Three Rooms in Valerie’s Head Launch Party

Gosh! Comics
Feb. 22, 2018
London, England

Guests: Dan Berry, David Gaffney

Writer David Gaffney and artist Dan Berry appear at Gosh Comics to celebrate the launch of their graphic novel Three Rooms in Valerie’s Head on Thursday, the 22nd of February at 7:00 till 9:00 PM!

Three Rooms in Valerie’s Head is “British comedy blended with universal regret, this darkly funny graphic novel uses surreal and beautiful visions to explore the ways we remain haunted by our ex-lovers. Valerie has a rich interior life. Serially unlucky in love, to feel better she imagines that her previous boyfriends are dead and that their bodies are kept downstairs in the cellar in a strange, mummified state. Every day she brings them upstairs and speaks to them about what went wrong. What follows is a series of peculiar and funny, and sometimes disturbing short tales about inept lovers, weird obsessions, and socially malfunctioning men who repeatedly fail to build a relationship with poor Valerie.”

David Gaffney’s funny, sad, strange, and very short fiction has been entertaining and moving us since his first collection, Sawn-Off Tales was published in 2006. He’s since written all sorts of things, from novels to narratives in the form of cat posters. Dan Berry’s gorgeous watercoloured comics and illustrations have been a favourite for years, so we’re pleased as punch to have their first collaboration launched here with us on the 22nd of February, at 7 pm and we hope you can join us!
