And lo they did deliver the next issue of their comics anthology, Reads. Perfect bound and glossy to the max, with more content than you can shake a particularly large stick at and room enough within to swing a cat in each hand if you’re so inclined. We’re calling this the best issue yet and by some distance. Marvel at the stunning cover by Coleen Campbell! Take pause for a moment of melancholic nostalgia from Tim Bird! Thrill to the penultimate action-packed edition of Hilary Harper from Steven Horry and I! Be scared out of your tenuous wits by the Wallace siblings! Get moist with anticipation at our preview of a new comic by Owen Pomery coming from AHP soon! Become even more confused by my epically mysterious life work, Metroland! Freak out as Luke Halsall and Staticgirl prove they can read your mind! And [...]
We’ve got a table at the marvellous DIY Cultures fair on Sunday 7th April. We’ll be premiering Reads Vol.3 along with all the other usual wonders such as Tim Bird’s Grey Area, Tiny Dancing and Close Up Masterchef! It’s at the Rich Mix in London’s “authentically unspoilt” Shoreditch and it all kicks off at lunch time (please bring me a sandwich). Even if the thought of getting a copy of Reads 3 straight from our sweaty, shaking hands doesn’t do it, there’s a whole heap of other stuff going on as well as outlined by the good people themselves below. And it’s free! Hope to see you there!

Turn your festivey Christmas spirit up to eleven and beyond with the new Avery Hill Publishing Christmas 2012 Podcast! Join your favourite three publishers Dave, Michael and Ricky as they bring more jingly, yuletidey, non-denominational joy to your winterville festival than Dickens riding a red-nosed reindeer around the set of the video to Wham’s Last Christmas whilst Mariah cheers on from the sidelines in THAT red outfit. Yes, you know the one I mean.
Herein you shall find our three not very wise men musing on the past! Thoughts turning to the bleak future! Unwanted gifts! Marc Bolan’s ghost! Men too drunk to remember they need to give the podcast an ending leading to me spending hours editing it trying to work out how to fit it all together! The C-Bomb (and no, that doesn’t stand for Christmas)!
You’re going to listen to this and you don’t [...]
