Press Release:

Blank Slate have published so many books by New! British! Talent! in the last month that we need to throw a launch party for a bunch of them all at once. All at once. We’re having a big ol’ launch party on Friday the 9th of August, from 7pm until 9pm by which point you will have drunk all our beer and will have to set about finding more in the pubs of Soho.

Those five books are: Joe Decie’s The Listening Agent, Donya Todd’s Death and the Girls, Jim Medway’s Playing Out, Oliver East’s Swear Down and Dan Berry’s The Suitcase.

Overwhelmed? Let’s break it down. (Blurbs after the break.)

As usual, if you can’t make the launch party but would like to nab some signed copies, just email us at info@goshlondon.com.

Mail order people: we do a flat-rate of £5 postage within the UK so you can get ALL OF THE ABOVE BOOKS posted to you for just £5 (on top of their combined retail price, obviously). Elsewhere: you’ll have to let me know which ones you’d like and where you want them posted to so I can work it out. We can post anywhere in the world.

Writer Nick Spencer and artist Christian Ward sign at Gosh! Comics on Saturday June 29th from 2:00pm until 4:00pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

Here’s a little something we’ve got going on to coincide with the publication of the long-awaited Infinite Vacation hardcover: a signing with writer Nick Spencer and artist Christian Ward!

From the Image website:

“WELCOME TO THE INFINITE VACATION, WHERE CHANGING YOUR LIFE IS ALWAYS JUST A CLICK AWAY! Mark lives in a world where alternate realities are up for sale, and buying and trading your way through unlimited variations of yourself is as commonplace as checking your email or updating your status. But when other ‘hims’ start dying suddenly and he meets a mysterious girl who wants nothing to do with ‘life-changing,’ he’ll learn the truth about the universe he stumbles through, and what happens when your vacation turns on you.”

It’s happening here at Gosh! on the 29th of June, from 2 to 4 pm. Plus, we’ve got a lovely shop-exclusive bookplate to go with it, limited to 200 copies and at no extra cost.

The hardcover has a tentative release date of the 19th of June.

UK – Tom Gauld Signing

tg042413

Cartoonist Tom Gauld signs at Gosh Comics on Wednesday the 24th of April, from 7:30 to 9:00pm!

Press Release:

Tom Gauld is a favourite round these parts. It’s not just because of his stellar cartooning skills (see Hunter & Painter and The Gigantic Robot) but also because he’s a thoroughly nice dude. We threw him a launch party last year for Goliath and we’re doing it all over again for his new Drawn & Quarterly book You’re All Just Jealous Of My Jetpack whose existence now means that people outside of UK Guardian readers can see the stuff that we get on a weekly basis because we are oh so spoiled. Eight years worth of strips are collected in this handsome hardcover and it’s about bloody time someone put them in a book. Here’s a preview.

Come and get a copy signed and doodled in by Tom himself while standing around in a comic shop trying not get get beer on the merchandise. It’s all happening on Wednesday the 24th of April, from 7.30 to 9pm at which point we’ll kick you out and you can move on to The Endurance up the road like you did last time. Just don’t leave your signed book tucked behind the cistern like some cartoon Meryl Streep. What larks, pip.

Pat Mills and Kevin O’Neill sign at Gosh Comics on Saturday the 20th of April from 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm!

Press Release:

It’s been a long time coming, this one. Since it began in 1987 Pat Mills and Kevin O’Neill’s superhero satire Marshal Law has been through a string of publishers before finally finding a home at DC Comics. And for the last few years the Marshal Law omnibus has been promised, denied, and now that it’s finally coming out there are still some sad voices on the internet who don’t believe it. It’s happening, dudes. Marshal Law: The Deluxe Edition – collecting the original series plus Fear and Loathing, Takes Manhattan, Kingdom of the Blind, The Hateful Dead, Super Babylon and Secret Tribunal – is coming! And as soon as it gets here we are having a signing with Mills and O’Neill to celebrate.

UK – Halo Jones Signing

halojonesweb1

Ian Gibson signs at Gosh Comics on Saturday the 27th of April from 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

Alan Moore and Ian Gibson’s classic 2000 AD saga Halo Jones is coming out in a brand new edition complete with a swanky new cover! We thought we’d welcome her back to our shelves by hosting a signing with the man who drew Halo and her universe for the very first time back in 1984. British comics legend Gibson will be at our hallowed table signing for two whole hours on Saturday the 27th of April from 2pm until 4pm so now’s your chance to get your new Halo scribbled in, or even your battered old ones (although you’ll be missing out on the new introduction by Fairest writer, Lauren Beukes).

Halo was one of the first feminist heroines of comics, a 50th-century everywoman whose story was not the testosterone-fueled story that 2000 AD readers were used to but something else altogether. Says Beukes: “She’s remarkable for being just a girl caught up in extraordinary circumstances. Halo is working class, she doesn’t have any superpowers, in her own words, she was ‘just there’… It’s a story about choices and compromises, about defying expectations, about poverty, society, celebrity, identity, the toll of war, and also love, ambition, ambivalence and the places restless curiosity will take you.” Our pals at Forbidden Planet International have put the whole first chapter online. Head to their excellent blog and have a read.

Gibson is not only known for Halo Jones but Robo-Hunter, Judge Dredd, Ace Trucking Co. and more (and we’re not putting any restrictions on this signing so feel free to bring along your favourites). The new edition of Halo Jones is £13.99 and we’ll have plenty of copies available on the day. However! If reserving a copy will help you sleep at night, send us an email to info@goshlondon.com. We can also sort you out with a signed copy if you can’t make it on the day or happen to live on the other side of the world.

UK – Nemo: Heart of Ice Signing

nemowebflyer

Writer Alan Moore and artist Kevin O’Neill sign the latest League of Extraordinary Gentleman book, Nemo: Heart of Ice, on Saturday, 9th March 2013 from 2:00 – 6:00 pm!

Press Release:

In the grim cold of March surfaces a thrilling new League of Extraordinary Gentlemen book — Nemo: Heart of Ice, a full-colour 56-page adventure in the classic pulp tradition by the inestimable Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill. In that same grim cold we are inviting you to stand in a backstreet of Soho clutching your League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen comics to be signed by the guys who made them. Ordinarily we’d save it for the summer so you could bring your deckchairs and beers instead of duvets and every cardigan you own but this simply can’t wait: it’s the launch day of Nemo: Heart of Ice and nobody will care about the weather because there’s a new League comic on the shelves.

It’s 1925, fifteen long years since Janni Dakkar first tried to escape the legacy of her dying science-pirate father, only to accept her destiny as the new Nemo, captain of the legendary Nautilus. Now, tired of her unending spree of plunder and destruction, Janni launches a grand expedition to surpass her father’s greatest failure: the exploration of Antarctica. Hot on her frozen trail are a trio of genius inventors, hired by an influential publishing tycoon to retrieve the plundered valuables of an African queen. It’s a deadly race to the bottom of the world — an uncharted land of wonder and horror where time is broken and the mountains bring madness. Jules Verne meets H.P. Lovecraft in the unforgettable final showdown, lost in the living, beating and appallingly inhuman HEART OF ICE.

Nemo: Heart of Ice. Hardcover. £9.99.

It’s all happening on Saturday the 9th of March from 2pm until 6pm. Given the size of previous Moore/O’Neill signings it’s a good idea to get there early so you don’t miss out.

Just a quick note on the rules for the day: because of time constraints Moore and Kevin will only signing copies of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century 1910, 1969, and 2009, the Black Dossier and the new Nemo book — with a limit of 3 items per person (any combination of those mentioned is fine, but only three things. No suitcases full of Swamp Thing back issues, please). We’ll have plenty of copies on the day but if you’d like to reserve anything drop us a line at info@goshlondon.com and we can sort you out.

Sadly, Alan & Kevin won’t have time to sign any extra stock, so if you can’t make it we recommend you find someone London-based (and very patient) to sit in the queue for you.
