Let's be clear we're not going to be breaking new ground here. There's a lot of British small press comics out there and a few comics collectives currently running in the UK. After a quick search, one group really stands out, the Midlands Comics Collective or MC2. Established for several years, their ranks include professional & amateur artists and writers. They have produced a 96 page anthology and 3 comics and they are very, very good. Their current Chair, Laura Howell has been really helpful and generous with her advice which has given us an invaluable assist in setting up. These guys have shown us the way so as a huge thanks to Laura and MC2, I would encourage everyone to visit their site comicscollective.co.uk, check out their activities and buy some of their comics!
