Manly Boys & Comely Girls by Gareth Brookes & Steve Tillotson



Manly Boys and Comely Girls, the acclaimed guides to modern existence by Gareth Brookes (The Black Project, The Land of My Heart Chokes on Its Own Abundance) and Steve Tillotson (Banal Pig, Untitled Ape’s Epic Adventure), are now available to buy!

First self-published by the creators back in 2009, Manly Boys is a pastiche of boys’ comics from the dim and distant past, when all an English boy had to care about was playing cricket with his chums, and getting one up on Johnny Foreigner whenever possible.

It features advice on matters such as why ‘Self-Touching is Bad’ and ‘How to Tattoo Yourself’, as well as everything else a young boy needs to know. Although please don’t show it to any actual young boys.

The long awaited companion to Manly BoysComely Girls is the essential guide on how to be a lady, written by two men in their mid-thirties. We say again – essential.

So finally we can find out about ‘Great Women of History and Their Recipes’, ‘England’s Most Eligible Bachelors’ and answer the age old question – ‘What About Spinsterhood?’.

Truly, our nation’s youth is saved!

Both are printed in A5 size across 32 pages with full colour covers, and come safely ensconced within a custom made protective sheath.

“Melissa pushed me down the stairs. I don’t want to be her friend anymore.”

“Who is Melissa?”

“The monster that lives in our walls.”

Avery Hill are delighted to announce the publication on 14th November 2014 of EdieOP’s first full-length graphic novel.  ‘Maleficium’ is the story of Huxley Leighton-Lomax; an aspiring wizard who should know better than to feed the dark forces that lurk in the corners of his home.  Will Huxley know enough magic when it’s up to him to save the day?
