Avery Hill are delighted to announce details of three of the new publications that we have coming out in 2015.
Between the Billboards & The Authoring of Architecture
By Owen D. Pomery
Release date: April 2015
A graphic novel collecting the six-part series Between the Billboards, alongside a series of comics and essays on The Authoring of Architecture.
Between the Billboards
Ebner has elected to live between two advertising boards, in a converted water tank in the centre of the city. What follows is a simple and cautionary tale, detailing the perils of shutting yourself off from the rest of the world. The main content is of small, apparently inconsequential happenings, often dark, sometimes amusing, but all way-markers on the road Ebner has chosen to walk.
The Authoring of Architecture
Through a series of short comics and essays, Owen explains how architectural ideas can be explored in graphic stories and the different ways they influence his work.
By Abraham Christie
Release date: June 2015
Swear Jar collects a series of short comics drawn between 2014 and 2015. Occupying themselves chiefly in flirting with neurosis and mundanity, they attempt to keep a gentle humour, whilst querying the value of one’s nemesis, failed friendships, and the inconveniences of finding oneself radioactive and powerless.
Abe Christie is a cartoonist and former art student based in London. He spends his days working a dead end job where he dreams of other lives he might have lived, then attempts to live them in comic form.
By Isabel Greenberg
Release date: Winter 2015/16
Avery Hill are delighted to announce that we will be publishing a new comic by the superstar writer/artist of The Encyclopedia of Early Earth, Isabel Greenberg. The story covers the early Greek Myths, focusing on the formation of the Earth, the birth of the Gods, Zeus’ battles with the giants, the creation of man, Prometheus and Pandora’s Box. No images or further details are available at present, as the project is in its very early stages, but suffice is to say that we’re stupidly excited about it!
