Wrappers’ Delight


How did Darth Vader know what Luke Skywalker had got for Christmas? Did he feel Luke's presents? No! It was the wrapping paper that gave it away.

Christmas is almost upon us and SelfMadeHero are planning to go out with a bang! On the second of December we’re publishing GONZO, a graphic biography of Hunter S. Thompson by Will Bingley and Anthony Hope-Smith. To make GONZO the perfect present for the Hunter S. Thompson fan in your life we’ve given some comic shops a little something extra to make it a truly outstanding gift.

For release on 2nd December, the following retailers have a limited supply of double signed GONZOs complete with exclusive sheets of GONZO wrapping paper adorned with illustrations of typewriters, whiskey bottles, cigarettes and massive bags of err… asprin!?

LEGAL NOTICE : medicine makes you better, drugs make you sick.

Dave’s Comics – Brighton (mail order from Dave’s)

Forbidden Planet Megastore – London (you can pre-order, the first live signing is this Saturday! FP have some extra wrapping paper so you may able to order copies with wrapping paper via your local store.

GOSH! – London (not one to be outdone, you can also get a GOSH! exclusive bookplate edition on request)
