About CCC

Comic Creative Catalyst (CCC) was founded by John McCrea, Laura Howell and Clare Downes in 2017 in response to a lack of professional development opportunities for emerging comic artists. CCC evolved from Hi8tus, an organisation that ran the Strip Search Programme which supported and promoted emerging talent in the West Midlands from 2003 – 2009. Notable graduates include;

Laura Howell | Asia Alfasi | Lee Bradley | Keith Burns | Rachael Stott | Mikey Ball | Michiru Murakowa | Jane McGuiness |

Almost a decade later CCC are running Create the Break to help launch the careers of promising artists working today. This could be you!
