The organisation has also announced that editor Ben Abernathy will be departing DC Comics to work for Madefire.

"OK, here's a chance to get a paid gig alongside some of the greatest names in the imaginative arts industry: Dave Gibbons, Bill Sienkiewicz, Brian Bolland, Mike Carey and more," wrote co-founder Liam Sharp on the company's blog.

"Madefire is looking for a horror illustrator for a story that will go live on our 5-star rated app at Halloween. The creature in the story is a Metawhal Alpha (drawn by me, above).

"Please DON'T send me direct messages, including via DeviantArt. Simply submit your work to us at: contact@madefire.com. Then go and check out the rest of our website and/or iPad app to get a feel for what we're creating. The portfolio submission period won't last for more than a few weeks, as we want to select an illustrator in time for a finished title to go live end of October."

Sharp revealed that Abernathy would be leaving DC after over a decade to join Madefire.

"About two years ago Ben [Wolstenholme] and I realised there would be a point very early on where Madefire needed a full-time editor, if all went to plan," he told ComicBooked.com.

"We started to draft a wish-list - and it barely got past one! Ben Abernathy!"

Abernathy was senior editor of the WildStorm imprint before its closure in 2010. Most recently he has served as DC's digital editor.

Madefire launched its free app in June.
