Free British comic anthology OFF LIFE seeks new blood

OFF LIFE Issue 11 - Cover


The latest issue of the free street comic OFF LIFE (Issue 11) may have only come out a month ago, but the editorial team have already opened submissions for their next issue (due out July) and we’re more than happy to spread the word that they’re looking for new contributors.

“We’re really keen to feature as many new, exciting and up-and-coming creators as possible,” Daniel Humphry told DownTheTubes, “and I know that you putting the call out will help us reach artists who may not of yet heard about us. (the scoundrels!)”

The comic is great fun, mixing strips with features, and distributed free in London and other cities – as well as being free to download. If you’re a comic creator, why not take a look at their site and grab some back issues while you’re there?
