Did you pick up the excellent Winnebago Graveyard #1 last week? The new horror mini by Alison Sampson and Steve Niles is off to a cracking start, and we're very happy to have Alison here signing copies this Saturday, the 24th June from 2-3pm! We've still got copies on the shelf, so if you missed out, we've got you covered. Come on down!
If you missed out on picking up the new Bulletproof Coffin The Thousand Yard Stare one shot last week, don't despair! We have plenty of copies left, which is just as well, as David Hine and Shaky Kane will be signing here this Saturday June 17th, from 1-2pm! And don't forget, we'll have an extremely limited run reproduction of the 'Hypno Vampires From The Stars' ashcan from the comic available on the day. You can get a copy free with Bulletproof Coffin TP Vol 01, or buy a copy on its own for £5 while stocks last! Click here for more details.
A quick note for those who have pre-ordered our Doom Patrol TP Vol 01 Bookplate Edition signed by Gerard Way and Nick Derington: we've had a slight delay getting the signed plates back, but they should be with us any time now. As soon as they arrive, they will be dispatched post-haste. In the meantime, if you pick a copy up in store, hold on to your receipt and you can exchange it for a plate once they arrive!
We hope you all enjoyed your bank holiday weekend but sadly it does mean we are once again struck by it's dreaded curse - a Wednesday delivery! We will work our socks off to get everything out as quickly as possible and will keep our social media feeds updated as we go, but we suspect it'll be post lunch time that the shelves are filled with all of this weeks new delights.
The events calendar continues on it's merry way this Friday evening as Hannah Berry joins us from 7-9pm to celebrate the release of her new book, Livestock! It's a superb satirical skewering of the intersection between politics and celebrity, and comes highly recommended! Not only that, but Hannah has printed off a bookplate especially for the occasion, so don't miss out! More details here.
Thanks for all your patience last week while we got the new website up and running! If you haven’t had a look around yet, please do.

Speaking of events, don’t miss out on a humdinger this Friday night: we’re throwing a party to celebrate the launch of A Castle in England, the new title from Nobrow. Written by Jamie Rhodes, with an amazing roster of UK art talent - Isaac Lenkiewicz, Briony May Smith, William Exley, Becky Palmer and Isabel Greenberg - A Castle in England is a collection of short stories from the history of Scotney Castle in Kent. Should be good one, so don’t miss out! Details here.
