I’m going to be taking part in the latest Comica Comiket’s Drawing Parade along with a whole load of other comicky talent this Saturday 16th at the British Library 96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB (on around about 2.00 pm). It’s also going to be the first opportunity for you braying masses to get your mitts on a signed and scribbled on, brand new Alby Figgs book from the Blank Slate Books table.

Gorgeously dressed by top graphic tailor, Woodrow Phoenix, the Alby Figgs book is now available for sale in all good shops and online through the Blank Slate website.

Admission to the Comiket this Saturday is free, by the way and is part of this month’s Comica Festival. Click the previous link for full details of what’s on. It’s also a good time to catch the final days of the British Library’s Comics Unmasked exhibition if you haven’t seen it yet.

 

New Alby Figgs book from Blank Slate!

alby_book

Look who turned up in the post last week! In my cold, scratched hands, I’m chuffed to say the new Alby Figgs book, graphic novel, illustrated narrative compendium, bumper summertime special (however you like to call your comics these days), will be on sale next month from the brilliant Blank Slate Books. Collecting strips from Alby’s first year (season 1?!) previously aired on the Alby Figgs website, in a new format and with some additional material, it’s a gorgeously produced package aided by that master of sharpie comic book design, Woodrow Phoenix, who’s book jackets always match the sharpness of his dinner jackets.

Regale over Alby classics like Diagnosis, Deaf, Figgsy Pudding, Edwin Druid, the Freudian Gutbuster and many, many more.

Remember, you can catch up with brand new adventures from the Albster online, every first Friday.

More book news to come soon!

Discovered yesterday while trawling through my unconventional filing system looking for something else, this 7 year old character study from a Pleece Bros graphic novel that never quite got off the ground, Jessie London, featuring a young bequiffed Alby Figgs.

Post Edinburgh post

Here’s a link to a short piece I wrote for the Cape Graphic Novels Tumblr page about my recent very enjoyable experience being a guest at this year’s Stripped festival, part of The Edinburgh Book Festival, plus a photo of some shady characters masquerading as 2000AD contributors. That’s water by way, for the re-hydration purposes.
