Conjurers Confidential

I entered the Observer/Jonathan Cape Graphic Short Story prize last year, and though I didn’t get anywhere I was pleased with the entry. Figuring that because it’s madness to try the same thing and expect a different result, this year I tried something new. With the same result.

Conjurers Confidential is a four page strip written by my friend Stephen Aston. Compared to the strips I write, this has an awful lot packed into four pages. We intended it to be funny, grotesque and take a shot at the entertainment scene we both grew up with, which has produced grim headlines in the last couple of years.

Will I enter again next year? Maybe. The competition can result in exposure that far exceeds the self publishing cul-de-sac I’m in, and provides a rare brief to respond to. And it’s fun to do.

Thanks to Steve for a brilliant (first time) comic script.

My entry from 2013 follows below.

And from 2013…
