We were very excited to see the short list for this year’s SICBA Awards (Scottish Independent Comic Book Alliance). Two of the artists in our Ink Pot Studio are nominated for several awards:
Catriona Laird is nominated for Best Single Issue, Best Artist, Best Writer, and Up and Coming Talent for her book Stinger.
Andy Herd is nominated for Best Graphic Novel and Best Writer for his book Skip Tobey: Volume 1.
Also, nominated from the wider Dundee comics community are DCCS pals Letty Wilson as Best Graphic Novel for A Stranger Came to Town, and Erin Keepers as Best Writer for Cosmic #3.
Well done everyone, and good luck!
