Artist and designer team Will Tempest & Tom Muller are coming to Gosh! to sign copies of their brand new Image series (in collaboration with writer Ales Kot) Material, so cancel your plans and mark your calendars!
Material is a brand new thought-provoking suspense series looking into the fleeting state of humanity and we cant wait to delve into these fascinating stories about everyday people. A man comes home from Guantanamo Bay, irrevocably changed. An actress receives an offer that can revive her career. A boy survives a riot and becomes embedded within a revolutionary movement. A philosopher is contacted by a being that dismantles his beliefs. Look around you. Everything is material.
Ales Kot says “It’s a story that begins in America and spreads everywhere. It defies easy categorization. Our chief aim is to be truthful about LIFE as it is NOW through a vast VARIETY of explored HUMAN EXPERIENCE. Material also marks the return of 9-panel grid as a standard tool in a comic series. Expect backmatter files by excellent artists, writers, journalists and other beings. Expect new readers coming to comic book stores asking for it. Ideally, Material will be our ‘Cerebus’—in that we intend to keep this one going for a long, long time.”
Will and Tom will be signing copies of Material on Wednesday the 27th of May between 6pm and 7pm. If you can’t make it along but would like to get your hands on a copy then drop us an email via firstname.lastname@example.org and we can sort that out for you. Postage across the UK is a flat rate of £5 while quotes for further afield are available on request.
