Unico Comics Announces ‘Collections: The Annual’


The British small press comic publisher, Unico Comics,  have announced that they are releasing Collections: The Annual. This new 150-page book is the amalgamation of the three issues of the Unico Collections anthology comics they have done since 2007.

Unico Collections was started by Unico Comics and the Amateur comics Guild, and was an amateur only comic book, open to any artist or writer from across the UK, who felt they were up to the challenge of making their own comic. This meant that people who wanted to break out into the comic world were given a chance to show their talent through this series, and give them that rare first step on to the small press network. This new Annual contains all three issues of the Unico Collections anthologies, and will also feature a number of never before seen comics, by new artists and writers. The collection will also mark the end of the Anthology series for Unico Comics.

The annual is on sale at Lulu.com, and is available as either a physical copy, for £6.00/$9.57 (see here), or a digital download, costing $1.50/2.39 (see here).
