The University of Dundee and D. C. Thomson are running the second Dundee Comics Prize. To stand a chance of winning the first prize of £500 plus publication in the Sunday Post and the Dundee University publication Anthology, or one of the runners-up prizes of £250, they’re inviting comics creators to submit a two or three page comic strip and a cover, recreating the Amazing Mr. X, a superhero who first appeared in the Dandy in 1944, for the 21st century. Closing date is 1 October. Anybody fancy having a go?
