 Kieron Gillen and Stephanie HansDie was honoured this week with the 2020 British Fantasy Award in the “Best Comic/Graphic Novel” category.

Established in 1972, the award has been handed out annually by the BFS ever since, and this is the fourth time in five years that an Image Comics series has won in the category. Previous Image titles that have taken home the award for this category include Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda’s Monstress volumes one and two, Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine DeLandro’s Bitch Planet, and Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples’ Saga.

It is also a timely reminder that this award-winning series is rolling the dice for the last time staring with Die #16 and ending in Die #20.

Die #16 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, May 5.
