Raymond Briggs – author and illustrator of The Snowman, When The Wind Blows, Fungus The Bogeyman and many others – has been made the first entrant to the British Comic Awards Hall of Fame.

Giles Coren has attracted the ire of comic-book creators and readers with a typically provocative piece for The Spectator, in which he argues that literary prizes and “karmicbwurks” shouldn’t mix (he is referring to this recent story).
