Whizz!, Rosie and Jacinda: Demon Cloud, and Tempo Lush Tales.

He’s excited to bring out new volumes of both fairytale manga Rosie and Jacinda (which he created with Zarina Liew and is now also joined by artists Chie Kutsuwada, Inko, Jade Sarson and Francesca Dare) and his webcomic collection Lucy the Octopus.
He’s also worked with illustrator Sally-Anne Hickman to create the pre-school children’s comic/picture book Bang! Crash! Whizz!
Finally, Richy has collaborated with a host of artists and creators for the Tempo Lush Tales anthology, including Matt Boyer, Francesca Cassavetti, Martin Eden, Tim Hassan, Steve Horry, Inko, Chie Kutsuwada, Mike Medaglia, Aaron Murphy, Van Nim, Karen Rubins, Paul Shinn, Keara Stewart and Steven Walsh.”

You’ll be able to get your hands on all four titles on the night, and Richy will be around signing copies and strumming away on his guitar.
You’ll also have a chance to meet  plenty of his collaborators who will also be happy to sign copies of their respective works.
The party starts at 7pm on Friday the 3rd of October.
If you can’t make it to the event but would like a signed copy then get in touch with us via info@goshlondon.com and we can make the arrangements.

Star Cat poster launch party Gosh! Comics London

Join Captain Spaceington and the intrepid crew of the Star Cat as they boldly blunder into every possible comic misadventure on this side of the event horizon – and beyond!

Featuring: Science Officer Plixx (green, tentacled and easily confused), Robot1 (nowhere near as clever as he thinks he is), and the very mysterious ‘Pilot’ (quite possibly much cleverer than everyone thinks he is…) PLUS… Stupid aliens! Robo-chickens! Intergalactic ice-cream! And the devious cunning and villainy of the very evil and really quite badly-behaved Dark Rectangle!

Star Cat first appeared in the pages of our favourite kids comic,  The Phoenix, a weekly comics anthology; if you’re not already grabbing a copy for your children (and yourself!) then you’re missing out! James has also written for Mameshiba; if you’re unfamiliar with the tiny trivia telling bean dogs we’d recommend you go look now!

James will be hanging around the shop on night to sign copies and to raise a glass in honour of Star Cat Book 1. The party starts at 7pm sharp on Thursday the 9th of October. If you’d like us to arrange a signed on your behalf then drop a line to info@goshlondon.com and we’ll sort that out.

Gosh! Exclusive Bookplate Edition: Gardens of Glass & Mutiny Bay

Remember the time we had a launch party for two books and an art fair all in one night? Then you’ll remember that both Mutiny Bay and Garden’s of Glass come with Gosh! Exclusive bookplates featuring artwork by Antoine Cossé and Lando respectively.

Gardens of Glass bookplate Gosh! Comics London Mutiny Bay Bookplate | Gosh London Comics

Mutiny Bay is Antoine Cosse’s second book with Breakdown Press and his most substantial work to date. Gardens of Glass, by Lando, is another really stunning piece of work. We’ve always been huge fans of Lando’s meticulously detailed penmanship and the chance to see his work on a much longer scale is really exciting. As well as running his own publishing endevour, Decadence Comics (check it, these guys have the sweetest sweatshirts on the street), Lando has also been previously published by Breakdown Press and everybody’s favourite Swedes, Peow! Studio.

Both creators have signed their bookplates, limited to 200 copies each. As always we offer a mail order service for customers who are unable to visit us in person. Postage quotes are on request so feel free to send an email to info@goshlondon.com and we can answer any questions you might have.

Capers! #1: The World of the X-Men

Capers! is a new regular meet-up at Gosh! that will explore and celebrate the world of super-heroes.


Each month we’ll spotlight a different character or team and, with the help of our audience and guest speakers, break down their history and share our favourite moments.

Our very own Hannah and Steve will lead things off with what they’ve read and enjoyed then throw it open to the group to pick out their favourite characters and storylines .

We’ll share the best websites, podcasts, and books about the characters in question and talk about their appearances on TV and in film.

At the end of the evening we’ll close things out with a little pop quiz, with the winner being given the responsibility of picking out a random envelope that will contain the subject of the next month’s meet up!

To kick things off we’ll be looking at Marvel’s merry mutants and exploring every corner of the X-Universe, from Muir Island to Madripoor and talking Morlocks, Magistrates, and Mutates as we go.

Join us on the third Wednesday of every month at our not so secret headquarters from 7 till 9 and share your favourite superpowers, secret identities, and sidekicks.

See you there!

Inside Out: New York is packed to bursting with iconic New York landmarks, pigeons, and taxi cabs. At 2 metres it’s in an impressive insight to ‘the city that never sleeps’ and is Josh’s first children’s book. When he’s not sketching the Brooklyn Bridge you can find Josh teaching at the School of Visual Arts, filling in as Art Director for the New York Times, being nominated for Grammy’s, or hanging out with his dog Porkchop.

Josh will be in conversation with Gosh!’s own Steve Walsh, discussing all aspects of his concertina book and sharing a few of his favourite spots in New York. Afterwards he’ll be hanging around, signing copies of the book, and enjoying a beer or five.

Festivities start at 7pm on Friday the 19th of September. If you can’t make it along on the night and would like Josh to sign a copy for you then drop us a line via info@goshlondon.com and we can make those arrangements. We’ll see you there, and in the meantime, hot dogs on Steve anybody?

Jamie Coe Art Schooled Signing

We’ll be celebrating the launch of Nobrow’s newest offering Art Schooled with an old fashioned launch party.

Art Schooled book launch | Gosh Comics London

Created by recent Central St Martins graduate Jamie Coe, Art Schooled offers insight to the highs and lows of a struggling art student; never quite ‘getting’ the work of his peers and desperately trying to win the girl of his dreams. The protagonist, Daniel Stope, is a self-proclaimed  misfit whose dreams of being a painter seem all but crushed. With a move to the big city behind him and four years of studying ahead, Daniel must navigate the obstacle course of design briefs and life drawing classes and maybe, if he can survive it, he’ll get to be an intern when it’s over…

Jamie Coe Art Schooled available at Gosh! Comics London

As we’ve come to expect from UK publishers Nobrow the book smells good enough to eat, is printed on gorgeous paper stock, and has the prettiest (and most atmospheric) palette we’ve seen in a while. Jamie’s artwork is expressive and his vignettes hilarious, so if you’ve not already bagged a copy now is the time to do it!

Jamie will be about on the night, signing copies of the book and regaling us all with his own tales of student life. The party starts at 7pm, September 27th and there will be drinks a plenty. And just in case you don’t know what he looks like, we’ve found this archive image of Jamie.
