Gosh! Comics presents The Phoenix Activity Day


Gosh! Comics presents a free Activity Day spotlighting the stellar weekly kids’ mag, The Phoenix, aimed at 8 to 11 year olds but they’ve got fans as young as three and dudes in suits are buying it for themselves. It’s full of weekly strips, long-running stories, one-off strips, competitions and all sorts, by the likes of Jamie Smart, Dave Shelton, Nick Abadzis, Kate Brown, Simone Lia, Chris Riddell and more, for £2.99 a pop.

On Saturday the 3rd of November Gosh! Comics is having three Phoenix artists – Neill Cameron, Lorenzo Etherington & Gary Northfield – come over and plaster our windows in cartoons and ink. If you’re aged between 6 and 13, come on down and draw some stuff with people who get to draw stuff as their actual job. It’s FREE! And you can ask them how to be a cartoonist. They’re captive and have to be nice to you. More details and photos here!

Tickets: Free!
Where: Gosh! Comics, 1 Berwick Street, London WiF 0DR
When: Saturday, November 3, 2012 1-5pm
