Time to let go

This hit me on a personal level after losing my dog last year, i can really relate to holding on. Great use of the orb in this lovely comic.

We’re visiting space today thanks to Allan Linder’s submission. I feel like this could belong to a video game or movie. A fantastic story.

Hamster Dreams.

Today i’ve decided to post up a submission from Emma Thrussell.
I enjoy reading this comic through the layout and the lovely artwork and colours used. I may also be a little bit in love with the Hamster.

Another clever story, brilliantly drawn.

I am going to try to keep publishing as we go, but I am going to run out of superlatives very quickly so may just post the comics and let them speak for themselves.

If anyone out their would like to comment or respond please feel free and I will make sure they get shown as feedback.


Maria Torano:
I live and work in London. I draw and write comic books and do other forms of illustration and graphic design. My work deals mainly with the subjects of personal transformation and psychological states. I often create stories that contrast the very ordinary with the unexpected.

First Preview

As promised, here is the first of this years submissions to Adventures in Comics. It is only first because Zsolt Halmi, the artist, is the last in the list (alphabetically). His imaginative approach is a good clue for what is to come. I will keep posting the entries up as we organise the website and exhibition and try to keep everyone informed as to our plans.

There were 58 submissions this year from all over the world, and once again we are delighted to be the host of such talent and imagination. Well done all!



Wow – another amazing year!

Another year of wonderful submissions from all over the world.
It is going to take some time to set them all up on the website but I will start publishing a few on the blog as we go.
Thank you all for coming up with such great ideas.

Where Am I?
