Spring 2016 Releases Out Now!


A City Inside by Tillie Walden

Shifting between the everyday and the surreal, A City Inside recounts one woman’s life from childhood home, to the first love that she will never forget, to the creation of the idea of herself that she can grow old with and the home that she can grow old in.

Walden’s follow up to the lyrical I Love This Part is a poetic exploration of the process of growing older; the journey towards finding out who you are and building a life for yourself.

It is a universal story of how we don’t just come-of-age once, but many times throughout our lives.

56 black and white pages with colour covers, 165mm x 210mm.

Tim Bird’s Grey Area Wins Best Comic at the British Comic Awards!!!


We’re massively proud of Tim for his achievement in winning Best Comic of 2015 at the British Comic Awards for Grey Area: From the City to the Sea.

Tim was the first person to ever approach us about contributing to our anthology, Tiny Dancing, back when we had just started out, and Grey Area 1 was the first book we ever published that was entirely by a single creator.

The journey that took our creative relationship with Tim from there to here, in just a few years, is one of the things we’re proudest of in our history to date.

Congratulations Tim!

We’ll now hand over to the man himself as we print his acceptance speech in its entirety.

Firstly – thanks to you Adam and all the team at the British Comic Awards. […]
