Over the weekend, the winners of this years Dundee Comics Prize were announced and I'm happy to be able to tell you that my friend Robert Wells and I are one of the runners up with our entry, Connected.
The mock-cover Rob drew as part of our entry
You may remember that my strip, Jack The Robot, was a runner up in the competition in 2011. The strip later appeared in the University of Dundee's comic anthology, issue one of Thunder Brother: Soap Division and, very nearly, The Beano.
One of the pages from Connected.
This year's prize required entrants to create a new science fiction comic for children up to eight pages in length plus a cover. Because of these demands, I only wrote the strip and persuaded Rob to draw it. He did an extraordinary job, which goes to show that he produces his best work under pressure from me.
