That's right, I've sent the files off to the printer and I should have the books back within a week. Before I go to TCAF with the collected How to Date a Girl in 10 Days and Everything You Never wanted To Know About Crohns Disease, I want to have a small London-based book launch (considering what How to Date is about). Orbital Comics have kindly obliged:
Friday May 1st from 7.30pm
@ Orbital Comics, 8 Great Newport Street, London WC2H 7JA (gmap)
With music, drink, original artwork in the gallery, and a chance to get your copy signed.
Print out the flyer (above) to ensure entry on the night.
"I'm a 33 year old man in a stable relationship and am about as sensitive as an extra-safe condom. How To Date A Girl In 10 days reminds me of when I wasn't - when fear of boys with guitars, of meta, of balloons, of everything filled my life and made it worth living - or, at least, made it the life I was living and I knew damn well I didn't have (or want) a choice. It's full of blessed friends who know nothing, blessed friends who are righter than you'll ever be and blessed, blessed London. It's funny and true and necessary." - Kieron Gillen (Phonogram)
"Touching, awkward, funny, a beautifully drawn slice of real life." - Leah Moore (Wild Girl, Doctor Who)
Also available on the night: the printed edition of Everything You Never Wanted To Know About Crohns Disease
"I thought it captured perfectly that discomfort/fear/anxiety that you have in the back of your mind in social situations" - Jeffrey Brown (Unlikely, Little Things)
"This is a truly great comic and a real achievement" - Paul Gravett (Graphic Novels: Stories to Change Your Life)
For those outside London or unable to come, the books will be available to buy at TCAF and then from my website (which will undergo a redesign) upon my return. I'll also be announcing a couple of new projects around this time.
