The Comic Book Alliance

March 17, 2010 in General


The Comic Book Alliance, a fledgling non-for profit organisation was founded in 2009 and is ‘‘dedicated to the promotion of British comic books, graphic novels, webcomics and sequential art in its many forms.’’ It duly joins our list of cartoon and comic art organisations. The organisation has just announced the winner of its recent competition to search for a new logo. The design (see above), features three interlocking speech balloons to represent the ‘‘cross-industry cohesiveness’’ the Alliance are looking to foster, according to chairman Tim Pilcher.

Thanks to the Birmingham Mail‘s Speech Balloons blog for alerting us to this news.
