status!

We’ve already received many fine submissions for Presto Strange-O. We’re still working our way through the pile, so if you haven’t heard back yet, don’t worry!

Since Presto Strange-O has no back issues to reference, let me extrapolate on what we’re looking for (in case you’re curious). We really like stories that are absurd, surreal and odd. In short, it should be well-written, and it should be strange. If it makes me laugh on top of all that, you’ve really hit the nail on the head.

Also, we’re hurting for artwork and comics. If you draw, make cartoons, doodle real good, we would be thrilled if you submitted something!

We’re aiming to get issue #1 out by the first of April, hopefully sooner!

And . . . we are now listed on Duotrope.
