Horror Artists Wanted

Back from the Depths - 2007Horror artists and writers are needed for a demonic new comic experiment! BackfromtheDepths.co.uk, the long running tribute site devoted to the 1980s classic IPC horror comic Scream!, is looking for writers and artist to contribute fresh material for a new online comic.

The re-vamped(!) BackfromtheDepths website has a huge collection of original Scream stories to view online, while the ever-growing fan artwork and stories section is a showcase of new talent, spooky stories and evil art.

Whether you are a budding artist or an experienced writer this great new project is open to all with a taste for the darker side of comics.

Just remember — “It’s Not for the Nervous!” as this fab sample image by Neil Sims will hopefully indicate…
