(With thanks to Paul Gravett) Great news! Adventures in Comics returns for its fourth fantastic year, inviting comics creators worldwide to submit their two-page comics for an exhibition at Marine Studios, Margate, Kent from April 1st 2014 and other venues to be confirmed.

As well as appearing on the gallery walls, the best 50 entries will be published in the annual Adventures in Comics newspaper and on the website.

The theme this year is ‘The Orb’ and the deadline has been extended until 7th March 2014.

Marine Studios is the home and organiser of Adventures in Comics. Also home to award-winning museum design agency HKD, Marine Studios aims to be a hub for ideas and creativity, community and participation.
