Sunday the 8th of September is the inaugural Hackney Comics and Zine Fest and it’s being held just around the corner from the Nobrow offices. Organised by a group of enthusiastic comics and zine makes lead by the mighty Joe Stone this is really shaping up to be an event with loads of buzz about it.
It’s also free entry!
I’ll be there manning the table and we’ll have the usual glorious books along with some ‘Hilda’ and ‘Kingdom’ freebie postcards to give away with each purchase! You can find us at the well impressive sounding Table 1! Just next to our pal Elizabeth Querstret who also has a new book launching at the event.
Other than the fun books you can get from Elizabeth you. Should also be on the look out for the new release from Gareth Hopkins that i reviewed just a few short days ago here http://neverironanything.blogspot.com/2019/08/in-preview-hill-to-cry-home-by-gareth.html?zx=3ab85b7a64500ce1
Also keep your eyes peeled elsewhere in the hall for books from Andy Poyiadgi, the Laydeez Do Comics collective, Good Comics, Owen D. Pomery and an exciting new project from my old mucka Gareth Brookes.
We’ll have all the new books including the fresh off the press ‘Americana’ from Luke Healy. A paperback travelogue in graphic novel format this tells the story of the author’s gruelling,funny and brutally truthful five month trek along the Pacific Crest Trail. A walk of some 2660 miles that wasn’t without incident. This is a real favourite of mine and makes for a great summer read.
Luke will also be at the Nobrow table between 1pm and 2pm signing books.
The Nobrow and Flying Eye catalogue will be fully represented on the table and we’re looking forward to spending an afternoon talking comics!
We’ll also have ‘Skip’ from Molly Mendoza and ‘In Waves’ from AJ Dungo. These two books came out this Summer and are both sensitively told stories with original and beautifully rendered art. Like ‘Kingdom’ by Jon McNaught last year these are books you will fall straightaway in love with.
We’ll have some Hilda in the house too. Comics, novels and maybe if you’re lucky some of the much sought after figures!
Come find us at Table 1 - right near the entrance.
