SelfMadeHero to Celebrate Spring with a Party at Gosh! Comics

25 February 2014

We’re hosting a party at Gosh! Comics on Friday 7th March – and everyone’s invited! Quite aside from the free booze, there’ll be signings from three of our finest creators: Reinhard Kleist (The Boxer), ILYA (Room For Love) and Mark Stafford (The Man Who Laughs).

Mark Stafford will be signing copies of The Man Who Laughs, his British Comic Award-nominated collaboration with David Hine. An adaptation of Victor Hugo’s classic, it was lauded as “absolutely stunning and grotesque” by Cory Doctorow. ILYA will be signing his brilliant original graphic novel Room For Love, which made the Independent‘s list of 2013’s best comics and was heaped with praise elsewhere. Fresh from his talk at the Goethe-Institut the night before, Reinhard Kleist will be signing copies of his brand new book, The Boxer, a multi-award-winning graphic biography of Holocaust survivor and champion boxer Harry Haft. Kleist is well known for his previous biographies, which include the Eisner-nominated Johnny Cash: I See a Darkness.

The event takes place at Gosh! Comics, 1 Berwick Street, Soho, London, W1F 0DR, 7-9PM.

It’s happening as part of Gosh!’s British Comics Month – a celebration of British comics artists, writers and publishers. You can join the event on Facebook here.
