Dundee Comics Prize 2013
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.
