Article: Adventures in Comics 3 - The Great Tree
Posted: February 18, 2013
This year, Marine Studios in Margate, Kent have organised their third comics competition Adventures in Comics on the theme ‘The Great Tree”. Over sixty submissions were sent in from as far afield as Sarawak and Minneapolis and all of them are eventually being posted online here. Mike Garley, editor in chief of new monthly digital comic VS Comics, was their guest speaker for their First Friday evening event on February 1st, and he will publish the best three comics submissions in his digital comics edition.
Publication of the tabloid newspaper compilation of entries will coincide with Margate’s GEEK2013 gaming convention next weekend. All entries were on display at Marine Studios on 1st February at their First Friday evening. This exhibition will then move to the Pie Factory, 5 Broad Street, Margate CT9 1EW from February 21st to 24th 2013 (open 12-4pm each day), where the public will identify the stories they think should win. These “people’s-choice” picks will share the winners’ podium with my own personal choice as guest judge and comics aficionado! And I’ll be in Margate this Saturday February 23rd to give an illustrated talk for GEEK2013 from 11am to 12 noon, and announce the results. Hope to see some of you there!
