The British Comic Awards committee this morning announced the shortlist for this year’s prizes, and it’s good news for Mark Stafford and David Hine, and also for Glyn Dillon. The Man Who Laughs and The Nao of Brown are both shortlisted in the ‘Best Book’ category. The shortlist was whittled down from hundreds of eligible titles by a committee of 9 industry professionals and academics. The winners will be decided by a judging panel that includes comedians Lenny Henry and Josie Long, and the ceremony will be held at the Thought Bubble convention in Leeds on Saturday 23rd November.
The full list of this year’s nominees is available on the British Comic Awards website. Congratulations to those who made shortlist, and good luck to Mark, David and Glyn. Our fingers are firmly crossed!
