New British Small Press Community launched

Comic creator Trystan Mitchell just dropped us a note to mention an excellent new Small Press Comics Community Forum has just been birthed in the UK, dedicated to small press comics and self publishing. Some excellent discussions and experience sharing going on between some really inspirational creators and fans.

“It looks like developing into a really valuable asset and worthwhile venue,” says Illustrator, writer paper toy creator and sign-writer Trystan, whose credits include work for The Guardian and commissions for campaigning organisations The Land is Ours and Greenpeace. “Highly recommended.”

It’s described as a forum for Small Press comic fans, contributors and creators where they can share and discuss their Small Press Comics and other comic discussion.

Always good to see another place for British creators to chew over ideas and trade tips and offer advice. Along with our own Forum, Smallzone, Bugpowder, the Temple APA and the official 2000AD forum, to name but a few, the opportunities for this are ever growing.
