A COMICA REVIEW BY:

GOSH! COMICS


Gosh! Comics is one of the UK's best comic shops. With a 22-year track record in the industry Gosh! Comics is a must-visit store for those who love the medium.

This weekend sees the launch of one of the world’s most exciting comics festivals in the form of Comica, the London International Comics Festival. It’s a London arts calendar highlight with a plethora of guests, many of whom rarely grace these shores.

Paul Gravett’s Comica festival, presented in association with the Institute of Contemporary Arts, is in its sixth triumphant year. Its trans-continental line-up of talent - along with workshops, exhibitions, screenings and performances - have fast made it one of the most prestigious of shows to celebrate comics. It’s fun, it’s informative, it’s inspirational, and it’s an absolute must-do.
