MA – Graphic Novels for Young Readers

Graphic novel creators Shelli Paroline & Braden Lamb (One Day a Dot) and Robert Christie &

Deborah Lang (Quirk’s Quest: The Lost and the Found) share their books and discuss art and creating graphic novels for young readers on Saturday, June 30, 2018 at 3:00 PM.

One Day a Dot explores the age-old question: Where did we come from? Where did everything come from?

Starting with one tiny dot and continuing through the Big Bang to the rise of human societies, the story of our universe is told in simple and vivid terms. But the biggest question of all cannot be answered: Where did that one dot come from?

One Day a Dot is a beautiful and vibrant picture book that uses the visual motif of circles as to guide young readers through the stages of life on Earth.

Braden Lamb grew up in Seattle, studied film in upstate New York, learned about Vikings in Iceland and Norway, and began an art career in Massachusetts. Now he draws and colors comics, and wouldn’t have it any other way.

Shelli Paroline escaped early on into the world of comics, cartoons, and science fiction. She has returned to the Boston area, where she is an illustrator and co-director of the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo.

Marooned in unknown and exceedingly hostile territory, Captain Quenterindy Quirk and his furry entourage continue their royal quest to explore the uncharted lands of Crutonia. And now they’ve made a most remarkable discovery: Amysterious and highly advanced civilization lies beneath the surface of the island. But the rulers of this new world have little patience for inept explorers or their royal quests.

Vividly illustrated and starring a cunningly designed cast of characters, Quirk’s Quest is a tale of adventure in a fully imagined world ripe for exploration. Included in this volume is an illustrated roster of the important characters and a map of the world of Crutonia.

Robert Christie grew up on Long Island and spent most of his waking hours obsessively drawing. While taking cover from a lunchroom food fight, he met Deborah Lang and shortly thereafter they conspired to create Crutonia. He makes his living as an illustrator, painter, and prop maker for major motion pictures, Broadway, and fashion photo shoots.

Deborah Lang is a cartoonist, scientific illustrator, and molecular biologist. She was born in New York City, but eventually moved to Long Island purely to meet up with Robert Christie and create Crutonia with him.

UK – Art of SOLO Signing

Press Release:

To celebrate the release of the The Art of Solo A Star Wars Story by Phil Szostak from Abrams Books, Gosh Comics hosts Vincent Jenkins, Jack Dudman, Will Htay, Adam Brockbank, Glyn Dillon, Julian Caldow, Chris Caldow, Moley Sole, Paul Marsh, and Neil Ellis for a very special panel discussion and signing here, Tuesday 12th June, 7.30-9pm!

Solo: A Star Wars Story is the second non-series film to help fill out the Star Wars universe, bringing to life hitherto unseen worlds and technologies, and reimagining familiar places and faces (and certain iconic spaceships) for an earlier time. Before filming starts, heavy lifting begins in the design departments, with countless reams of art being distilled down to a final vision for the film.

“The Art of Solo: A Star Wars Story reveals, for the first time, the design evolution of each new fantastical set, otherworldly machine, and unforgettable character in the film. Packed with hundreds of spectacular images, including production paintings, concept art and sketches, storyboards, and matte paintings, The Art of Solo: A Star Wars Story is the definitive guide to the art of the film—and a must-have keepsake for fans.”

Lucky for us plenty of the talented folks behind the scenes are based right here in the UK, and we’re lucky enough to be hosting a number of them for a Q&A session and signing! We’ll have Vincent Jenkins, Jack Dudman, Will Htay, Adam Brockbank, Glyn Dillon, Julian Caldow, Chris Caldow, Moley Sole, Paul Marsh & Neil Ellis all here in-store to talk about their process working on the film, as well as take your questions. There will also be an opportunity to get copies of The Art of Solo A Star Wars Story signed by this incredible roster of talent.

Things kick off on Tuesday 12th June from 7.30-9 pm. We’ll be closing the store at 7pm for a brief set-up, reopening at around 7.20pm to let people take their seats.

Seats will be available on a first come, first served basis, and if past attendance is any indication we’d recommend getting here to queue by 7pm.
