TIME magazine Home - The Globe and Mail Submissions | Archaia Entertainment Dear Creator: Since our founding, one of Archaia’s core missions has been to publish artful, engaging, and groundbreaking graphical literature from both new and established creators. We have historically looked for work that tests the boundaries of the graphic novel medium, and continue to do so, by expanding our publishing mandate into illustrated prose as well. Submissions for graphic novels are more than welcome, and we will be looking for works that enthrall and excite us, that strike us as having a unique take or perspective on a medium, story, character, or genre. While we’ve primarily published works in the adventure, fantasy, horror, pulp noir and science fiction genres, we are interested in passion projects, works that are driven by a creator’s unique vision and voice, and so authors are invited to submit works of any genre to us. Thank you so very much for your interest! Mark Smylie, Chief Creative Officer

The Globe and Mail (Canada) Gertie the Dinosaur Gertie the Dinosaur is a 1914 animated short film by American cartoonist and animator Winsor McCay. It is the earliest animated film to feature a dinosaur. McCay first used the film before live audiences as an interactive part of his vaudeville act; the frisky, childlike Gertie did tricks at the command of her master. McCay's employer William Randolph Hearst later curtailed McCay's vaudeville activities, so McCay added a live-action introductory sequence to the film for its theatrical release. Background[edit] Winsor McCay was a pioneer in comic strips and animation (1906 photo). Winsor McCay (c. 1867–71 – 1934)[a] had worked prolifically as a commercial artist and cartoonist by the time he started making newspaper comic strips such as Dream of the Rarebit Fiend (1904–11)[b] and his signature strip Little Nemo (1905–14). He heard a couple of "sweet boys" [gay men] out in the hall talking to each other, and one of them said, "Oh, Bertie, wait a minute!" Content[edit] Synopsis[edit]
