To have a central location of Fantasy-themed webcomics within DA. Fantasy-themed comics in the group can include anything that defies our perception reality. Therefore even horror and superhero themes are welcome.
Promotion of your webcomic to a target audience that is interested in the work that you're doing. (ie webcomic fans that may be a member and/or watcher of this group). Once we have at least 100 members, monthly features will be available to highlight selected webcomic title(s) submitted within the group.
Meet friends and network with the people who can help you out and vice versa.
How it started
I am currently in the process of making a fantasy webcomic. I got a storyline, character designs and plot already. But it is hard to motivate myself to go on with the project without any like-minded people to inspire me with their drive and an audience with the same enthusiasm.
So an idea of a fantasy webcomic focused group came to me. I hope it will help all of you as much as I see it helping me

Comics Directory - Fill out the Group's Meme roguemina.deviantart.com/art/W… (you can also make your own) and submit it here to advertise your webcomic to the world. Readers, this is where you'll find the complete listings of Fantasy Webcomics in the group.
Concept Art - Concept artworks related to your comic. (e.g. character designs, environments, Covers etc.)
Comic Pages - Gallery for your sample comic pages. (Speech bubbles not required if you'd rather have the reader directly visit your webcomic site)
-Comic storyline must have a fantasy theme. . Hybrids are also fine. I'll use the term fantasy here loosely (e.g. sci-fi/fantasy, horror, etc).
-Absolutely NO unfinished work (e.g. sketches, half-assed work) but all skill levels are welcome. Just make sure you put your best effort in your submissions. You'd want to put your best foot forward to your potential readers, right?
-NSFW/Mature content are NOT accepted BUT Mature themed comics are welcome in the Webcomics listing as well as related artworks that are not labeled mature by DA standards. A field will be available in the comic profile meme to indicate this. If we get enough submissions, we might put a separate folder for these someday.
-Submitting to the wrong folder will be automatically declined, just resubmit to the correct one.
-I'll try my best to state the reasons for declining but sometimes I may be too busy. Just ask me if you're really curious.
Questions? Feel free to ask.
