NELSON WEEK: 19th – 27th November 2011

Tags: , , , ,

To celebrate the release of Nelson, we’re announcing that Saturday 19th to Friday 25th of November is officially NELSON WEEK. Starting at Leeds’ Thought Bubble festival, we’ll be rampaging back down to London leaving a trail of comics excellence in our wake.

19th & 20th November 2011: Thought Bubble Festival
Armouries Drive, Leeds, Yorkshire

Kicking off events at Thought Bubble on the 19th and 20th, the Blank Slate table will be buzzing with Nelson activity, including a signing rota featuring over half the book’s contributors. Appearing alongside German superstars Mawil and Uli Oesterle, it’s going to be one big unmissable Eurocomics celebration. In addition to that, the scholarly Dan Berry will be hosting a panel talk with contributors Duncan Fegredo, Sarah McIntyre, Kate Brown and Editors Rob Davis and Woodrow Phoenix on the 19th at 11:00AM in Bury Theatre.

22nd November 2011, 6PM-7PM: The Cartoon Museum (as part of COMICA)
35 Little Russell St,  London, WC1A 2HH

Next up is a night at London’s The Cartoon Museum, where contributors and invited guests will be ogling the collection of original art from the book that curator Anita O’Brien has put on display over drinks. If you’re interested in an invite, please contact us at – these are very scarse but we’d love to hear from you!

24th November 2011, 6PM-7PM: Forbidden Planet Megastore
179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR

On the 24th November, we’ll be taking Rob Davis, Woodrow Phoenix, Warren Pleece, Gary Northfield, Simone Lia and Tom Humberstone to the Forbidden Planet Megastore for a signing. All books bought on the night will see 100% of Forbidden Planet’s profit going to Shelter!

25th November 2011, 6PM onwards: Gosh!
1 Berwick Street, London, W1F 0DR

Finally, we end the campaign in style with a huge public launch party at Gosh! on the 25th. Josh and the team at Gosh! have been absolutely amazing in their support of the book, offering 100% of their profits on all copies of the book they sell – including the exclusive-to-Gosh! limited-to-200 Frank Quietly Bookplate Edition. There will be drinks, a chance to get your book signed by the Editors, Roger Langridge, Sarah McIntyre, Rian Hughes and many more (to be announced), games, a mini-exhibition of original art and much more.

We can’t wait! Where will we see you on Nelson Week?
