Comic Gosh!p: Issue 20, “Krazy Kat”, “Calvin & Hobbes” and “Lucy the Octopus”
Wednesday 12 June 2013, 7-9pm
Gosh! Comics, 1 Berwick Street, Soho, London, England
(Afterwards some of us go for drinks at The John Snow pub, 39 Broadwick Street, Soho, W1F 9QJ)
I’m a regular attendee at Comic Gosh!p, a proud Gosh!per, and always learn a lot and laugh a lot. Each event normally includes a mainstream comic (in this case two) and one small press book (in this case our blue, eight-legged, guitar-rocking friend).
Even if Lucy wasn’t up for discussion in June, this one would still be a must for me as both Krazy Kat and Calvin & Hobbes are big influences. I even did a dissertation on Calvin & Hobbes back at college.
If you fancy reading any of the strips before coming along (or even if you can’t make it), here’s where to look…
- Read some Krazy Kat here, or buy any Krazy Kat printed collection.
- Read a month of Calvin & Hobbes here, or if you’re only going to buy a printed collection you might want to start with The Calvin and Hobbes Tenth Anniversary Book which is kind of a greatest hits and has lots of insight into the strip’s creation.
- And of course you can buy a Lucy the Octopus collection here or check it out online for free at lucytheoctopus.net.
Hope to see some of you there!
I’ll also be selling comics, prints and bears and doing commissions / portraits at these upcoming events…
