Phonogram: The Singles Club Bookplate Edition - Exclusive to Gosh!

Must be time for another bookplate edition! And fortunately Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie, those cheery chappies behind the excellent Phonogram, have obliged, working with us to create a special, limited bookplate edition of their new collection, Phonogram: The Singles Club.

Set over one magical club night, The Singles Club is a series of one-shot tales focusing on a cast of characters as they move in and out of each other's lives. Music is the backdrop, the thematic and quite literally magical key to each story as McKelvie & Gillen spin their narratively innovative tales of love, loss and self-discovery. And it's damn good fun to boot.

Fans of the original series will be pleased to see plenty of familiar faces, now with lively colour added to McKelvie's clean, crisp art, while Gillen's insightful, character-driven writing remains as fresh and entertaining as ever. Those unfamiliar with the original Phonogram series, Rue Britannia, needn't despair, as The Singles Club will stand handily on its own and comes highly recommended. And if you don't believe me, then let Matt Fraction convince you:

"This is my favorite comic." - Matt Fraction (and his wacky American spelling).

The Gosh-exclusive Phonogram: The Singles Club Bookplate Edition is limited to 200 copies, featuring a numbered colour portrait of Silent Girl by Jamie McKelvie signed by the writer and the artist. At the standard retail price of £10.50, these are sure to get snapped up, so if you'd like to reserve one or arrange a mail order, drop us a line at
