Hall of Fame: Posy Simmonds

BCA Hall of Fame Logo

We announced back in October that the third inductee to the British Comic Awards Hall of Fame would be the one and only Posy Simmonds. At the 3rd Annual British Comic Awards ceremony held on Saturday 15th November 2014 we were very lucky to have Posy there in person to accept her award and speak with writer and BCA committee member Maura McHugh about her life in comics.

Here’s a video of Posy’s appearance at the BCA ceremony filmed by comics blogger Leonard Sultana aka An Englishman in San Diego.

What follows is a brief illustrated retrospective of Simmonds’ esteemed career thus far and a transcript of Posy and Maura’s conversation.

Thought Bubble is the UK's largest annual event which celebrates sequential art in all its forms, including everything from superheroes to independent and small press comics. They are an non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting comics and graphic novels as an important cultural art form. Taking place at a variety of venues across the city of Leeds, their aim is to cater to both long-term comic book fans and those who have never picked up a graphic novel before!
