Nick Abadzis Signing

Nick Abadzis, creator of Hugo Tate and Laika, will be joining us for an evening signing. As well as signing copies of those books we’ll be celebrating the newest addition that fine list, The Cigar That Fell In Love With A Pipe.

Nick Abadzis Signing at Gosh! Comics London

You might think that it’s the doomed relationship of Rita Hayworth and Orson Welles that’s at the heart of this humorous (and dare we say a little educational) story about love and smoking. But guess what kid! It ‘aint! The real stars of the piece are Conchita Marquez and the sailor she fell in love with; their spirits trapped in smoking paraphernalia.  If you want to know any more than that you’ll need to read the book – it’s a good ‘un we promise.

The signing will be running between 6-7pm on October 24th. The book costs £14.99 and will be available for mail order if you’re unable to make it along to the event. Mail order quotes are available on request; just send an email to info@goshcomics.com and we’ll sort it out!

Tiny Pencil Fall Party and Issue Launch

Tiny Pencil, purveyors of all things graphite, are releasing their fourth anthology and it’s going to be a corker.

Tiny Pencil Launch Party at Gosh! Comics London

Tiny Pencil, founded by Amber Hsu, is a love letter to all things graphite, eschewing other art forms in favour of wonderfully versatile carbon and everything it offers. There’s even a potted history of the mighty pencil over on their website!

The newest anthology, Tiny Pencil No. 4: Death & Resurrection, promises to be just as gorgeous as all that have come before it: page upon page of gorgeously rendered illustration? Hells yes. A host of talented creators? You betcha. The line-up includes (but is by no means limited to): Joe Fenton, Joanna Concejo, Yoko Tanaka, Ho Sin Tung, Alexis Deacon, Gareth Brookes, S.J. Harris (Eustace), Andy Van Dinh and Rachel M. Bray.

If you’d like us to save a copy for you then drop an email to info@goshlondon.com and we can make those arrangements. Mail order is available and postal quotes are on request.

Gosh! Exclusive Bookplate Edition: Shoplifter

If you’re a fan of lavish visuals, relate-able characters, and the colour pink Michael Cho’s Shoplifter is a book you need to read. And if you need any further incentive we’re proud to announce our very own Gosh! Bookplate Edition, with an all-new exclusive piece of art created for the occasion.

Shoplifter by Michael Cho bookplate edition available at Gosh! Comics London

Corrina Park used to have big plans. Studying English literature in college, she imagined writing a successful novel and leading the idealized life of an author. After graduation, she moved to a big city and took a job at an advertising agency—just to pay off her student loans. Now she’s worked in the same office for five years and the only thing she’s written is . . . copy. She longs for companionship (other than her cat),gets no satisfaction from her job, and feels numbed by the monotony of a life experienced through a series of screens. But whenever she shoplifts a magazine from the corner store near her apartment, she feels a little, what? A little more alive. Yet Corrina knows there must be something more to life, and she faces the same question as does everyone of her generation: how to find it?

The signed bookplate is A6, limited to 200 copies, and has been printed on a high quality card. The book costs £14.99 and is available to mail order; postal quotes are available on request so if you’d like to arrange that with us drop a line to info@goshlondon.com.

Happily, as well as the bookplate Stephen has produced a Gosh! exclusive giclee print of one of his Guardian strips.
