The shortlist for Myriad Editions’ First Graphic Novel Competition was announced on Monday. I’m over the moon to be able to say that I’m one of the seven shortlisted entries with my graphic memoir-in-progress The Facts of Life. I’m in good company too, along with friend and comics creator Thom Ferrier, whose entry The Enlightenment of Iwan James is also shortlisted.
There were over 70 entries judged by Bryan Talbot, Ian Rankin, Steve Bell, Ed Hillyer, Hannah Berry and Corinne Pearlman.
The winning graphic novel will be announced on 21st Jan 2012 at the First Fictions Festival in Brighton.
