Gosh! Exclusive Bookplate Edition: Shoplifter

If you’re a fan of lavish visuals, relate-able characters, and the colour pink Michael Cho’s Shoplifter is a book you need to read. And if you need any further incentive we’re proud to announce our very own Gosh! Bookplate Edition, with an all-new exclusive piece of art created for the occasion.

Shoplifter by Michael Cho bookplate edition available at Gosh! Comics London

Corrina Park used to have big plans. Studying English literature in college, she imagined writing a successful novel and leading the idealized life of an author. After graduation, she moved to a big city and took a job at an advertising agency—just to pay off her student loans. Now she’s worked in the same office for five years and the only thing she’s written is . . . copy. She longs for companionship (other than her cat),gets no satisfaction from her job, and feels numbed by the monotony of a life experienced through a series of screens. But whenever she shoplifts a magazine from the corner store near her apartment, she feels a little, what? A little more alive. Yet Corrina knows there must be something more to life, and she faces the same question as does everyone of her generation: how to find it?

The signed bookplate is A6, limited to 200 copies, and has been printed on a high quality card. The book costs £14.99 and is available to mail order; postal quotes are available on request so if you’d like to arrange that with us drop a line to info@goshlondon.com.

Gosh! Exclusive Bookplate Edition: Some Comics by Stephen Collins

Some Comics by Stephen Collins is the new book by, well, Stephen Collins, collecting over 100 of his smaller strips asking important questions like ‘What the hell do plastic bags think about all day?’ We’re always excited to see new published work from Stephen, and so we’re very happy indeed to announce our Gosh! Exclusive Bookplate Edition of the new title.

Stephen has gone from strength to strength over the last few years, winning the Jonathan Cape Graphic Short Story Prize, being shortlisted for Waterstone’s Book of the Year and winning the Edinburgh Literary Festival’s 9th Art Award, and you can also regularly enjoy his work in the Guardian’s Weekend magazine. Happily, as well as the bookplate Stephen has produced a Gosh! exclusive giclee print of one of his Guardian strips. The run is limited to just 10 copies, so you’ll need to be quick if you want to get your hands on one.

James Turner will be celebrating the release of his new book Star Cat here at Gosh!

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!

James Turner Star Cat comic book launch Gosh! Comics London

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.
