Sandstorm Comics, a new comics studio in Abu Dhabi, is committed to nurturing local talent and helping to build the region’s comics ecosystem. The studio’s inaugural event, Storm the Block, will feature a number of initiatives designed to support local artists and writers.
One such initiative will see aspiring creators able to submit their pitches for comic books or graphic novels spanning any genre, theme or style. Local comic book creators are invited to submit their pitches for new comic book series to Sandstorm.
