Also this week… I’m thrilled that Lucy has a tiny cameo in this week’s Penny Blackfeather by the amazing Francesca Dare
See of you can spot Lucy then go and read the wonderful Penny Blackfeather (a very funny webcomic adventure with ghosts and a parrot) from the beginning…

Next week Wednesday (12 June 2013). Lucy the Octopus will be mingling with giants of the comic strip world: George Herriman’s sublime Krazy Kat and Bill Watterson’s wonderful Calvin & Hobbes. The three strips are up for discussion at the Gosh!p graphic novel reading group in June.

Comic Gosh!p: Issue 20, “Krazy Kat”, “Calvin & Hobbes” and “Lucy the Octopus”

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).

You can join the group’s facebook page here!

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…

Hope to see some of you there!
