The mighty folks at Avery Hill Publishing are about to release a collection of the work of Simon Moreton.
Simon is a real stand out talent in British Comics. His work is personal and experimental. He makes amazing use of the autobiographical storytelling format that combines the best of European, American and Japanese comics. He makes use of melancholy, real life pacing and has a wonderful sense of space. His panels are often beautifully framed and it's great to see it all collected in one volume.
This collection covers the creators output between 2011 and 2012. The content mostly comes from three out of print issues of 'Smoo' (his small press project) but also includes work from difficult to find anthologies as well as all new art and text pieces.
Simon comes from Bristol in the UK and I urge you to seek out his work. It's all about telling stories and feeling resonance - he does this triumphantly. Beautiful, painful and brave it's a gorgeous package from Avery Hill who are quietly taking over the world.
