Back in September, we brought you news of the British Comic Awards – The Young People’s Comic Awards (formerly known as the Leeds Graphic Novel Awards).
We are delighted to announce that Luke Pearson’s Hilda and the Midnight Giant took the award – congratulations to him and all the nominees.
Nelson, edited by Rob Davis and Woodrow Phoenix, was named Best Book, whilst John Allison’s Bad Machinery took the Best Comic Award.
Josceline Fenton won the Emerging Talent award for Hemlock and Raymond Briggs, he of Father Christmas, was the inaugural inductee into the British Comic Awards Hall of Fame.
What a talented bunch – hard work justly rewarded. The quality of UK publications has never been higher – long may it continue and I’m proud to champion it.
Can’t wait for next year.
