Next Blart: Design a God

We're throwing the blarts open! Anyone can now send in an entry for this weeks (or any other weeks) blart. Details at the end of the post.

Kevin R-D has decided we must invent a pantheon of Gods suitable for the Swansea Comics Collective to worship. We would like to see divine beings that represent some aspect of comics, comic production or geekdom. Feel free to send in sketches, artwork or written pieces.

Entries must be received by the end of Tuesday 23rd November, ready for perusal at the next meeting at Noah's Yard. Email your entries to or post them into the SCC Facebook Group. 
Please keep submitted images under 1000 pixels wide and supply in JPG or PNG formats only. And don't forget to include your name and website link.
Thanks for looking...MWP

I had a blast doing my blart of Death from Neil Gaiman's Sandman series for this week, I did it using Sketchbook Mobile on my iPhone while sat on a beach in Majorca. Bliss. It was a popular pick and there are a few more Deaths which will be added whenever the respective artists press send...

Next up... Lobo!

Hey guys, hope your work shops are going well, I might pop a long to one of the last few if I can get to Swansea. I just wanted to let you know, as I know you'd all appreciate this but I recently had the honor of colouring and inking a comic, I can't say for what or when sadly, but the pencils were by David Roach. I think that's all I can say until it comes out and what not. It's just a one off. It was amazing to work with him and the other colourists. I actually get a credit at the beginning too! So yeah I'll let you know if can say anything more.

New SCC Headquarters

We're moving our meeting place. As of our next meeting, 21st July our new headquarters is upstairs at Noah's Yard in the Uplands. No more squeezing around a table with a football match in the background, we'll have our own room with settees and comfy chairs.
This Street View link was taken before Noah set up on the site of the old Thomsons Travel shop but it should help you find us. So come on down, blart in hand and join us.
Finally, many thanks to the Brunswick for putting up with us and the occasional slugfest.
SSC assemble!
