It’s that time of year again: we’re slipping on our tight jeans, waxing our moustaches and riding our fixed-wheel bikes to trendy East London for ELCAF. This year we have no less than seven – yes, seven! – amazing creators in tow: John Aggs (Ricky Rouse Has A Gun), I. N. J. Culbard (Celeste), Mark Stafford & David Hine (The Man Who Laughs), Oscar Zarate (The Park), ILYA (Room For Love) and Rob Davis (The Complete Don Quixote). What’s more, there’ll be exclusive better-than-Amazon discounts on every one of our books.
Debuting at ELCAF is the beautiful, gold-foiled hardback edition of Jörg Tittel & John Aggs’ Ricky Rouse Has A Gun. John Aggs will be signing copies from 11am-1pm, and you’ll be able to pick it up for just £20 (RRP 24.99). Read about this mad, bad and brilliant book here.
You’ll also be able to grab a copy of The Good Inn by Black Francis, Josh Frank & Steven Appleby. Hot off the press, and fresh from its first outing at The British Library on Saturday night, it will be available with a free limited edition book plate designed by Steven Appleby.
I. N. J. Culbard will be signing copies of his much-praised first original graphic novel, Celeste, throughout the day.
In the morning, Mark Stafford and David Hine will be around to sign copies of their British Comic Award-nominated adaptation of Victor Hugo’s The Man Who Laughs. Oscar Zarate, creator of The Park, will be around in the afternoon (from 2.30pm), as will Room For Love author ILYA.
Double 2014 Eisner nominee Rob Davis, creator of The Complete Don Quixote, will also be around in the afternoon. Ask him about his upcoming graphic novel, The Motherless Oven. (It’s incredible.)
