ComicScene releases digital “Best of Indie Scottish Special” for Scottish Comic Book Day

It’s Scottish Comic Book Day today (Saturday 27th November) – a celebration of comics, graphic novels, comic artwork and related media with a link to Scotland.

ComicScene ComicScene releases digital “Best of Indie Scottish Special” for Scottish Comic Book Day 2021 - Cover

To celebrate, the ComicScene team have produced a 40-page Best of Indie Scottish Special comic for £2.99 in digital with £1 going to cancer support – and today only, you get the 116 page ComicScene Annual 2021 free in digital when when you order.

Scottish Comic Book Day is the brainchild of comics writer Colin Maxwell, but no-one owns it. “It’s yours, it’s mine, it’s a’body’s!”, we’re told, although there is a Twitter account for the project @scotcomicsday. Comic shops can participate (and are, including Kingdom Comics in Kirkcaldy) by having creators along to sell and sign their comics or by displaying comics with a Scottish link (creator, character, location, etc).

If you’re feeling more adventurous, why not have a drawing or writing workshop, or make a comic of your own? The main thing is to share it widely. Post photos or videos of what you’re doing and use the hashtag #ScottishComicBookDay. (Creators can reach a wider audience by sharing their work on social media with the hashtag).
