Sneaky Business Vol. 2
After the success of last year’s 12-page comics-zine Sneaky Business, October 2016 saw the launch of volume 2! This time, things were a little different. Instead of hand-picking comic buddies to take part like I did in 2015 I opened up submissions to everyone and anyone!
Launched at Bristol Comic & Zine Fair on Saturday 1st October, Sneaky Business Vol. 2 featured work from:
Alan Henderson, Alex Hahn, Alex Tawns, Danny Noble, David Robertson, Elias Bevan, Elizabeth Querstret,Evan Stamps, Jason Song Quinn, Jessy Oddie, K. LY R, Lorne Colt, Martyn B. Lorbiecki, Phu Vuong, Isa Enriquez, Jamie Me, Rica March, Wallis Eates, and myself.
Sneaky Business vol. 2 is available to buy online for the bargain price of £3 from my Etsy store. It’s also available at selected small-press friendly comic shops in the UK, and will be available for sale at future comic festivals (for a full list of upcoming events, please see my About & Contact page). Limited to a print run of 100, SB2 contains 32 pages with work from 19 creators in a small and affordable package, priced as low as possible to open up comics to the casual browser as well as more seasoned comic fans. Sneaky Business is purely a platform to get together some awesome stories and expose each other and existing/new readers to fresh and entertaining work. All rights remain in the hands of the creators – the way it should be!
“There’s a great charm to this volume’s humour that makes me think of napkin doodles with friends that have been polished into something beautiful, and I think this is the kind of collection you might share with friends, to give them a reason to smile.”
“Sneaky Business #2 is indeed an extremely eclectic compilation of comics and, given that slightly patchwork array of styles and genres, it’s inevitable that each individual reader will gravitate more towards some sections than others. But that selfsame disparate line-up is also part of its charm. As is often the way with anthologies there’s only room here to cover a selection of those who contributed to this volume but at an almost giveaway price of £3.00 there’s really no excuse for not picking up a copy of a book that acts as a communal platform for so many distinctively different forms of practice all tied together by that one unifying theme.”
Sneaky Business Vol. 3 call for submissions will open in early 2017.
