If you've had an eye on the independent graphic novel publisher scene, you'll have heard of Avery Hill Publishing. Established in 2012, the young publisher includes among its impressive catalog Tillie Walden's On a Sunbeam, Zoe Thorogood's The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott, and many more comics by up-and-coming creators. 2024 will see four new graphic novels added to that list.
Barking by Lucy Sullivan, a black and white story about depression and grief, is slated to come out February 27, followed by Safer Places by Kit Anderson, a new story collection about "isolation, memory, liminal spaces, and small magic," which will be released March 26. Infinite Wheatpaste vol.1 – Catalytic Conversions by Pidge, a brightly colored sci-fi adventure, is scheduled for May 30, while Disciples of the Soil by B. Mure, a fantasy about how plans for a new rail line threaten the land and the god who lies underneath it, will hit shelves July 9.
