Angry Robot is a relative newcomer when it comes to the world of Science Fiction publishing, but it has a remarkable record.
Founded in 2009, it took the the publishing house only two years to be recognised as a massive success with Zoo City by Lauren Beukes scooping the 2011 Arthur C Clarke Award, considered the highest honour in British Science Fiction.
Since then, their success has only continued. The awards and nominations they’ve had since then are countless, with highlights including a World Fantasy Award for the founder and winners of the Phillip K Dick, Prism and Endeavour awards among their publications.
However, they have recently announced that they are treading new ground with their latest release.
Liege-Killer: The Graphic Novel, written by Christopher Hinz, and illustrated by Jon Procter, will be released in June 2019 and marks the publisher’s first foray into the world of Graphic Novels.
Is this a one-off for Angry Robot? Or does it mark an intention to corner another market of the genre? Perhaps that all depends on the success of Liege-Killer, we’ll have to wait and see.
