Nothing beats a good old hero origin story and here we have Liam Magill’s submission for Adventures in Comcics 2015. Unfortunately I’m not sure that these two are really up for the job! Great work Liam, keep them coming.

Guildford College is the home of a wide range of visual and creative arts (as well as everything from construction to hairdressing. Our students are an eclectic bunch).

We are, possibly, best known for sculpture, with both Henry Moore and Dame Elizabeth Frinke walking through our beautiful School of Art doorway but nowadays we do a fine job of teaching visual arts on both desktop computer and touch screen. You may have seen us at MCM, LSCC, BETT, the Gadget Show Live, Eurogamer Expo and many more fine places in which case, hi, nice to see you again.

The students, every year, are given the Adventures in Comics brief, which is basically “two pages, that’s the title.” It’s fun and lovely and every year I love what they do. I hope you like it too.

This is the second submission from Laura Hanna Stevens. I was very intrigued by the style of illustration used here and maybe I have been playing too much Fallout: New Vegas but I would swear that is Mr House with Micky!

This is the first of two submissions from Laura Hanna Stevens, both very different takes on ‘The Waltze’ with two very different styles of illustration. Thanks for the submission, keep them coming.

Next up is a beautifully written and drawn entry from this trio. A touching story delivered in a hauntingly great style.

Grainne McEntee

Co-creator of Apes ‘n’ Capes with Matt Rooke, Grainne McEntee was born to and raised by a pack of God-fearing wolves in a cavernous hole punched in the side of a Drumlin in Cavan, Ireland. Cooking is her therapy. Writing is her attempt at making sense of the Universe. Still working on both.

Kieran Squires

Kieran has been doodling and writing for many a year and after reaching legendary status in his own house, he realised he should try to expand into the outside world. Comfortable writing or drawing, his only goal is to enjoy what he is doing as much as he can and ensure that when world domination comes, he has his pen and pencil ready to do battle. He is also available for birthdays, weddings and bah mitzvahs. http://www.iceburgbrothers.com

Matt Rooke

Matt Rooke is a UK based illustrator and graphic designer, with 15 years design industry experience. A senior designer by day, he illustrates comic books in his spare time. Current and recent projects include pet project Apes ‘n’ Capes, with co-creator and partner Grainne McEntee, now into its fifth issue; a 6 page short story written by David Bishop, for the successful Kickstarter zombie anthology Dead Roots, edited by Mike Garley. As well as creator-owned project, Toots Malloy: Blues Ninja with writer Patrick Cline, Matt is also contributing to upcoming Pearl Jam inspired anthology No (Comic) Code, edited by Pete Rogers from Dapper Chimp Press.
