The stall keeps going from strength to strength. We've been joined at various markets by local self-publishing cartoonists Miguel Martin (The Weekly Woe), Stephen Maurice Graham (400 Facts), and Dale Mawhinney (Drawn Out), so there's a nice wee Belfast small press scene coming together.
At the next Black Books, we'll have some new additions. Already arrived is ...These City Walls..., the latest Mr Maximo and Rabbit comic by Bridgeen Gillespie, on the subject of the walls of Derry. We also hope to have a 10-page preview of Róisín Dubh, a forthcoming 19th century horror comic by Rob Curley, Maura McHugh and Stephen Daly (as well as some of Rob's other comics, like Freakshow).
If you have a comic you'd like us to stock, email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
