Ghost City Finalists Include Multiple CE Community Members!

Finalists in the Ghost City Comics Competition have been announced, and the list includes nine members of the Comics Experience community!

The competition is in its first year, designed to foster opportunities for independent comic creators. Finalists were announced on September 1, 2017, with the winners due for announcement on September 15. Categories include one-page, short, and single-issue comics.

Stay tuned for an upcoming discussion with Milton here on the blog.
