We’ve long talked on the increasing blurring of the artistic lines between what constitutes a children’s picture book and a comic, and pleasingly the move into comics from more and more book publishers seems to be continuing.

It’s more unusual to see a comic publisher move the other way, although UK publisher Nobrow Press has always been that little bit unusual, always very design led, and never just publishing comics. They recently unveiled their new imprint, a children’s publisher Flying Eye Books¬†and things look pretty rosy for the future. More kids comics and books of quality is never a bad thing.

There’s already a fair number of good looking picture books and comics, all of which can be seen at the Flying Eye site, but the very first Flying Eye Books release is Vivienne Schwartz‘s fantastic looking Welcome To Your Awesome Robot… comics, picture book, instructional text – very much the modern mashup of children’s literature! But when it looks this damn good, who’s going to complain?
