Alby Figgs down with Dolly DD in Memory Lane

The latest Alby Figgs episode sees Alby take a stroll down ‘Memory Lane’. Yeah, I know, hard to believe, but true! Follow the footsteps of Geezer Gus, Dolly DD and Ted Turncoat the Teddy Boy Tailor, right here http://wp.me/p2xlpi-25

And in case you missed last weeks thrill engorged instalment, ‘Milk Bar’, here’s a handy link to that particular dairy flavoured gem http://wp.me/p2xlpi-20

Alby Figgs in ‘The Library of the Subconscious’

Yes, he’s a big fan of the local library! The Library of the Subconscious, of course. This week’s Alby episode, ol’ Figgsy manages to get Bob the Builder and French philosopher, Jean Baudrillard in the same sentence. Has this ever been done in comics form before? And if not, why not?!

Great Unwashed launch and signing tonight!

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.

Alby Figgs and Fellini. Movie Magic!

The latest Alby Figgs episode, Fellini, available here at http://wp.me/p2xlpi-1O focuses on Alby’s small parts (watch it!) in movie making history. That’s right missus…

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…

Pleece Brothers and Great Unwashed signing at Dave’s Comics!

Yes, control yourselves pop pickers! Those doyens of inky black, noiry, sea-sidey, tea-time tales, Gary and Warren Pleece, will be signing copies of their brand new, Escape Books published graphic novel, The Great Unwashed at Dave’s Comics in Brighton on Saturday 15th September from 1-3 pm!

Special doodles all round!

And if that wasn’t all, there’s only another Alby Figgs episode out today @ http://wp.me/p2xlpi-1G Alby tells the kids ‘how it was’ in latest ep, Buzz Bomb…
