Hilda is sitting in her tent at night listening to the rumble of the storm passing overhead when she hears a bell. As she hurtles towards the vanishing tinkling sound, Hilda unwittingly embarks on an adventure into strange worlds ruled by magical forces. Luke Pearson tells this exciting tale with his stunningly adept use of line and colour, demonstrating a grasp of graphic storytelling far past his years. Hildafolk is a stellar beginning to what is already a burgeoning UK comic talent. Pre-order will be available from next wednesday.

24 artists each take 7 pages to tell their version of the creation of everything. 24 artists and comic creators each deal with a tale of creation over the course of 7 pages. We’ve already heard about the cosmic farts, oversized bearded men creating the universe in a week, cataclysmic divorces, giants with irritable bowel syndrome, master carpenters and potters, orbs of energy and galactic seeds. Time to turn the reins over to another bunch of creative people to come up with hopefully even more ludicrous answers to that timeless question: where did this all come from?
With an introduction by freelance journalist, curator, lecturer and writer Paul Gravett whose brainchild Comica festival has become a staple of the British comics scene and featuring the contributions of artists such as Stuart Kolakovic, Blexbolex, Luc Melanson, Jon McNaught and Luke Pearson, it will be an anthology to match the best!

Hamgrad Utopia Porcina by Marthes Bathori is the subject of this week’s Curios bit. A tale reminiscent of our very own Dogcrime by Blexbolex, Hamgrad presents us with a world where through our own gluttony and greed, gene enhanced pigs subdue the human race with idle hedonistic pleasures, in order to eventually enslave and finally harvest our bodies for food. This stunningly printed, albeit altogether disturbing book, is available from Les Requins Marteaux, acclaimed French underground comics publisher and kindred souls.

Hi All, sorry for the brief but heart wrenching radio silence this weekend. As it happens, the server we use broke down and as it was the weekend, there was no one to fix it. Thankfully the problem was resolved this evening at the behest of our many emails and phonecalls. The shop and website are both back up and running and we apologise from the bottom of our hearts for having caused any inconvenience to our loyal fans and customers.
For your toils and troubles we are going to do something we only very rarely do, give you a sneak peek at Nobrow Issue 4: Like Night and Day, and if this is anything to set the standard for the next big bad Nobrow mag – I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

Thanks to Zulfqar and Julien for having us yesterday at Gift 10 Vyner street for the launch of their Nobrow product range, it was a blast! People loved the books and we reached out to a bunch of people who hadn’t encountered us yet. You can still buy our products at Gift as well as exclusive Small Press books and other goodies, well worth a trip.

The Lovely folks at Gift 10 Vyner street gallery have been kind enough to launch a range of NoBrow products at their gallery with a festive first Thursday tonight. For all those who can make it, swing by, we’ll be there from 6-9pm – whilst there you can have a look at our latest book ‘Ada’ which we only received yesterday still wet from the presses…
