The Tide Turns

 It's been a weird few years, and things are hardly great again, but Paper Jam, as a comic-making entity is BACK. Believe it, fools!

Under The Restless Sea is a zine of sea-themed comics and art, made as a kind of warm-up to get back into the swing of making stuff, before we make a full 'And That' anthology in early 2023.

Featuring work by Torgo Wells, Jon Sapsed, Steven Flanagan, Jack Waugh, Michael Duckett, Grace L, sidestep, Oscillating Brow, Sara Qaed and Michael Dodsworth - it's awash with loads of lovely aquatic imagery with a dark surreal edge, and will be available for spectacularly cheap.

Paper Jam will be running stalls at a load of great this weekend, including:
Saturday 10th: Kendal zine fair (er, can't find details online, but it's in the clocktower during the day)
Saturday 10th: Lubber Fiend Market (Newcastle NE1 3PZ, from 12pm)
Sunday 11th: Star & Shadow Christmas Market (Newcastle Shieldfield NE2 1BB, 11am-3pm)

Where you'll be able to get all our gear, including Under The Restless Sea. We'll also hopefully get some copies in Travelling Man comic shop (in Newcastle) soon!

If you're based anywhere near Newcastle and are interested in getting involved with Paper Jam, we're open to all, meet monthly, and there's perhaps just time to get involved with the main sea anthology. Go! Go! Go!
