Black Market, 2 May 2010

The next Black Market is coming up - but this one'll be a bit different. It's part of the Cathdral Quarter Arts Festival, and it'll be in the festival marquee in Custom House Square, not the Black Box. There'll be arts and crafts workshops, live music, guest DJs and freshly cooked food - follow this link to read more (and here's a load of photos of last year's event on Flickr, from which I've nicked the two photos below). The Black Panel will of course be there with our selection of self-published comics from the best writers and artists we know. See yez there.

There's a new Black Panel Diaries online as to what's coming up and how April went.

Black Books, 18 April 2010

This Sunday is Black Books day again, and Andy and I will be there as ever with the finest selection of comics by writers artists from both sides of the Irish border - including a few names new to us, but far from new to the Irish small press scene.

We have These City Walls, Bridgeen Gillespie's latest Mr. Maximo and Rabbit comic, exploring the history of the walls of Bridgeen's home city of Derry.

We also have a large selection of comics by Dublin writer Rob Curley, including his 50s crime/supernatural/Americana series Freakshow, featuring art by Stephen Thompson, Stephen Mooney, Declan Shalvey and Bob Byrne, and his superhero book Atomic Rocket Group 66, drawn by Will Sliney.
Also from Dublin is writer-artist Gerry Hunt, and we have his debut from 2003, a slice of inner city myth-making called In Dublin City.

We hope you'll come and sample our wares.
