Here at Gosh, we like to make Free Comic Book Day a real family affair, and so we'll be kicking off as always with our popular Kids Drawing Workshop Table, where a plethora of artists will join kids aged 8-12 at our drawing table. No need to book, no payment required: just pop along and join when space becomes available. We've got an amazing range of artists from the Flying Eye Books (Ben Newman and special guests), Bog Eyed Books and friends (Tor Freeman and Sarah McKintyre) and Improper Books (Laura Trinder and friends)! All kids participating will also get a grab-bag of FCBD titles.
And while that's going on, we'll also have an incredible line-up of artists doing live painting in our windows! Dan White, Crom, Hurk, Lizzy Stewart, Paul Shinn and Isabel Greenberg will all be working away with paints and pens, so pop along to see some Real Live Artists at work!
We'll have a massive range of FCBD 2018 titles available on the day, especially ones aimed at a younger audience. Because if comics can't be for kids, we're all doomed to future irrelevance as a cultural curiosity! We'll be opening early to accommodate the day, so get in the queue nice and early. Here are the rules:
Free comics will be available behind the counter downstairs.
Five per person, maximum one copy of each.
First come, first served.
Please respect your fellow comic fans on the day.
Saturday, May 5th: Free Comic Book Day 2018. See you there!
