By my reckoning, there's pretty much only two real comic publishers here. CFCA and Phospherescent. Both of them are the sort that require you to be really active with your work too.
They're usually at SupaNova's, so it's worth having a talk to them.
There's also OzTAKU, which is more of a cartoonist community than a publisher these days. But there are plenty of artists there with little or nothing to work on, so it could be worth hitting them up over on their forums, as they have a specific section for authors looking for artists: http://forums.oztaku.com

If you're just looking for an artist, it'd be easier to talk to the artists at SupaNova's, see if they're receptive to the idea, and then give them a copy of the script. Don't be pissy if they say no, as they're proabbly already working on their own projects or are snowed under by other pressures in their lives.
Also remember that different SupaNova's bring in different artists.

Wow! That's got to be the most Gypy contract ever, with the exception of the ones that has the final clause of "The terms of this contract may be subject to change without prior notice or warning"...

Thanks for your help. I'm considering self-publishing now. I'm not an artist so I'm looking for one, and for somewhere to get my work published too. I'll have to check out their websites for submitting to them. I just wondered if publishers preferred being shown work in real life or if htey wanted the script sent to them.

Once again, thanks for your help!

Anomic: Well, that's more of jacen's area, him being a lawyer and all... But I'm fairly certain it means that you're basically saying that if they happen to use an idea that's pretty much identical to yours except the colour of the super hero's underpants, then you've agreed to give up the rights to claim that the work, scripts, themes and characters were originally yours...
It's basically a more confusing way of saying you have to give up any rights or claims overthe work, and just hope that their decent enough to give you money for it.

Hey Ego,
This is how it seemed to me.. if you give us your idea we’ll use almost all it and you’ve waived your right to copyright by giving it to us in the first place. It appears a hardcore kind of stance that would put a lot of independent writers/artist off sending anything – probably explains why marvel just pump out repetitive storylines… most of ‘em steaming piles o’ crap.

As for the G&R references… Cammy’s only here for a few days and already you guys are pulling out the leather pants and bad hair … everyone knows the standard time is a week
