When is a launch party more than a launch party? When you’re launching four books in one night! Tempo Lush will be taking over Gosh! for the evening to celebrate the release of new titles: Lucy the Octopus: Any Less Than Freak, Bang! Crash! Whizz!, Rosie and Jacinda: Demon Cloud, and Tempo Lush Tales.
Launched in 2007 Tempo Lush has published a whole heap of books including Delicate Axiom, Bunch, and the Tempo Lush Mini-Comics range that includes Lucy the Octopus and Govinda the Meditating Rabbit.
The man behind Tempo Lush, Richy K. Chandler, has written for comic adaptations of Adventure Time, Wallace & Gromit and Almost Naked Animals, contributed to Wu Wei and Score & Script and is the originator of WASP (Webcomic Artist Swap Project).
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.
