Were you at Glasgow’s Ghost Comics Festival last year – the festival for alternative comics? Do you wish it would happen again? Well, there’s no need to reminisce anymore, because Ghost is back, taking place on Saturday 26th October 2019.

Ghost Comics Festival aims to showcase a wide range of original, unique, and challenging work that promotes the potential and diversity of comics, visual narrative storytelling, and sequential art.

This year, the team are taking over The Art School in Glasgow for their second  Festival. Applications for tables will open on 26th July on the Festival web site – and there are a lot of surprises in store.
