Jam comic with the Scribblers

Comic Art, Journal

Yesterday marked the inaugural meeting of our local comic / zine group, the Calder Valley Scribblers.

It was awesome! It pulled lots of comic-making creative people together… The grown ups talked about zines and comics, while the young ones drew some excellent comics together.

They reminded me of myself when I was their age… Except then, everyone I showed my age-inappropriate art to usually winced uncomfortably. So glad these kids have a safe an inclusive space to develop their talent, and hopefully build their confidence to do something great with it.

And, towards the end of the session, someone suggested a jam comic – where a pre-panelled paper goes around, and everybody does one frame. No script, no direction…


Ta da! Our first jam comic.
Mine’s panel 3.

If you’re in the Lancashire / West Yorkshire area, have a look at the facebook page. We meet monthly.
