Comica/ Foyles billboard exhibition

If you’re going up the Charing Cross road in London sometime soon, check out the Comica festival billboard exhibition, in association with Foyles at the site of the soon to be extended bookshop, formerly St Martins Art College. I’ve got a couple of people sized panels up there, based on a true Liz Taylor and Richard Burton story from the 60s, when the Hollywood ledge swiped a book for hubby during a photo-shoot in the famous London bookshop.

Its been up for nearly a month now (ever on the ball, eh?), but it should still be there for the next couple of months. So when you’re getting hassled by your last minute Chrimbo shopping, why not take a peek and get in the way of all the other hassled consumers? There’s some great quirky stories about Foyles, its history and its characters, drawn by some amazing comics talent (and, er, me…), including John Miers, Steven Appleby, JAKe, Karrie Fransman, Krent Able, Bryan Talbot, Hunt Emerson, Woodrow Phoenix, Oliver East, Hannah Berry, Rob Davis, Donya Todd and Rian Hughes.

If you can’t make it to London, you can also see the whole exhibition online here @ http://www.johnmiers.com/Foylescomic/

Alby Figgs down the Arcadia

This week, everybody’s favourite septuagenarian street sage (?), Alby Figgs, gets down with the kids in the arcade for a run-through of recent and not so recent tele-visual broadcasting history.

Alby Figgs in Day of the Dead

This week’s Alby Figgs episode sees Alby in ‘Day of the Dead’. Will there be zombies, skeletal automatons emerging from the graveyard, ghoulish apparitions scaring 50 shades of shite out of us? Or, just a man with a handy hankie to hand? It doesn’t get much more rock ‘n’ roll than this! No, honest, it doesn’t!
