Agata’s entry

January 12, 2012 § Leave a comment

How cool is this?! A hugely vibrant and detailed piece from Agata Duda. I Love it.

I think all this fantastic work is going to send me back to the drawing board in shame . . . maybe a coffee first. Look forward to seeing more . . .

David Shaw’s entry demonstrates a very skilled economy of colour and type, creating a superb entry. Very strong.

Alice V S Turner’s entry is truly epic and a masterclass in visual storytelling.

How does he do it? Stephen Cheung’s entry mixes insanity and excitement in equal measure, very cool.

Some beautiful artwork and some equally interesting dialogue. Great work from Lasse, we like-it-a-lot!

Ok so I think it’s time to take a few sneaky peaks at some of the Life Boat entries so far. For those of you who remember Stuart Medley’s work from last year I’m sure you were expecting to be blown away by amazing artwork and superb storytelling skill – I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. Nice work Stuart.

AIC2 receives funding

January 11, 2012 § Leave a comment

We are delighted to announce that Adventures in Comics 2 has been awarded Arts Council funding!

This is largely due to the huge success of last year’s Adventures in Comics show and as a result of the support and enthusiasm of all those who contributed to make this an annual event. We will endeavor to make an even bigger noise with this year’s show.

We will be bringing you a great exhibition featuring entries to this year’s ‘LIFE BOAT’ 2-page-comic challenge (deadline is 20th January so you still have time to enter) which will be judged this year by Mr Paul Gravett; a series of practical workshops with special guests, to challenge your skills as comics writers and makers; and a beautiful publication to mark this year’s show.

We’ll see you there from 3 February 2012!

AIC2 Workshops

January 6, 2012 § Leave a comment

So you want to be a Comics superstar?!

As part of Adventures in Comics 2, Marine Studios, with the help of an extremely talented comics artist/writer (who shall remain anonymous – but has just launched a superb new graphic novel this week), will be running a set of practical comics workshops. These sessions will take place at Marine Studios, Margate, Kent on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th February, following the AIC2 launch.

This is a chance for you to get some great advice, feedback and industry knowledge on a wide range of topics. Whether you are a comics dabbler, a budding Alan Moore, or a seasoned pro – there’s lots here to get your teeth into.

The workshops will cover:

1. Make a comic in day master class (all levels)

2. Getting to Grips with Comics (for beginners)

3. Pitching and selling your Graphic Novels and Comics (more advanced)

The workshops will be run in small groups to really give you up-close and personal experience, so places are extremely limited. Each session is priced at £49 and you’ll also get to peruse in detail this year’s 2-page-comic challenge entries. Get in touch now to book your place on one or more of these sessions, email:   or
