Great news for Rapid City artist, Kav.Here's the news from Dundee College.
In 1944 The Dandy introduced the first home-grown British superhero – The Amazing Mr X, who appeared in 14 installments between 1944 and 1945. These stories were drawn by DC Thomson staff artist Jack Glass. When The Amazing Mr X made a brief reappearance in The Dandy Annual in 1962 he was drawn by Dudley D. Watkins. Since then he has been all but forgotten... but now we have the opportunity to bring the character back to life, re-interpreting the character for the 21st century!
The University of Dundee, in partnership with DC Thomson, is pleased to announce the Second Annual Dundee Comics Prize - a competition to re-create The Amazing Mr X.
Artist A. Kaviraj and writer Darrin O'Tolole have won runner up in the Dundee College sequential art contest with their mister X story, judged by Frank Quitely. They won the contest, which specified a three page story, but after they won runner up were asked if they could come up with two extra pages to more complete the story which they quickly did.
Congratulations to Kav and Darrin. Great work, fellas.
