The Paperjammening No.2

Did you know it's Small Press Day on 9th July? Well, it is! What is it? Basically a good excuse for comic shops to run events highlighting small press comic creators.

This seemed like an ideal time to run an event something like The Paperjammening micro con we ran in November. So that's what we're doing. It's imaginatively titled The Paperjammening No.2.

10.30am-4.30pm, Saturday 9th July, downstairs at Travelling Man Newcastle, free.

Come and meet the Paper Jam Comics Collective (full creator line-up TBC). Join in with daft drawing games / art jams. Party party party (in a small press comics kind of way). Support DIY comics.

Wonderlands 2016

Paper Jam Comics Collective will be at Wonderlands - 'the UK Graphic Novel Expo' in Sunderland this Saturday, 28th May, 10am-6pm (two minutes walk from 'University' metro station).

Wonderlands is a comic event really focused on the sequential art medium and the application of it in publishing (eschewing merch, cosplay, etc), with loads of great talks and workshops. Oh yeah, and it's totally FREE.

PJCC will be selling our very fine comics (including our most recent Making ...And That) at very reasonable prices (including bumper discounts on some of our older titles, while stocks last). Plus, er, hey, Sunderland locals - buy a copy of our Newcastle ...And That anthology and we might deface it for you to your preferred specifications!

Maker Faire 2016

Way back in the past Paper Jam Comics collective attended the first Maker Faire at the Centre for Life. Many years, and comics, later we returned to make some comics, have some fun and launch our new anthology, Making... and that.

Over the weekend we made a lot of mini comics with the wonderful visitors to the Maker Faire. We managed to keep a few to scan in and share with the internet (soon) but most were just so good the makers of these comics had to take them home. Hopefully there are hundreds of mini comics going through photocopiers this week ready to be shared with friends and family. 


Along with the mini comics there was the GIANT COMIC. A collaborative jam comic that sometimes went a bit odd but does end cheerfully. 


Favourite themes of the weekend included pigs, cheese, cats, robots and hats. We also took the opportunity to stick some speech bubbles about the place. 

Thanks Maker Faire! We had an awesome time.
