British Comic Awards 2014 Winners Announced

The Third Annual British Comic Awards took place in Leeds this weekend as part of this year’s Thought Bubble Festival and the winners of five categories were announced.

Congratulations again to all the nominees for making the final Shortlist.

The organising committee says the voting was so close this year that each of the five judges chose a different nominee for Best Book (the winner was decided by taking into account second place votes) so congratulations to the titles and creators who made the final selection.
