The Phoenix is looking for the star of a new comic by Neill Cameron for its 300th issue this autumn!

It’s a weekly comic packed with stories, fascinating non-fiction and brain boosting puzzles

They’ve just launched a new Star in a Comic Competition to find the next big comic character!

The winner will see their character brought to life in a special 16-page comic illustrated by the amazing Neill Cameron, author of Mega Robo Bros and How to Make Awesome Comics. The new comic will start in Issue 300 and run for 4 weeks.

Here’s how you can enter The Phoenix’s Star in a Comic Competition…

  1. Get drawing and create a new comic character! This could be an alter ego, an awesome new hero/heroine or anything else, including you!
  2. Show what makes that character awesome – like a secret power or ability.
  3. All great comic characters have an arch-enemy. Draw them too!

Entries can be drawings, a written story or comic, or even a video!

The competition is open to all children and runs from 6 April to 31st May 2017.

The winner will receive a special bound copy of the strip, along with an annual subscription to The Phoenix for you or your school, plus a full set of Phoenix Presents books. Ten runners up will win also win a selection of Phoenix Presents books.
