Matthew Swan’s Parsley Girl: Carrots
Parsley Girl is having a tough day. She’s just had a tooth taken out by her super weird dentist, her best friend Margiotta Moonshine might be stuck in her mundane decorating job forever, her Robot Thomas is feeling obsolete, and there’s a mysterious puppy watching her every move. So it couldn’t be a worse time for a magical portal to open in her kitchen, allowing hordes of vegetable villains intent on vengeance to invade her village!
Rachael Smith’s Artificial Flowers
A graphic novella about a young woman living in London, trying to start her career as an artist – and the frustrations and rewards that come from the ways that we choose to express ourselves.
Tillie Walden’s A City Inside
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.
Highlight Of the Comiket
Avery Hill Publishing: Reads
This final instalment of Avery Hill’s anthology showcase Reads kicks off with another terrifying modern fairytale from Edie OP – “The Night-Time Ice Cream Man”. Next up is the last part of Miller and Bird’s exploration of the life of Alfred Hitchcock; focusing on his ‘British Thriller Sextet’ and leaving him on the verge of his triumphs in Hollywood. Owen Pomery delivers the final showdown between “The Megatherium Club” and their scientific arch-rival… of course involving childish swearing and nudity. Ending this issue is Halsall & Bird’s ‘The Bullpen’, a tale of professional betrayal featuring characters not at all based upon the three main architects of the Silver Age of comics.
