‘Completely demented … Montague Terrace functions both as a time machine and as a repository of dreams/nightmares’, The Observer/ The Guardian
Montague Terrace is the new graphic novel from British comics herberts, Warren and Gary Pleece, published by Jonathan Cape on the 4th April 2013, today! Recently highlighted as graphic novel of the month by The Observer, you can now order the book online via Jonathan Cape or through Amazon, or even better buy it personally through one of the many excellent comic shops and book shops throughout the nation. Today, April 4th, we’ll be signing and scrawling on copies at Dave’s Comics, Brighton from 6-8 p.m. and then at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, Shaftesbury Avenue, London on Friday the 12th of April, 6-7 p.m. You can also get signed copies from Gosh in London from the 12th onwards.
On top of all this, we’ve launched a new website dedicated to all things Montague Terrace. There’s more info about the book and in the weeks to come we’ll be posting up behind the scenes artwork and new exclusive one-offs!
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.
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…
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…
