Nov. 27, 2019: Black Crown Signing

Orbital Comics proudly invites you to an enormous event with none other than curation operation Black Crown!

Founded in 2017 by Shelly Bond, Black Crown’s mission has been to harbour an environment wherein creators and creations commingle, corrupt and correlate to new comic book series. This alternative comics manifesto has lead to runaway successes, like Punks Not Dead, Kid Lobotomy, Assassinistas, Lodger, Femme Magnifique and of course Black Crown Quarterly.

The show kicks off at 6pm on Saturday 26th October with a mega signing, featuring a wealth of creators from the Black Crown talent pool, including: Peter Milligan, David Barnett, Martin Simmonds, Alison Sampson, Dilraj Mann, and mroe surprise guests.

The party also doubles as launch night for a very special Philip Bond Retrospective Exhibition which will be adorning the walls of the Orbital Gallery. The exhibition runs until 27 November.

Past Events

Oct. 19, 2019: The Marked #1 Signing

David Hine appears at Orbital Comics on Saturday 19th October at 6 PM to celebrate the launch of The Marked #1, his new Image Comics / Shadowline series created alongside fellow writer & artist Brian Haberlin!

The Marked may look like cool young influencers, but beneath the designer clothes, their bodies are tattooed with the magical glyphs of an ancient order that secretly protects the world against evil forces. With no new occult threats, The Marked use their tattooed powers solely for the pursuit of pleasure until a young woman called Liza creates a dangerous new form of Hybrid Sorcery. The party is over for The Marked. You’ll believe in magic—terrifying, soul-destroying magic.
