Crawl Hole - Waist Deep In SICBA

I'm very happy to say that me and Iain Laurie's 2013 experimental horror comic Crawl Hole has been nominated for Best Comic and Best Cover at this year's Scottish Independent Comic Book Awards!

The SICBAs are part of the Glasgow Comic Con on the 5th and 6th of July. I'll be exhibiting in the Art School venue both days, so please do come by and check out some comics and have a chat! Voting for the SICBAs is on the 5th of July with the winners announced at the Ceremony that evening at the CCA. Do check out the full nominations shortlist, some excellent work therein, and all books will be available to read in the voting area. No expectation of snatching a gong in the name of weirdo comics, but a good night is sure to be had!

If you're not at the Con, you can get it in Forbidden Planet GlasgowWaterstones Argyle StreetGeek Retreat UK, or by post at my Big Cartel Shop and digitally at Gumroad

Glasgow Comic Con is popular with the Cosplay Contingent, who are always a pleasure to talk to and bring a huge amount of colour and fun to the comic con scene. So should any of Scotland's cosplayers have the nerve, the steeeeel required to commit to Crawl Hole Cosplay.... here's a handy guide. Click to embiggen!

Hope to see you there! Some kind words on Crawl Hole of late...
As usual with these gents, gore, violence and a twisted sense of humour is real high in the mix... All in all, this one is slight, but manages to do the important thing; it’s satisfying, with ideas that make the sum of the experience far greater than the page-count." Forbidden Planet.
"The breadth of stoires covers the existential angst of modern man, assisted suicide, uncomfortable reunions and childhood nursery rhymes, all filtered through a death metal sensibility.... Collins' warped sensibilities really do hold nothing sacred." Starburst Magazine
"Once again Crawl Hole is material that makes the reader positively delight in the unnerving; if you like your comics riddled with a creepiness that will leave you feeling profoundly uncomfortable after reading then you can’t go far wrong with a Collins-Laurie offering." Broken Frontier
