The winners of the third annual British Comics Awards were announced during the Thought Bubble fest and they are:
Best Comic – The Wicked + The Divine #1 by Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, Matt Wilson and Clayton Cowles (Image Comics)
Best Book – The Encyclopedia of Early Earth by Isabel Greenberg (Jonathan Cape)
Young People’s Comic Award – Hilda and The Black Hound by Luke Pearson (Flying Eye Books)
Emerging Talent – Alison Sampson for her artwork on Genesis (Image Comics) and ‘Shadows’ from the In The Dark anthology (IDW)

I can’t think of five better books and people to represent Comics 2014. A conversation between Simmonds and Maura McHUgh will be posted on the BCA site in a few days.
