Scott Pilgrim and the stinking old comic collectors of London

Afternoon imaginary web pals. A couple more items of London related comic news for you today...

First up, Hayley at Gosh! has asked me to let everyone know that Gosh! are celebrating the release of Scott Pilgrim V5 with another of their brand spanking lovely new bookplate specials. As someone who owns a copy of the Hellboy Darkness Calls Fegredo bookplate edition, I can confirm that it's well worth picking up one of these beauties.

Anyone interested in getting their hands on a bookplated Pilgrim should follow THIS LINK to Gosh!'s website. While you're there, make sure to read Hayley's excellent weekly updates on what's new in store. And, if you want to know just how AWESOME the new Scott Pilgrim is, you could do worse than read the thoughts of blogger number #1, Chris Sims.

I've ordered my copy. But while I love me some Pilgrim, I have to admit that reading it does make me feel ancient. If you're too wizened to cope with the surreal antics of a 20something Canadian and his friends, may I suggest that you get yourself along to London town's February comic market...

Here you'll be able to rub dandruff covered shoulders with the capital's ageing back issue hunters and pick up some reassuringly old comics. But get there early chums, this month's mart will be busier than usual as it comes with added Obama...


Should I get my flyer slabbed now?

Here are the directions....

...if you get lost, just follow the stink.
