Hello comics world!

“My name is Tom.
And I’m very happy that you’re at the very right place! The Thomas Orrow Award – Comics Competition 2017 is the name of our brand new international call for all comics creators (the living ones!) and their extraordinary artistic stuff. The same goes for the comics publishers (who never give up!) and their extraordinary published releases. Right, and no worries. We make no differences, we just use them well. This call is open for diverse comic topics or comic media, and in the same way also for various types of comic publications. In the end, this is all about just how you can enjoy yourselves! No doubt, the world of comics is so crazy but huge for everyone.” Yours, Thomas Orrow

I’m a rare breed
