On Saturday the 8th of December we’ve got British comics dude Warren Pleece (one half of the Pleece brothers) in the shop signing copies of his new book The Great Unwashed – a hardcover anthology 25 years in the making. Here’s the spiel:
The Great Unwashed by Gary and Warren Pleece, published by Escape Books, brings together comically poignant and darkly sarcastic stories of washed-up comedians, prancing rock stars, obsessive compulsive collectors, terrible teenage poets, dead souls, dysfunctional double-acts and decaying sea-side splendour, all into one ‘bumper-packed’, ink laden graphic novel.
Featuring works originally seen in their very own comic mag, Velocity, Escape, Crisis and Revolver magazines, alongside previously unpublished and new work spanning over twenty years, the Pleece Brothers bring you their own slanted take on popular (and unpopular) culture, in glorious black and white and worn out watercolours.
There’s a preview over at Warren’s site.
If you’d like to reserve a copy or want to arrange a signed book/mail order send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll sort one out for you.
