ComicScene revamps Comic Creator Directory, calls for entries, launches new digital Specials

ComicScene Montage

The ComicScene team has been publishing a Comic Creator Directory for a while now, a great resource for anyone trying to find comic writers, artists and others for professional commission or possible events. Now, they’ve made it easier for creators to submit information with a new survey.

The Comic Creator Directory is updated on a regular basis but creators listed are available for school, library, community group workshops, individual commissions and comic convention appearances. Some may also do online workshops.

The Directory starts with workshops by location. The Directory by name is in alphabetical order with some examples of work.

The ComicScene is a not for profit website that aims to inform, educate and inspire young and old to find out more about all aspects of comics in the UK, and internationally. Sharing news, reviews, articles, and the free Comic Creator Directory, it’s produced by a team of volunteers, with a passion for comics.

ComicScene also run the ComicScene Awards (there’s still time to vote!), offer free comics to read or download and send comics to libraries and schools to improve literacy and inspire creativity.

From 2022 they have asked followers for help to continue this work. For £20, you can become a Friend of ComicScene and support the website, and also get access to premium content, plus exclusive competitions, discounts on comics, ComicScene publications and events.

You also get access to over 2000-plus pages of content in the ComicScene Digital Comic Library, featuring a huge range of publications, including the new Best of ComicScene Batman Special and new Best of ComicScene Scottish Special.

“Your valuable contribution will cover our hosting costs and be shared with those who contribute articles or comics to this site and help fund comics for schools and libraries,” says publisher Tony Foster. “Thank you if you become a Friend of ComicScene. We appreciate it.”
