ICAW: THIS WEEK IS IRISH COMIC APPRECIATION WEEK!!!
To celebrate the first birthday of the site, ICN has decided to launch ICAW, an annual event where fans and creators in the Irish Comic scene make a big push to support, promote and encourage Irish comics and Irish comic Creators. The idea is to spend one week of the year and really make a push on getting the word out about all the talent we have in the country. Annoy your friends, lend them your comics, talk about Irsih comics on twitter and facebook or anything else you can think of.
Please use the Twitter hashtag #ICAW to link to any reviews, shout outs, photos etc.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN IRISH COMICS APPRECIATION WEEK:
Whether you are a creator or a fan there is plenty of things that you can do to help out next week. But I have come up with a catchy easy to remember breakdown. It’s called the three P’s.
Buy an Irish comic this week. We will be putting up links everyday where you can buy Irish comics online, but there are also lots available in the comic shops which we will also highlight. If you already own every Irish comic buy one for a friend.
Tell your friends about Irish comics. Annoy them. Force them on them. Use The Twitter hash tag #ICAW so that everyone can see your efforts. Share some of the ICN posts on facebook. Do a review of an Irish comic and stick it on your blog. If you have a website add some Irish comic creators to your links section.
Have you been reading Irish comics for years but never told the creator how much you love their work? Have you been reading an Irish webcomic and never left an encouraging comment? Have you always been a huge fan of someone’s art or writing but never told them flat out? Next Week is the time to write that email, leave that comment or make that phone call!
OVER THE COMING WEEK ICN WILL BE HIGHLIGHT MANY AREAS OF THE COMIC INDUSTRY AND DETAILS OF HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT IT! SO STAY TUNED!
