Great Beast is a UK indie publisher run by dream-team Adam Cadwell and Marc Ellerby, both with long runs of diary comics under their belts (The Everyday and Ellerbisms, respectively). GB’s roster includes a veritable who’s who of faces at UK conventions: Robert Ball, Warwick Johnson-Cadwell (current artist on Tank Girl), Dan Berry (also host of the excellent Make It Then Tell Everybody series of podcasts about cartoonists’ process), John Riordan & Dan Cox, John Cei Douglas, and Isabel Greenberg, whose book The Encyclopedia of Early Earth recently made it unto the New York Times Bestseller list. Of course Cadwell’s and Ellerby’s more action-based new series, Blood Blokes and Chloe Noonan, are also on the list of these tasty, tasty offerings. The entire GB team will be descending upon us for the evening for chatting, drinking, signing, and possibly more drinking. Great Beast’s website is here to peruse.
To celebrate this explosion of UK indie talent, Gosh Comics will be popping the bottles of fizzy wine again on Friday, the 14th of March, from 7pm to 9pm.
