UK – Winnebago Graveyard #1 Signing

Press Release:

Alison Sampson appears at Gosh Comics for a signing on Saturday June 24th, from 1:00 – 2:00 PM to celebrate the release of Winnebago Graveyard #1 from Image Comics!

Alison first came onto a lot of people’s radars with her 2014 collaboration with Nathan Edmondson, Genesis (of which we currently have some signed copies available in-store and online). Her mix of detail and innovative layouts (both a tip of the hat to her work as an architect) impressed a great deal, so – while we’ve loved her appearances here and there on short stories and single issues – we’ve been waiting with some excitement for her next major project.

Now, working with legendary horror comics writer Steve Niles, it’s here! Winnebago Graveyard is a slice of satanist suspense, as a vacationing family stumbles into a town of satanists with sacrifice on their mind. A gory, 70s horror-inspired story unfolds as the family peels back the layers of secret and conspiracy that envelop the town. Each issue of the 4 issue mini series also includes back matter essays looking behind the scenes on the book, and essays on occult topics illustrated by a brilliant line-up of artists.

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.

ABOUT THE CREATORS

Based in Ireland, Jordie Bellaire is an Eisner award winning colourist for her contributions to such titles as The Manhattan Projects, Nowhere Men, Pretty Deadly, Zero, The Massive, Tom Strong, X-Files Season 10, Captain Marvel, Journey into Mystery, and Numbercruncher, among numerous other books.

Simon Gane lives and works in Bristol, UK. Previous projects include Dark Rain: A New Orleans Story and Northlanders for DC/Vertigo, Paris for SLG Publishing and Godzilla: History’s Greatest Monster for IDW. Simon is currently working on Image title They’re Not Like Us with writer Eric Stephenson.

Emi Lenox is based out of Portland, Oregon, and is a comic creator widely known for Emitown, a web-based diary comic that was later published by Image as two printed volumes, and her excellent collaboration with Jeff Lemire, Plutona.

John McCrea is an Irish comics creator currently collaborating with Phil Hester on the supernatural science series Mythic. His past work includes such titles as Troubled Souls, Hitman, and many, many more.

Tradd Moore burst on the scene with his eye-popping (sometimes quite literally) visuals on The Strange Talent of Luther Strode (with writer Justin Jordan). He was quickly snapped up by Marvel for their Ghost Rider relaunch, as well as ongoing cover work on top titles. As well as working on Ales Kot’s Image series Zero, he collaborated with Jordan again to complete the Luther Strode trilogy with The Legend and The Legacy.

Drawing comics professionally since the age of fifteen, Sean Phillips has in recent years concentrated on creator-owned books including Criminal, Incognito, Seven Psychopaths, Fatale & The Fade Out. He’s currently drawing Kill or be Killed, written by his frequent collaborator Ed Brubaker.

Alison Sampson brings her architectural background to her art, creating living, breathing worlds that her characters inhabit. Her work can be found in Nathan Edmonson collaboration Genesis, and the upcoming Winnebago Graveyard with writer Steve Niles.

Declan Shalvey is an award-winning cartoonist based in Ireland, known for his many collaborations with creators like Warren Ellis and Jordie Bellaire.

Si Spurrier writes novels and comics, with his recent work in the sequential sphere including Cry Havoc, Doctor Who, and Eisner award nominated science-fantasy series, The Spire. His latest prose novels are Contract and A Serpent Uncoiled, while his first digital-only project is the “absurdist-noir” novella Unusual Concentrations.

As Publisher for Image Comics, Eric Stephenson has helped foster the creator-owned projects of numerous bestselling writers and artists, including Robert Kirkman, Ed Brubaker, Matt Fraction, Jonathan Hickman, Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, Kelly Sue DeConnick, and Brandon Graham, as well as a well-known pair of award magnets whose names rhyme with Frian and Biona. He is also the Eisner-nominated writer and co-creator of Nowhere Men and They’re Not Like US.

After 10 years of encouraging London teenagers to draw anything other than comics, Christian Ward is now a full-time comic book artist, illustrator and writer. Alongside being an artist at Marvel (Iron Man, New Avengers, The Ultimates, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), he is also the co-creator of ODY-C with Matt Fraction for Image Comics.

Dan Watters is a London-based writer whose first creator owned graphic novel Limbo, created with Caspar Wijngaard, was released in 2016 through Image Comics. He is currently working on Assassin’s Creed and Dark Souls: Legends of the Flame, both for Titan Comics.

Caspar Wijngaard’s work has been published by Image Comics, BOOM! and Titan. His most recent work includes the Image series Limbo which he drew, coloured and co-created with writer Dan Watters, and Assassin’s Creed and Dark Souls comics for Titan.

Be sure to come along and help us celebrate with this heapin’ helpin’ of Image talent! If you can’t make it on the day but would like to arrange a reservation or mail order, drop us an email to info@goshlondon.com. Keep an eye on the Facebook event for any updates.

And to help celebrate all the Image goings-on, we’ll be doing 10% off of all Image Comics TPs on the day! It’s the perfect chance to try out that new series you’ve had your eye on…
