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. (For a full list of finalists, judges, and competition details, visit the Ghost City Comics site.)
We’re proud to see so many of our course alums and Creators Workshop members, past and present, on the finalists list. One is Milton Lawson, whose piece Roger Ebert and Me with artist Rem Broo was originally written as part of a Creators Workshop writing challenge. Stay tuned for an upcoming discussion with Milton here on the blog.
Also among the finalists is Paul Allor, whose Past the Last Mountain — created with Louie Joyce and former staffer Gannon Beck — has also been recognized with a Silver Ledger award and profiled on our blog.
