“We want people to create a comic strip using the ROK Comics Comic Creator featuring someone telling the story of a difficult choice they’ve had to make in their life,” explains John Freeman, ROK Comics Managing Editor and former editor for titles such as Doctor Who Magazine and Star Trek Magazine.

“The theme was the idea of Shane Chebsey, one of the co-runners of BICS and a long-time supporter of Britain’s huge indie comics press. We think this challenge will appeal to many creators worldwide, and I’m looking forward to seeing what they come up with.”

“We at BICS love the way that Rok Comics is so accessible to both creators and readers,” says Shane, “and feel that working together we can help to bring the wonderful medium of comics to a wider readership. Mobile phones are now the most widely used method of communication in the world, so it seems the perfect way to present new comics to more people than ever before”.

ROK Comics is also running a separate competition challenging creators to come up with a humour comic.

The prize winner will be announced at BICS.
