The Gosh! Authority 15/03/17

Hello!

Okay so deep breath as we dive into our gargantuan run down of events coming up this week! Friday March 17th we’re joined by an incredible line-up of Image creators (Jordie Bellaire, Warren Ellis, Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, Declan Shalvey and Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson) who will be taking part in a live panel discussion from 7:30 – 9PM.

Two things to note in regards to the event. Firstly, there will not be a signing session before or after the talk, however Jordie, Declan & Eric will back with us the following day as part of a mega signing event occurring on Saturday the 18th March, which we will tell you ALL about in a moment.

Secondly, due to huge interest in the talk we have had to ticket the event. As of this going live we are totally SOLD OUT.  So sorry for any disappointment folks! There is a possibility we may have limited returns on the night, but we can’t guarantee entry for non-ticket holders unfortunately.

As if that wasn’t enough, we’ve got a number of signings happening throughout the afternoon of Saturday the 18th March, so come on down! We’ll have Jordie Bellaire, Simon Gane, Emi Lenox, John McCrea, Tradd Moore, Tom Muller, Sean Phillips, Alison Sampson, Declan Shalvey, Si Spurrier, Eric Stephenson, Christian Ward, Caspar Wijngaard & Dan Watters all here to say hi and scribble in your books for you.

These talented folks will be signing together in small groups through the afternoon, with the roster as follows:
1pm – 2pm
John McCrea
Sean Phillips
Allison Sampson
2pm – 3pm
Simon Gane
Emi Lenox
Eric Stephenson
3pm – 4pm
Jordie Bellaire
Tom Muller
Declan Shalvey
Si Spurrier
4pm – 5pm
Tradd Moore
Christian Ward
Caspar Wijngaard
Dan Watters
We’ll have a limit of 6 items per customer per signing session, excluding anything you buy in store on the day. So if there are 3 creators signing, you could bring 2 items for each creator, or 3 each for two of them, or 6 for one of them, and so on, plus anything you buy in store on the day.

STILL not enough?

We’re very excited to announce that on top of our Friday night discussion panel and Saturday signing sessions on the 17th and 18th of March, we’re also going to have five extremely limited edition bookplates produced especially for the occasion!

Each of the plates is being issued to tie in with our Image Anniversary events, and is strictly limited to just 50 copies each. For more information, head on over to our blog here.

All the plates are available to preorder on our webstore now, but we will be holding back some copies for sale on Saturday the 18th!

Big thanks to all the great folks at Image Comics for giving us the opportunity to help celebrate their 25th Anniversary. Happy birthday, and here’s to many, many more!

FACE Launch Party with Rosario Villajos

Rosario Villajos will be here to celebrate the launch of her new Fanfare / Ponent Mon graphic novel FACE on Friday the 24th March, from 7-9pm!

We’re very pleased to be able to host the launch of Rosario’s new graphic novel, a meditation on identity, image and our obsession with how each influences and reflects the other.

Let’s face it, what is it that identifies you to those who surround you? Your lovers, your friends, your colleagues, acquaintances or even strangers? What attracts or repulses them? Is it what they look at? Or what they see? What do YOU see when you look into a mirror? Creator Rosario Villajos looks closely at this topic and wonders about life without a face.

Spanish-born Rosario Villajos is a multi-disciplined, ideas-led graphic designer and illustrator who graduated from the ELISAVA School of design and Engineering in Barcelona. Since 2011 she has been based in London, where she has worked in the the film industry, as well as undertaking a wide variety of work experience including installations and arts exhibitions as an independent artist. FACE is her first graphic novel.

Rosario will be here from 7-9pm on Friday March 24th, so come on down for beers and bubbles to share a toast and get your copy signed. If you can’t make it but would like to arrange a reservation or mail order, email us on info@goshlondon.com and we’ll get you sorted.
