I'm just going to throw this out there as a current professional working in the comic industry- the average pay rate for professional level pencil pages is (minimum average) $75.00 per. Double that for inks. If you're looking for something serious, that's about the rate you're going to have to pay. That being said, your best option would be finding someone willing to do the work and take it to a publication company that accepts open submissions for graphic novels. Webcomics aren't extraordinarily lucrative. However, Comixology has recently opened up a submissions channel that allows for free digital distribution. What this means is- you, as the artist/writer team pay NOTHING, and Comixology sells a digital copy of your comic for a minimum of 1.00 USD. After they make $100.00 off of sales, you begin to get 50% of whatever money is made off of your comic. Keep in mind- You as the creator still retain ALL rights to the comic as per Comixology's guidelines. It's a pretty unique opportunity for artists looking to get published for the first time. SO. If you have a concise, edited, and polished script, you might be more apt to find someone to draw it and do this with you. It's a 0-risk situation and you might make a bit of cash off of it. Happy hunting.
