As one of our favourite events from 2016, this year’s Bristol Comics and Zine Fair had sky high expectations, but they managed to more than managed to live up these high hopes thanks to an incredibly well run event packed full of exciting and diverse creators in a really fun and packed (and most importantly full!) venue.

Avery Hill continue their run of unique and exciting comics for 2017 with Something City, the debut book from Ellice Weaver. This landscape orientated collection of short stories focuses on the interconnected lives of a group of people living in the titular city and features everything from hip young things, to prisoners in a minimum security prison to nudists! We catch up with Ellice to find out more about the inspiration behind the stories as well as how she created the unique and colourful look.
