Gosh! Exclusive Bookplate Edition: Giant Days

Giant Days Volume 1 is coming to Gosh, and we have an exclusive bookplate by the incredible John Allison to celebrate the launch!

BOOMBOX_GiantDays_v1_TP

We’ve been fans of John Allison’s work for years, following his wonderful webcomics Bad Machinery and Scary Go Round. John’s earned a large, loyal collection of readers that have followed his work daily for the past 12 years, and John’s latest BOOM! Box series Giant Days takes his charming sense of humour combined with art work by Disney artist Lissa Treiman to create an entertaining, slice-of-life look at three friends who have just left home to go to university. In fact, the series has been such a hit, Boom have recently announced that it will now be ongoing!

‘Susan, Esther, and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends. Now, away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of hand-wringing boys, “personal experimentation,” influenza, mystery-mold, nu-chauvinism, and the willful, unwanted intrusion of “academia,” they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive. Going off to university is always a time of change and growth, but for Esther, Susan, and Daisy, things are about to get a little weird.’

The paranormal crime saga Wolf hit the shelves in July and we were lucky enough to have series designer Tom Muller and artist Matt Taylor here at Gosh! for it’s release. We’re big fans of Matt’s beautiful illustrations, so much so Matt’s second printing of The Great Salt Lake is the latest in our range of Gosh! published books!

Image says ‘Bestselling new star writer ALES KOT teams up with white-hot artist MATT TAYLOR and DEADLY CLASS colorist extraordinaire LEE LOUGHRIDGE for an all-new ONGOING SERIES! The crime noir thrills and characters reminiscent of True Detective meet with mythical stakes worthy of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman in this original fantasy/horror/crime saga for mature readers. Antoine Wolfe, a hard-boiled paranormal detective with a death wish, has to cope with sudden responsibility for an orphaned teenage girl who might be the key to the impending apocalypse, California-style.’ 

Matt creates beautiful illustrations with a nod to classic 50’s and 60’s comic books with a splash of Americana and we’re incredibly happy that he agreed to create this beautiful bookplate for us!

Craig, creator of Goodbye Chunky Rice, Habibi and Blankets, has brought all his warmth, wit and formidable talent together to create an amazing all ages book: Space Dumplins! It takes the themes of family, friendship, and loyalty and places them into an intergalactic adventure, complete with wacky aliens, brilliant spaceships, and even a bit of reflective commentary on the state of our environment.

‘For Violet Marlocke, family is the most important thing in the whole galaxy. So when her father goes missing while on a hazardous job, she can’t just sit around and do nothing. To get him back, Violet throws caution to the stars and sets out with a group of misfit friends on a quest to find him. But space is big and dangerous, and she soon discovers that her dad has been swallowed by a giant, planet-eating whale. With her father’s life on the line, nothing is going to stop Violet from trying to rescue him and keep her family together.’

Gosh! Exclusive Bookplate Edition: Wytches TP Vol 1

It’s in the trees! It’s coming!

Wytches_Vol1-1

Hilarious* Kate Bush / Night of the Demon references aside, we’re very happy to announce the Gosh! Exclusive Bookplate Edition of Wytches Volume One, by Scott Snyder and Jock!

*sarcasm

wytches2-e1415659435623

One of the best new books of the past year, Wytches is about, well, as you might have guessed, witches. But not the ones you’re accustomed to. Something evil is lurking in the woods and it’s ancient, hungry and watching. The hopeful Rooks family have moved to the remote town of Litchfield to escape their traumatic past, only to find the chances of making a fresh start grow slimmer and slimmer.

wytches-1-02

Writer Snyder says ‘Forget everything you know about witches. Because the truth is, witches, real witches, are something much, much scarier. Something you’ve never seen before. I don’t want to spoil anything, but let’s leave it at this—you’ll never think of witches the same way once you see Jock’s designs. As for what you thought were witches? A wytch? A real wytch? Imagine, if you will, a bestial, primal creature that lives deep in the woods, waiting. We know nothing about them—they’re rarely seen. They are bigger than we are, stronger and smarter than we are, and they are gruesome and predatory. So, forget what you think you know. Leave the broomsticks for the kids. No magic, just horror.

Jock has been kind enough to design us a killer exclusive bookplate! Limited to 250 copies, each bookplate is printed on high quality card and signed by Jock.

Gosh! Exclusive Bookplate Edition: Bacchus Omnibus Edition

We are extremely excited to announce another great exclusive bookplate edition, this time from none other than comics legend Eddie Campbell for the release of Bacchus Omnibus Edition Volume One.

Eddie Campbell is best known for his collaboration with Alan Moore on the epic graphic novel From Hell  and the semi-autobiographical Alec: The Years Have Pants. Eddie creates wonderful scratchy pen-and-ink style illustrations and – at long last reprinted – Bacchus is a great example of his work. In Bacchus gods and myths of ancient Greece are brought to the modern world, and they’ve made themselves at home. Expect action, comedy, suspense, and whole lot of wine.

 

 

Top Shelf say ‘In Bacchus, the visionary behind From Hell (with Alan Moore) and Alec: The Years Have Pants presents his version of “an American-style comic book,” filtered through his own brilliant, whimsical, and wide-ranging sensibility. With a fine blend of action, comedy, suspense, and an ear for a great story, Bacchus brings the gods and myths of ancient Greece to modern life, as if they had never left. Nearly 600 pages, this deluxe volume collects the first half of the Bacchus saga (including Immortality Isn’t Forever, The Gods of Business, Doing the Islands with Bacchus, The Eyeball Kid: One Man Show, and Earth, Water, Air & Fire) with new notes and commentary by the author. — a 560-page softcover graphic novel with French flaps (color cover, b&w interiors), 7 1/2″ x 10″ (portrait)

Eddie has designed an incredible Gosh! exclusive bookplate to coincide with the launch of Bacchus Omnibus Edition Volume One and we just love it!
