A Big thanks is due to the best podcast out there for naming Drawn Under the Influence (DUI) as one of it’s favourite anthologies of 2021. I’ve been a listener of the 11 O’Clock Comics Podcast since Day 1 and the thrill of hearing a comic mentioned on there by these dudes is always the best! David was extremely kind to choose it as his pick and grant it an 11 O’Closcar! But a big hug is due to all the guys, David, Vince, Jason and fourth chair guest the effervescent Brian Newberry.
You can have a listen by clicking here and you can visit and join their comics community Patreon here. I’m a member and it is brilliant value for money and full of positivity and enthusiasm for the medium.
DUI began as a drunken suggestion during a very funny Awesome Comics Podcast Drink & Draw which everyone enthusiastically threw themselves into. I loved working on this book.
But the true hero here is one of my favourite people and the Grand Dame of Comics, Sarah Harris! Not only did she suggest the charity of Refuge (who received nearly £1k from this project) but she also edited the whole damn thing! It came out great and you’d never guess in a thousand years that this was her first go at editing. It is Slick AF! (As the kids say).
So here’s a big congratulations to every single person who took part in this project for free. Ain’t it cool seeing nice things go to good people!
Well done crew. Glad to know ya! And EOC chums, I own you a number of pints! Hopefully see you at NYCC!
Now sadly the anthology has sold out but you can still do the right thing and head over to the Refuge site and donate by clicking here. They are a great charity dedicated to helping women and children reclaim their lives after domestic violence. Go on, drop them a few quid!
Many thanks for reading.
