Underdog triumphs! 

I was honoured and very surprised to hear that my one-page comic strip Underdog won second prize in the comic art competition at Thought Bubble.

Thought Bubble is a massive annual comics convention in Leeds, encompassing all types of comic, from super heroes to hastily-scrawled zines. I was particularly touched that there is also room for a middle-aged woman’s story of something as mundane as parenthood.
My prize was a bulging bag of comics and graphic novels, in which I’ve already discovered some unknown-to-me gems.

But the most exciting part of the prize is that Underdog will also be published in next year’s official Thought Bubble anthology, along with other winners (including the ace under 18s category). Woo hoo to a wider readership!

Sorry for the rubbish phone snap, but here’s Underdog projected onto the big screen at the prize ceremony. You can read the strip here.
