Pleece Brothers signing Montague Terrace 4th April at Dave’s Comics, Brighton

MTDaves_flier

To coincide with the publication day of our new graphic novel, Montague Terrace, we’ll be signing and launching off, Viking-stylee, at the brilliant Dave’s Comics, 5 Sydney St, Brighton BN1 4EN on Thursday the 4th of April from 6-8pm.

Come one and all and delve through the lace curtained cover to discover a world of magic bunnies, nervous magicians, third-rate 60s pop-crooners, Special Ops OAPS and much, much more. What’s more (I told you there was more), each copy bought on the night will be specially defaced by a special limited edition of one doodle-scrawl!

Expect the usual enlightened (?) back-chat from the Pleece’s, original artwork on display, cosy-toed ambience and an endless supply of Ki-ora or other similarly refreshing refreshmentation.

Great Unwashed in Forbidden Planet Top 3 Graphic Novels List of 2012

Ever on the ball with things pertaining to our own neglected publications, we’ve only just come across this post by nice guy in comics, Kenny Penman, for the Forbidden Planet Blog, where he’s placed our book The Great Unwashed at number 3 in his best graphic novels of 2012, just behind the immense Building Stories by Chris Ware and equally superb Love and Rockets, New Stories 5, by Los Bros Hernandez. To say we’re honoured and chuffed at this doesn’t really cut the (Pat) mustard, but we are and hopefully this kind of praise and recognition will eventually help get our book out further to the gasping public, craving for tales of paranoid pirates, terrible teenage poets, kitchen-sink-marmalade-on-cheap-sliced-white drama and dysfunctional American dynasties!

If any of you are in London tonight, me and brother Gary will be launching our new graphic novel, The Great Unwashed, published by Escape Books at the Phoenix Artist Club, 1 Phoenix St, London WC2H 8BU with a song and a dance, from 6-9 p.m.
Escape Books publishers Paul Gravett and Peter Stanbury will be on hand, fezzes on heads, as it’s also this month’s Comica Social Club event.
The first 100 copies sold will also come with a limited edition Reg Chivers ‘not-so-saucy’ postcard, specially squiggled and doodled on by yours truly.
We look forward to seeing you if you can make it.

N.I.C.E Unwashed signing Saturday!

Warren’s going to be signing copies of The Great Unwashed at The N.I.C.E. Comics Expo in Kettering tomorrow, Saturday 23rd. There’ll be limited edition postcards available for everyone who buys a book! He’ll be on a table with Pauls Rainey and Gravett, if you want to find him.

Great Unwashed thanks and signing @ Dave’s Comics tomorrow!

 

Many thanks for everyone who came to our Brighton launch last night at The Hotel Pelirocco and made it such a greatly unwashed evening. Now, go on and shower.

Wondrous prizes were to be had in the Reg Chivers style raffle, including a years supply of pig custard, a copy of the brand new book and a half bottle of sherry (don’t say we’re not cheap) amongst other gems.

For those of you who couldn’t make it to the smallish, but perfectly formed velveteen heart of the Pelirocco lounge, fret not, because we’ll be signing copies of The Great Unwashed at Dave’s Comics tomorrow, Saturday 15th, from 1-3 p.m. The first 100 copies sold will also come with a limited edition signed postcard featuring a hand-drawn sketch of Wigan’s finest, a Mr R Chivers, so don’t miss out on the predicted stampede of Pleece Brothers merchandise!

As mentioned before, there’ll also be a London launch and signing at The Phoenix Arts Club on Wednesday 26th from 6-9 p.m. for those of you residing in the smoke, coinciding with Paul Gravett’s Comica Social Club monthly event. A must!

And if that wasn’t enough, and you can’t wait to get your peep holes on some new Pleece Brothers related material freshly inked and on a screen near you now, the latest Alby Figgs episode, ‘Sis’ is now up at the Alby site here and now http://wp.me/s2xlpi-sis where it’s almost as if old Ingmar Bergman’s taken over from fairly oldish Waz Pleece in this week’s director’s chair! Oh, man of few words…
