Extracts from Britten and Brulightly by Hannah Berry plus Fried Egg and Cherry Cake by Sally-Anne Hickman

Concluding ‘women in comics month’ on the show, Alex Fitch talks to a couple of illustrators about their genre bending work. Hannah Berry‘s debut graphic novel Britten and Brülightly tells the tale of a harried private detective with the nickname of ‘The Heartbreaker’ whose final case sees his career catch up with him, in a terrific comic book that combines the tenets of noir with gentle surrealism – his confidant is his pet teabag, Stewart – and assured cinematic visuals. Sally-Anne Hickman is a self-published comic book artist and writer whose work ranges from affectionate parodies of pop culture icons such as Spider-man and the Powerpuff Girls to intricate diary comics that give an intimate portrayal of the self-publishing world, packaged as collectible items with textured covers that incorporate fur, metallic sparkle and googly puppet eyes.
