Today, I received a bunch of comic books from publisher Blank Slate Books, including their upcoming release, Nelson, a much anticipated anthology edited by Rob David and Woodrow Phoenix we've mentioned and showed pages from before. Including work from Paul Grist, Ellen Lindner, Philip Bond, Sean Phillips, Glyn Dillon, Kate Brown, Rian Hughes, Jeremy Day, Warren Pleece, Duncan Fegredo, Posy Simmonds, Carol Swain, Roger Langridge… and so many more. All telling one exquisite corpse of a story of one woman's life in the twentieth and twenty-first century.
I've had a quick flick through and have now made a start from the beginning. It's already great and I can't wait for the rest.
But what it doesn't have is a bookplate by Frank Quitely. Like this one.
Because you'll only be able to get that when you buy a copy from Gosh! Comics in London, who are hosting the launch party on the 25th of November. Go here to find out how to get yours.
That's just after my 39th birthday. I wonder…
UPDATE: Looks like I won't be reading it right now, my wife has run off with it.
