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. Its a real honour to be selected for this award, and it genuinely means an awful lot to me. The work you’re doing in supporting British comics is hugely important, and I’m sure has contributed to the growth of the comics scene over the last few years. For me personally, seeing self-published, and small press comics being taken more seriously, and and being considered alongside well-established publishers has been a great inspiration.

I’d like to say a massive thank you to Avery Hill Publishing for all their support. They do an enormous amount of work behind the scenes – from help preparing pages for print to promoting and selling the comics at conventions. An extra special thanks to Dave, my editor from Avery Hill, who literally went the extra mile on From The City To The Sea, and walked with me form Upminster in London to Southend-On-Sea, which formed the basis of this comic.

A quick thanks to my wife, April, who puts up with me drawing in the evenings and at weekends when I should be spending time with the family. I’d like to share this award with you -you’ve helped make it possible – thank you!

Thanks again to the organisers and judges of this years awards. I hope events like this help raise the profile of comics in the media, and draw in new readers. Thanks!


Buttertubs by Donya Todd

Buttertubs Cover RGB

Buttertubs is a dog who always wants to save the dudes and damsels in distress, but who always mucks it up on account of his inability to stop sweating butter.

Running becomes flailing and crashing, everything he touches becomes greasy and strangely flammable, and even simple tasks become fraught with slippery danger.


His nemesis, The Hotdog Queen, needs to watch her back, his friend Hester is always trying to stop his foolish escapades, and there are many, many damsels in distress.

All in a day’s work for Buttertubs!

I Love This Part by Tillie Walden



Two girls in a small town in the USA kill time together as they try to get through their days at school.

They watch videos, share earbuds as they play each other songs and exchange their stories. In the process they form a deep connection and an unexpected relationship begins to develop.


In her follow up to the critically acclaimed The End of Summer, Tillie Walden tells the story of a small love that can make you feel like the biggest thing around, and how it’s possible to find another person who understands you when you thought no-one could.
