May 5 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Hell yeah, it is almost FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, 2018!
Support independent comic book stores and the artists that put the colour into them this May at Gosh Comics. Gosh are featuring a plethora of events led by artists and illustrators to celebrate the annual celebration FCBD!
Free comics will be available behind the counter downstairs.
Five per person, maximum one copy of each.
First come, first served.
Here at Gosh we like to make FCBD a real family affair, and so we’ll be kicking off as always with our popular Kids Drawing Workshop Table, where a plethora of artists will join kids aged 8-12 at our drawing table. No need to book, no payment required: just pop along and join when space becomes available. We’ve got an amazing range of artists from the Flying Eye Books (Ben Newman Sandra Dieckmann & Joe Todd-Stanton), Bog Eyed Books and friends (Tor Freeman and Sarah McIntyre) and Improper Books (Laura Trinder and friends)! All kids participating will also get a grab-bag of FCBD titles.
And while that’s going on, we’ll also have an incredible line-up of artists doing live painting in our windows! Dan White, Crom, Lord Hurk, Lizzy Stewart, Paul Shinn and Isabel Greenberg will all be working away with paints and pens, so pop along to see some Real Live Artists at work!
Then from 1-2pm, we have a Guardian Cartoonists Signing, with Stephen Collins, Tom Gauld, and Simone Lia!
You can have a little break after that if you like, but be sure to be back here for 3-4pm when we’ll have a The Wicked and The Divine signing with the dynamic duo of creators! Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie will be joining us for the hour!
And finally, Michael & Laura Allred will be here from 5-6pm to sign for you lucky, lucky people!
