Pocket Geek / Small Press Day 2017!

Saturday 8th July 2017! It's Small Press Day! It's Pocket Geek convention at Gateshead Library!

Paper Jam will be celebrating the former by being at the latter!

Check out some top quality comics and art from Brittany Coxon, En Gingerboom, Paul Thompson, and more – including Paper Jam’s latest team anthology The Amazing Adventure Comics Machine …And That. In addition to having wondrous things for sale, we’ll be demonstrating our verbosity (or just making fools of ourselves) taking on the Anime Attacks crew in another session of daft panel game ‘Just A Comics Minute’, and we’ll be running collaborative drawing games throughout the day, hoping for participation from everyone – whatever your level of experience, everyone can do comics!

Of course, there's tonnes of other varied interesting stuff afoot at Pocket Geek - Gaming! Anime! Cosplay! Workshops! Including one on visual narrative by En, which is sure to be superb:

Temporary relocation

NOTE! Due to circumstances beyond our control, the June meeting (8th June), as with the May meeting, will be in the Mile Castle pub, just down the road from Travelling Man. We'll try and book tables. Highly likely to be on the top floor.

Hopefully, back at Travelling Man for July meeting.

Amazing Adventure Comics Machine ...and that

It's true: our fourteenth anthology, in glorious full colour, is now out in the wilds.

The Amazing Adventure Comics Machine ...And That is our second foray into comics aimed specifically at kids (the first being the classic, and now out-of-print, Space Monkey).

This time we have a loose theme of 'adventure' (and perhaps 'mind-bending metaphysical comic-creation' too).

Featuring stories by Anton Brand, Brittany Coxon, Cuttlefish, Hannah Potter, Jenny Coxon, K. Ben Clarke, Mike Duckett, Oscillating Brow, Pauline Holland, Paul Thompson, and Terry Wiley.

It's got a dual launch at two of our favourite events: Canny Comic Con last weekend and Maker Faire on 1st and 2nd of April.

Get to it! If you want to check your puzzle answers or see the secret list of all the comic ideas depicted on the cover, you just need to... look very carefully.
