It's a big day today for our sister company The Phoenix Comic - they have been featured in the Guardian newspaper!
The Phoenix, the weekly story comic, took over the Guardian front page, which featured pictures from Daniel Hartwell and Neill Cameron's Pirates of Pangaea, Neill Cameron's How to Make Awesome Comics, and Adam Murphy's Corpse Talk - which is now available in The Phoenix Presents series!
The Guardian wrote that 'The Phoenix is a phenomenon: a beautiful, enjoyably silly story magazine for girls and boys – it’s advert-free and it’s the longest-lasting new launch in the market in decades.'
The Phoenix was given a large spread in g2, with a cover which also featured Corpse Talk, How to Make Awesome Comics, and Pirates of Pangaea, as well as Tamsin and the Deep by Neill Cameron and Kate Brown, and Squid Bits by Jess Bradley.
The Guardian commented that 'The Phoenix’s stories are beautifully drawn', and made it clear that 'there is also a sensible amount of silliness', a sentiment which we heartily endorse.
The article in its entirety can be read here.
They featured full pages of Phoenix strips, which have been collected in this slideshow on the Guardian website here.
We're very proud of our association with all of the fabulous creative talent that goes into the Phoenix, and if you would like to find out any more information about The Phoenix Comic, you can do so here.
But it doesn't stop there! Our The Phoenix Presents series has launched this summer, and the first three titles are now available!
The first titles in the series to launch were Bunny vs Monkey by Jamie Smart, Von Doogan and the Curse of the Golden Monkey by Lorenzo Etherington, and Corpse Talk by Adam Murphy - with many more coming soon! They can be bought directly from the Phoenix shop, where you can also pick up your own subscription to the weekly comic!
