Hilda the Series Premieres Today on Netflix!

We’re so happy to announce that you can now stream the all-new Hilda series on Netflix! Yesterday, creator of the original Hilda graphic novel series Luke Pearson announced the original music by Grimes featured in the title sequence of the Netflix series.

This morning, the Nobrow team in New York screened the first two episodes for 125 kids from Brooklyn schools at the Brooklyn Public Library. The response was a lot of laughter, and questions about “what happens next?”

 

Sam Arthur, CEO and Co-founder of Nobrow, was excited to say: “Seeing Hilda develop from first sketches to first comic, to first graphic novel series, to TV show airing worldwide on Netflix has been a huge privilege. I’m so proud of what Luke Pearson, Nobrow/Flying Eye, and Silvergate Media have achieved. The last 10 years have been an incredible ride, and I have a feeling it’s just the beginning.”

Check out hildabooks.com for information on getting your own copies of the graphic novels or the first TV tie-in book, Hilda and the Hidden People. And don’t forget to get settled in to watch the entire first season!

Congratulations to Hamish Steele: Winner of the 2018 Russ Manning Promising Newcomer Award

We’re so excited to congratulate Hamish Steele, creator of Pantheon and Deadendia (coming out August 7 in the US and Canada, and available now in the UK), for winning Comic Con’s 2018 Russ Manning Promising Newcomer Award!

The Russ Manning Award has been given out annually at the San Diego Comic-Con since 1982, and is presented to a comics artist who, early in their career, shows a superior knowledge and ability in the art of creating comics. Russ Manning is best known for his work on the Tarzan and Star Wars newspaper strips and the Magnus, Robot Fighter comic book. Hamish had a co-winner this year—the talented Pablo Tunica (TMNT Universe) and his fellow nominees were Sean Rubin (Bolivar), Nina Vakueva (Hi-Fi Fight Club/Heavy Vinyl), and Campbell Whyte (Home Time). With all of this talent, we’re so proud of Hamish for this win, and we can’t wait for the quirky, genuine characters of Deadendia to come to your bookshelf.
