Just a little note to all our dear customers, due to some rather dull administrative issues also known as an office move (or, if you prefer, some bizarre happenings in the week leading up to Halloween) all orders from our online shop will not be shipped until Monday Nov. 3rd. Apologies for the inconvenience – we’ll make sure we stick a couple of postcards in there for you :)

Nobrow is proud to be exhibiting at the third annual Locust Moon Comics Festival, one of the fastest growing shows in the indie comics world, and we’ll be there trading fist bumps with some genuine comic book rock stars, all the coolest up-and-comers, and you! More importantly, we’ll be there all day, ready to help you get your hands on some bonafide hits from the Nobrow library. What’s that, you say? You’ve already read modern classics like the Hilda series, Dockwood AND The New Ghost? Well, what about Obsolete? Or the latest installment in our Eisner-nominated anthology Nobrow Magazine? Those too? Hey, that’s great! Becuase we’ll also be bringing along some of that new hotness, like Jamie Coe’s Art Schooled, Roman Muradov’s (In A Sense) Lost and Found, Dustin Harbin’s Behold! The Dinosaurs!, and Corinne Maier and Anne Simon’s Marx for all of you Nobrow aficionados certain to be in attendance.
It’s all happening on Saturday, October 25th, from 10am until 6pm, at The Rotunda (4014 Walnut Street, Philadelphia). The Nobrow team will be at Table S18-19 (in the Sanctuary) where we’ll be pulling out all the stops, so be sure to stop by and check us out. Maybe bring along one of those cheesesteaks we’ve been hearing so much about…

It’s that time of year again; Lakes International Comics Art Festival! We’re gearing up for a weekend in the fair town of Kendal where we’ll be joined by author of Art Schooled Jamie Coe. And to add a bit of Nobrow spice to the weekend’s festivities we’ll be running a competition to give away a copy of the limited edition magazine Nobrow 2: The Jungle to one lucky LICAF go-er (this one’s like gold-dust, you don’t want to know how much it’s going for on Amazon). Come over to stall 13 on the Ground Floor of the Clock Tower on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th October for more info, and to say hullo.

September seems to have propelled itself past us like a bat of hell (or perhaps that rocket fuel we experimented with this summer has taken effect). Either way we’re approaching the last week of this manic month and there’s a heck of a lot more on the cards. This weekend is the London Art Book Fair at the Whitechapel Gallery in East London. It’s the first time Nobrow will have a stand there so we’re super excited to be part of the throng. Over the course of the weekend we’ll be joined by two artists, Jamie Coe and Simona Ciraolo, who will be signing books with us at Table 18 on the ground floor. But selling our wares at London’s biggest Art Book Fair is not enough, pffft don’t be silly, we’ve got far more for you to do than that! At 4pm on Saturday 27th, a workshop titled Book Dissection: The Art and Craft behind the Product will be taking place at Whitechapel and will be run by Nobrow co-founder Sam Arthur and designer Emily Sear. Dissect our books, recycle the materials and create your own. There are limited spaces so reserve now or forever be filled with regret.
Later that evening we’ll be officially celebrating the release of Jamie’s new graphic novel Art Schooled with a launch at Gosh! on Berwick street. Jamie will be at Gosh! in the afternoon for a live window drawing and from 7pm onwards we’ll be toasting his book with drinks, a signing and much, much merriment.
All this in the middle of an office renovation. Multitasking at its finest.

Nobrow is headed to Bethesda, Maryland and we’re bringing the thunder down hard on SPX!
One of the best and most popular shows in the indie comics scene, SPX is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year, and it’s looking to be the best SPX yet! Nobrow’s US team of former Prom Kings will be there, holding down the fort at Tables W34-35. We’ll be showing off our amazing lineup of books, including John Martz’s Ignatz Award nominated Destination X. We’ll also be bringing in the big guns this year with not one— but two!— SPX-exclusive debut books: Roman Muradov’s hotly anticipated graphic novel debut (In a Sense) Lost and Found, and Dustin Harbin’s insanely detailed and massive leporello Behold! The Dinosaurs!
Not enough for you? Two handsome debut books at one of the greatest comics shows in the world and you still want more? Well how about this: Signings from THREE of Nobrow’s newest cartoonists!
Andrew Rae will be flying out from England to sign his first graphic novel Moonhead and the Music Machine from 11am to 12pm on Saturday, Roman Muradov will be signing (In a Sense) Lost and Found from 1pm to 3pm on Saturday and Sunday, and Dustin Harbin will be signing copies of Behold! The Dinosaurs! on Saturday and Sunday from 2pm to 4pm just for you!
Those deafening sounds of excitement in your very souls, getting stronger with every beat of your heart? That would be Nobrow— bringing the thunder as promised.
