Comics Uncovered returns to Birmingham in July, a must for aspiring comic creators

Comics Uncovered 2018

Smallzone Events is ramping up publicity for Comics Uncovered 2018, which returns to Birmingham in July.

Have you ever wanted to be a professional comics creator? Or are you a professional looking to take your career to the next level?

Perhaps you’d like to be working for a major publisher or publishing your own comics?

In the UK there are limited paths to careers for you. The team behind Comics Uncovered know that, because they’ve trodden that same road themselves.

“It’s our mission to help you take those first steps,” says Shane, “or perhaps even the most important steps, on that path and Comics Uncovered features over a dozen seminars, workshops, demos and master-classes conducted by top professionals, all aimed at creative people like you.”

Guest Speakers include influential professionals from across the world of Comics and over the two days you will have the opportunity to join both short two hour workshops and full weekend courses plus everything in between.

Some events are for beginners, whilst some are for more advanced creators.

There are also one to one portfolio reviews with editors, meetings with distributors for self publishers and a catered networking party in the evenings to help you secure those valuable connections made during the day.

“This year, we’re also hosting a Self Publishing Summit for independent creators and self publishers,” says Shane, “to discuss ideas for producing and promoting their work and to learn more about branding and marketing their own intelectual properties.”

If you’re serious about a career in comics and graphic novels then Comics Uncovered is the one essentail event on the calendar for you every other year. Follow the links for more information.
