It is with great pleasure that I can announce that Paul Penna is one of the runners-up in this years ‘Top Cow’ Talent search.

“In previous years, Runners-Up have been given the chance to write 8 page backup strips for Top Cow. I think the plan is to do the same again this year. Which means, sometime next year, I’ll have a professional writing credit.” says Paul.

Paul has had three strips already published here at FQP:

Projections in FQ #20 (recently reprinted in 100% biodegradeable) with Artist Stewart Moore

Interpretations in FQ #23 with artist Jim Lavery
