Build-A-Comic Anthology

The Redwood City Public Library is accepting submissions of comics to include in an anthology. The anthology will be published both digitally and in-print, and will be made available on the library’s website as well as within the collection itself.

In honor of the 150th Redwood City Anniversary, we encourage a “Redwood City" theme within your comics. This can include, but is not limited to: buildings, people, activities, places, etc.
