British Comics Awards Nomination for Gill Hatcher!

BCA-Nominee-600pxw-300x300

Avery Hill Publishing is delighted to announce that ‘The Beginner’s Guide to Being Outside’ by  Gill Hatcher, has been shortlisted for the British Comic Awards in the category of Young People’s Comic Awards.
We couldn’t be more proud of Gill who has worked so hard and created a beautiful piece of work that is being enjoyed by readers of all ages.  The work the BCA is doing to introduce new reads to comics is invaluable and we’re delighted to be a part of that through Gill’s brilliant book.  The fact that it’s children who will be voting makes it even more special.  A few words from Gill:
“I’m absolutely delighted to be nominated for the BCA Young People’s Comic Awards, and it’s very exciting to see my name next to so many comic creators I admire. It might seem a little contradictory, but getting out and being in nature, and sitting down to read great comics are the two things I would love to see young people have more opportunities to experience. I hope my book can inspire both. It’s great that this category will be judged by school pupils, we’ll be getting feedback directly from our readers.”

The 3rd Annual British Comic Awards Ceremony will take place at 6pm on Saturday 15th November in the Royal Armouries Bury Theatre in Leeds as part of the Thought Bubble Festival.

“A beautifully paced example of Medaglia’s pensive and meditative narratives that are always worthy of your time – delicately constructed and reflective in delivery”

Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier

Avery Hill Publishing are over the moon to announce a very limited printing of Last Days Of Nobodies: Wheatfields After The Rain, by breakout writer and artist Mike Medaglia.

Limited to a run of just 100 copies, with each one signed and numbered by Medaglia, Last Days Of Nobodies: Wheatfields After The Rain is a graphic exploration of the last days in the life of Vincent van Gogh.

WFATR Pg6

Poetically written and drawn in loose, scratchy pencil, with Medaglia’s signature dramatic-yet-subtle colour work, it weaves the tale of an artist who lived and died as a nobody.

Originally published online, this is the first instalment in a three-part series that explores the last days of now famous artists and writers who died in obscurity.

Parts two and three will focus on the poet Emily Dickson and the writer Franz Kafka, and will be released online in summer 2015.
