Anthologize: Indie Anthology Triple Mega-Launch


Three amazing new anthologies are launched at Gosh! Comics in Soho tonight - join their creators and contributors for this triple publication party:

The Strumpet is a transatlantic, all-female anthology on its third issue and this time, the theme is ‘tasty’. Food, sex, and, erm, opera are amongst the avenues of exploration chosen by the Strumpets – not that they stop there! Ever wonder where your street food comes from? Ever fancy a catfight between Sookie Stackhouse and Bella from Twilight? Well, then read on! Contributors include Hannah Berry, Robin Ha, Hazel Newlevant, Colleen Frakes, Hayley Gold, Dre Grigoropol, Ellen Lindner, Kripa Joshi, Jennifer Hayden, Freya Harrison, Becky Hawkins, and many more.

Score & Script features contributions from twenty-six fantastic cartoonists co-ordinated by comics-genius and PhD-researcher John Miers, and started life as an exhibition at C4RD as part of last year’s Comica festival. Now it’s preserved for posterity in a beautiful double-gatefold volume collecting all the strips in a deeply satisfying smorgasbord, along with a spicy side order of analysis.

Contributors to the new fifth issue of The Comix Reader are a rogues gallery of the UK’s funniest, edgiest and weirdest cartoonists, such as Elliott Baggot, Alex Potts, Mike Medaglia Kevin Ward, Lord Hurk, and many, many more.
