Expressions of interest to be in our new anthology are now CLOSED. Thanks to all.
We’re making a comic about invertebrates, in partnership with the Spineless exhibition at Great North Museum:Hancock in Newcastle in summer 2015. Spineless is about invertebrate communities and habitats (or, as I've scribbled in my project planning notes, spineless minibeasts: where they live, what they do, and why they’re important). Each section of Spineless will spark one section of our comics anthology for children age 7-11, building on our superawesome Asteroid Belter: The Newcastle Science Comic (2013). For Spineless we'll be focussing on five habitats: coral reefs/tropical oceans, the seashore, rainforests, caves, and gardens. There might be beasties that talk, dance, fight, and have adventures. There might be puzzle pages or backyard activities to do. All that will depend on our comics creators and the exhibition's guest curators.
We need six comics creators for this paid project. The Spineless subject specialists are raring to go, and most of the comics making will happen in May 2015.
