LI’L POOPY SUPERSTAR is the runaway hit comic book series based on Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland’s hilarious adult swim animated show RICK AND MORTY. Explore the complexities of friendship and fame!

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.

UK – Erik the Red: King of Winter Signing

Danish author Søren Mosdal appears at Gosh! Comics to sign copies of his Centrala title Erik the Red: King of Winter on Monday May 15th from 6:00 – 7:00 PM.

Erik the Red tells the story of Erik Torvaldsson, who in 982 left his home of Iceland (thanks to a feud with his neighbour) and established a colony in a land mass he dubbed Greenland (apparently to attract settlers). He ruled there as its “Paramount Chieftain” until his death in 1003. Mosdal’s style adds immensely to the take, reminiscent of the likes of Joann Sfar, Christophe Blain, and Blutch.
