“We’re more than happy to throw down the challenge to comic creators to create funny comics for mobile again,” said John Freeman, ROK Comics Managing Editor and former editor for titles such as the UK Simpsons Comic, Doctor Who Magazine and Star Trek Magazine.

“Last year’s humour competition attracted a huge number of entries,” he added “and our external judge for the competition, Alan Digby, editor of the top-selling British weekly comic The Beano was very impressed.”

“The standard was very high, and the different approaches to a inherently restricted art form, such as the ‘three picture’ strip cartoon, were refreshing,” commented Alan.

ROK Comics is also running a separate competition in partnership with the Birmingham International Comic Show challenging creators to come up with a comic about a life changing moment.
