In case you missed it, we announced two upcoming events to circle in your diary:
We'll have Giant Days creator John Allison and the author of the Giant Days novel, Non Pratt, here to discuss their work and the act of adaptation on Wednesday, August 29th, 7.30-9pm! John and Non will be here to discuss the series and the tricky work of adaptation from one medium to another, staying true to the vision of the original work while exploiting the strengths of its new narrative home. The talk will kick off at 7.30pm and be followed by a short signing, and seating is unreserved so no need for tickets or booking: just come on down and grab a seat! You can pre-order a signed copy of the novel here on our webstore.

It's Drink and Draw time again! Yes, once again our Nora and Broken Frontier's Andy Oliver will be descending on the Kings Arms pub for an evening of drinking (optional) and drawing (compulsory) this Thursday from 6.30-9pm! Our special guests this month are David Biskup, Bethany Hall and Will Powers, providing suitable thematic inspiration.

We've got a release so big this week that we're just going to put it right at the start!
LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN: THE TEMPEST #1 - SIGNED BY KEVIN O'NEILL
Writer: Alan Moore
Artist: Kevin O'Neill
It's the grand finale as Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill begin the capstone to their 20 year journey with the League, and also to their comics careers. Yep, both men are retiring from comics after this, so enjoy it while you can. It's a breakneck adventure across time and space, culminating in the apocalyptic era of 2996 in the domed city of "We". Make sure you study up on the previous volumes, because this one is throwing it all in! And as a special bonus, all our copies are signed by Kevin O'Neill, so be sure to get in quick for a copy, or you can order right now via our webstore. If you've got LOEG on your standing order, rest assured a signed copy will automatically be winging its way to you.

Don't forget, we've had that second pesky May bank holiday, so the new comics won't be arriving until Wednesday to go out Wednesday. Keep an eye on our social media feeds for news when it gets to the shelves! Man...bank holidays, eh? Just get rid of the blasted things, right? Anyone? Anyone with me here?

The Gosh! Authority 02.05.18
Quick bit of admin: due to the bank holiday that you're all enjoying while some people (me) are sitting under artificial lights in a basement at work, the comics will be arriving on the Wednesday to go out on the Wednesday. So when we have them will be down to the vagaries of delivery drivers and London traffic. Keep an eye out on Twitter and Facebook, where we'll announce it as soon as they're out on the shelves. Otherwise the safe bet is to leave it until after lunchtime.
We've got the brilliant Daisy Hirst in this Thursday for the launch of her latest picture book I Do Not Like Books Anymore! Daisy will be toasting the release and signing your books here on Thursday the 10th May, 7-9pm! More details here!

Coming up on the 22nd March, at 7-9pm Alexander Tucker and David CW Briggs will be here for our next launch event: UNDIMENSIONED presents R, the new comic by artist and musician DCWB (aka David CW Briggs). DCWB takes us on a journey through the utter pointlessness of war in this repetitious cycle of humanoids, flamboyant assassins, and ruthless goblin killers. UNDIMENSIONED is published by comic artist and musician Alexander Tucker, whose latest comic Entity Reunion will also be available at the launch. If you'd like to have something signed and can't make it down on the night, just drop us an email at email@example.com. Keep up to date on the facebook events page.

Welcome, to the last Gosh! Authority of February 2018 and what a lovely little line up of new goodies we have for you. It’s Drink & Draw time with our friends at Broken Frontier! We have Liam Cobb, Will Tempest, and Andy Barron! The event will be Wednesday, February 28th. The excellent Kings Arms pub will be hosting this time. Regular Gosh host Nora will still be Stateside for this one so our Shaun (aka me) will do his level best to fill her mighty shoes. Don't worry, though, you'll still be in the very capable hands of Broken Frontier’s Editor-in-Chief Andy Oliver! The Drink and Draw will begin at Gosh! at 6.30pm with an opportunity to buy work from the featured artists at a discounted price before heading to the Kings Arms at 7pm to begin our drinking and drawing! You can follow the event on Facebook, and a huge thank you to our sponsor Cass Art for the huge stack of art supplies!
