Cue the menacing laughter! The creepy underscore! And the terrifying flap of ….. flippers? It gives us great pleasure to announce that Evil Emperor Penguin is coming to Gosh! and we’ll be celebrating in style with Laura Ellen Anderson on October 1st with a launch party from 7- 9pm.
You’re all probably aware about just how much we love The Phoenix, a stellar weekly kid’s magazine which features a range of the best all-ages comics available, from all kinds of wonderful creators, all compiled into a single issue each week! We can’t urge you enough to pick it up for your little comic fans at home. We’re particularly head over heels for Laura’s Phoenix strip, Evil Emperor Penguin. Laura is a children’s book author & illustrator, who one day drew a tiny menacing penguin in a cape as a silly doodle and lo and behold, Evil Emperor Penguin was born! The comic stars a tiny Penguin who never gives up hope, even though every one of his world-dominating plans seems to fall through.
‘Far away in the icy stretches of Antarctica where the land is white for as far as the eye can see, dwells a warm and cuddly, kind hearted penguin…….. or so he would have you believe. This is no ordinary penguin. This is Evil Emperor Penguin. Main aim in life: to take over the world. With the help of his assistant a very well to-do, sharply dressed octopus ‘number 8’, evil penguin attempts to fulfill his quest for world domination. Will he ever succeed?’
Laura will be coming down to the shop on the night to sign books and raise a glass in honor of Evil Emperor Penguin. The party starts at 7pm on Thursday the 1st of October. If you’d like us to arrange a signed copy on your behalf then drop a line to email@example.com and we’ll sort that out. Postage in the UK is a flat rate of £5 and quotes for international shipping are available on request.
