It’s been a bit quiet since the show due to the fact i’ve had my head down to get all the submissions up on our website.

They are all together in all their glory, looking fabulous! Go get reading!

The show was great, we should have some pictures up soon, and we should also have some news soon so keep peeled!

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!
