UK – Three Rooms in Valerie’s Head Launch Party

Writer David Gaffney and artist Dan Berry appear at Gosh Comics to celebrate the launch of their graphic novel Three Rooms in Valerie’s Head on Thursday, the 22nd of February at 7:00 till 9:00 PM!

Three Rooms in Valerie’s Head is “British comedy blended with universal regret, this darkly funny graphic novel uses surreal and beautiful visions to explore the ways we remain haunted by our ex-lovers. Valerie has a rich interior life. Serially unlucky in love, to feel better she imagines that her previous boyfriends are dead and that their bodies are kept downstairs in the cellar in a strange, mummified state. Every day she brings them upstairs and speaks to them about what went wrong. What follows is a series of peculiar and funny, and sometimes disturbing short tales about inept lovers, weird obsessions, and socially malfunctioning men who repeatedly fail to build a relationship with poor Valerie.”

David Gaffney’s funny, sad, strange, and very short fiction has been entertaining and moving us since his first collection, Sawn-Off Tales was published in 2006. He’s since written all sorts of things, from novels to narratives in the form of cat posters. Dan Berry’s gorgeous watercoloured comics and illustrations have been a favourite for years, so we’re pleased as punch to have their first collaboration launched here with us on the 22nd of February, at 7 pm and we hope you can join us!

UK – Stabbity Bunny Signing

Writer Richard Rivera will be signing the first issue of Stabbity Bunny at Forbidden Planet’s London Megastore at 4:00pm on Saturday 3rd February.

Seven-year-old Grace, still clutching her adorable plush bunny, is kidnapped by supernatural forces that have been hunting her family for generations. She awakens in a shack on the outskirts of town, and for the first time in her life, the little girl can’t sense her mother’s presence. Her captor knows the family’s secrets, and that link has been severed.

When her escape attempt fails, it seems there will be deadly consequences, but an unlikely protector intervenes. It’s a big mistake to kidnap a child with a plush toy named Stabbity Bunny!

Also available at the signing will be a special pre-release edition of the second issue!

UK – Kim Reaper: Grim Beginnings Signing

Sarah Graley signs KIM REAPER: GRIM BEGINNINGS at Forbidden Planet Birmingham on Saturday 17th February from 1:00 – 2:00 PM.

In KIM REAPER, Kim works at a part-time job to make ends meet. Unlike most university students, Kim’s job is pretty dang cool: she’s a grim reaper, tasked with guiding souls into the afterlife.

Like most university students, Becka has a super intense unrequited crush. Unlike most university students, Becka’s crush is on a beautiful gothic angel that frequents the underworld. Of course, she doesn’t know that. Unaware of the ghoulish drama she’s about to step into, Becka finally gathers up the courage to ask Kim on a date!

But when she falls into a ghostly portal and interrupts Kim at her job, she sets off a chain of events that will pit the two of them against angry cat-dads, vengeful zombies, and perhaps even the underworld itself. But if they work together, they just might make it… and maybe even get a kiss in the bargain.

Sarah Graley is a UK based comic artist and writer, who wrote and drew the Rick and Morty comic mini series Lil’ Poopy Superstar, and creates the comic series Kim Reaper for Oni Press.

She is also known for her popular diary comic series Our Super Adventure, and is currently working on her graphic novel Glitch for Graphix/Scholastic, pencilled for release late 2018.
