Becky Cloonan, Kieron Gillen, and Jamie McKelvie Signing at Gosh! - Saturday June 5th 2- 4 pm

Get out your diaries out, folks!

The very first Saturday in June the very stylish and excellent trio of Becky Cloonan (Demo, PIXU, American Virgin), Kieron Gillen (Phonogram, Thor) and Jamie McKelvie (Phonogram, Suburban Glamour) will be in the Gosh! basement signing books just for you. And as if that wasn’t enough the first 100 people through the door will get a special jam print by Cloonan and McKelvie! It’s a doozy. Check it out:

And that’s not even the finished product. After the signing we’ll have a very limited quantity for sale but this is the only time you’ll be able to get it for free.

Cloonan began in minicomics and was part of the art school anthology Meathaus Collective along with James Jean (Fables covers). Since then she has gone on to collaborate with Brian Wood on Channel Zero: Jennie One and the Eisner-nominated Demo which Wizard dubbed its Indie Comic of the Year in 2004, and with Steven T. Seagle (The Amazon) on the Vertigo title American Virgin. She’s currently finishing up the second volume of her own solo graphic novel East Coast Rising as well as a new series of the hugely popular Demo. In amongst all that she managed a bit of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and PIXU with Vasilis Lolos and the brothers Moon and Ba. Busy bee!

Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s magical “love letter to music” Phonogram never sits on our shelves at Gosh! for long, and Warren Ellis described it as “one of the few truly essential comics of 2006.” Since then they’ve completed a second volume of the series which is now available at Gosh! as an exclusive signed Bookplate Edition.

All three will be here on Saturday the 5th of June at 2pm and so should you! We’ll have them signing ‘til 4pm but if you want to get your mitts on the exclusive McKelvie/Cloonan jam print you’d best get here early.

See you there!
